Yoder’s Peanut Butter Cream Pie
I was watching Man v. Food on the Travel Channel one night and he was visiting Sarasota, Florida. This peeked my interest because I live in Florida and I like to see places that I could potentially visit. On this particular episode the host visited an Amish restaurant named Yoder’s, which is named after the owners. If you want to see the full episode click on this link. www.yodersrestaurant.com. Everything on the menu is made from scratch including their pies. Apparently, the most popular pie is their Peanut Butter Pie. The way they make it is so different to what I have seen before. I Googled the recipe and I think I found one that matches pretty well. Click the title of the recipe below and it will take you to the blog that I found the recipe at.
I made the pie and overall it is a very easy recipe. I happened to have all the ingredients on hand except the cool whip. I will say it can be very messy to make the pie but in a good way.
*Update- Served the pie and it was a big success. People went back for seconds and thirds. Make sure to keep it very chilled, the pudding will break down very quickly otherwise.
1-cup cold milk
½ cup cornstarch
3 egg yolks
3 cups milk
3 tablespoons butter
Mix cornstarch, salt, 1 cup milk, eggs yolks and vanilla with a wire whisk until smooth. Set mixture aside.
Heat 3 cups milk, butter and sugar till scalding, stirring constantly. Add cornstarch mixture to hot milk while stirring with a whisk. Cook till thickened. Remove from heat before boiling. CHILL.
1 cup powdered sugar
½ cup crunchy peanut butter
Baked 9-10-inch deep pie shell
2 cups whipped topping (sweetened)
Mix powdered sugar and peanut butter till small crumbs form (with mixer).
Place ½ crumbs into pie shell. Spoon chilled pudding on top of crumbs. Place remaining crumbs on top of pudding, reserving a little to sprinkle on top. Top with whipped topping.
Enjoy! Serves 6 at Yoder’s (or 12 small pieces)
