Peanut Butter Pie with Chocolate Ganache-creamy peanut butter filling with chocolate ganache on top and on the bottom!
We need to talk about store bought pie crusts. Specifically the graham cracker crusts. I’m all for making crusts from scratch but I don’t always have time. Or patience. When it comes to pie, I’m in it for the filling, not the crust anyways. The crust is just the holder for all the yummy on the inside.
Here’s the thing about ready made crusts. It’s almost impossible to find one still completely whole in the stores. There’s always a crack or a chip on the crust. Or several cracks. I’ll dig all the way to the back, unstacking 10-15 crusts trying to find one still whole and unblemished.
And when you do find that one perfect crust, you still have to get it home in one piece. The baggers at the stores, they know about your eggs and not mushing your bread. But they just don’t realize how delicate that crust is.
Or worse, in your own effort to carry in all 12 bags of groceries in just one trip, you forget about your perfect crust. You wedge it between the bag with the milk and the bag with the canned goods.
No, a perfect crust is hard to find and keep.
The greatest thing about this pie, besides how amazing it tastes (we are talking about peanut butter and chocolate here) is that it doesn’t need a perfect crust.
The chocolate ganache below the filling acts as a sealer for the crust. Binding all those cracks back together, filling in any chips. Making your pie crust perfect again.
