PIE! Chocolate Ganache and Peanut Butter Custard??? YES.....YUM!

So I am looking for the perfect Peanut Butter pie...and during this process I am finding and/or inventing lots of tasty recipes! Last night I tried the following recipe that I came up with last week...and the boys(aka guinea pigs) were very happy with the final product. So here is the recipe with pictures (I am trying to remember to do the picture thing..I will try to get better at it!)

Peanut Butter Custard Pie (w/ chocolate)

1 baked pie crust (or if you prefer a graham cracker crust)

Chocolate Ganache:
1 cup dark chocolate chips
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 tbl butter

Peanut Butter Custard:
2 egg yolks
1/12 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
5 tbl flour
1/4 tea salt
1/2 tea vanilla
1/8 tea cinnamon
3/4 cup peanut butter

To make ganache:   In a saucepan add chocolate and cream and heat slowly-stirring constantly- until melted and thickened. add butter and stir until melted and combined. Remove from heat.

Let cool slightly.  Then pour into baked and cooled crust. Cool until firm.

 Now for the custard.  In a microwave safe bowl combine egg yolks, milk, sugar,flour, salt. Whisk very well. Microwave on high  in 30 seconds then whisk well...continue in 30 second bursts, whisking each time until thickened.

Then add vanilla, cinnamon and peanut butter. Whisk well.
Spread custard over cooled, firm chocolate.  Refrigerate for 2 hours. Top with Whipped cream (or cool whip if you prefer).

Then sit back and ENJOY this delicious pie.
