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.


Yoder’s Peanut Butter Cream Pie

Pudding Mixture:

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.

Crumb Mixture:

1 cup powdered sugar
½ cup crunchy peanut butter

    I make this pie and have for years. I put an egg merenge on top though. My husband is a truck driver and got the recipe from a cook at truck stop he stopped at in Kentucky.

    I was at Yoder’s last October, several times, and every time I had this lovely pie for desert. Now I would like to make it for my family back in Sweden (where I live). BUT, as far as I understand, everything at Yoder´s is made from scratch, including the pie crust. Does anyone have the recipe for the crust as well?

    This has become my kids fave pie. I Love it too! I use Extra Creamy cool whip for the top of mine, with just about 1/8 of a tsp of vanilla added to it for flavor.
