Peanut Butter Pumpkin Pie
- 1 store-bought pie crust
- 1 cup light brown sugar packed
- ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 15 oounces pumpkin puree
- ½ cup Jif Whips Pumpkin Pie Spice flavored Peanut Butter creamy peanut butter works great
- 2 large eggs lightly beaten
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 cup heavy cream
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- In a large bowl, add in the brown sugar, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Whisk until the spices are incorporated and there are no lumps.
- Add in the pumpkin puree, peanut butter, 2 eggs, heavy cream, and maple syrup. Mix on low with a hand mixer until combined.
- Roll out pie dough and line an 9 inch pie plate with dough. Trim edges and crimp them.
- Pour pumpkin mixture into the pie crust.
- Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Without opening oven, reduce oven to 350 degrees and continue baking for 30 - 40 minutes. To make sure the pie is done, give it a wiggle. If it slightly jiggles in JUST the middle like jello, then it's done. If it jiggles all over, it needs to bake longer. Turn off the heat and crack the oven door slightly. Let it cool in the oven
- Once completely cooled, store in the refrigerator.
- In a large bowl, pour in the heavy cream. Whip on medium until it begins to thicken. Turn the mixer on high and beat until the cream reaches soft peaks.
- Sift in the powdered sugar and continue mixing until it reaches a firm consistency.
- Store in the fridge.
