I went to a local inn restaurant the other day and had the most amazing chocolate peanut butter pie ever!! Literally I couldn't get enough of it. Can someone help me extrapolate what the recipe was??

I have looked online but some of the pictures look like the layers are looser than what I had. The desert had a cream colored layer, a chocolate layer and a peanut butter layer and then a chocolate ganache (I think) on top. The chocolate and peanut butter layers were on the thicker side not thin and silky. Anyone ever had something like this?

    Anyone?

    It could have been classified more as a "bar" than a "pie" - although it was in the shape of a pie, it was texturally more similar to a bar. I'm just trying to figure out how to recreate the three layers and get the right texture. I don't do pastry that often so i'm a little lost. Any help?

        I made a peanut butter pie years ago that tasted like a huge reeses peices. Try Epicurious and see if it's still available. It was rich rich, but everyone loved it. If it's not there, I can look through my magazines. I have limited time, the little one has the flu AGAIN. : (

          I will def! I've been looking all over and I just haven't found the right recipe. The thing that there seems to be a lot of online are "pies" that are smoother in texture. This definitely was thick and rich. And it had three layers - one cream, one chocolate and one peanut butter. I wonder how they made the layers so thick and rich?

            If you could find a picture, it would help. Thick and creamy doesn't really help narrow down what there is out there are chocolate pb pies go.

              Did it look like anything in the pic below?

              Have you tried contacting the restaurant to ask for the recipe? You never whether they'll comply until you ask.
