Personal Notes:
Mom found this recipe a while ago and it is irresistible. I have not met one person who dislikes this pie (unless you don't like pb) This pie is very very rich and heavenly. Whenever I make this pie, I make an extra one for the doctor I work for, he loves it. Also, when you make this pie, go ahead and make two and freeze one. Enjoy!!!!
