Whoever said they don’t like pies, simply didn’t know what they were talking about. Pies make for a decadent dessert and are a quintessential delicacy during festivals like Thanksgiving. Not just that, they make for an interesting recipe for Sunday brunches or weekend getaways with family and friends. The pies we know today are relatively a recent inclusion to a history that goes back to the time when man devised a way to prepare the dough in order to bake it into a crust and find things to fill it with. While we all know of delicious pies such as apple pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, blueberry pie, and chocolate pie, one recipe that almost never gets old is the peanut butter pie.
