Ingredients
  

Pie

  • 1 store-bought pie crust or homemade
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 15 oounces pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup powdered sugar

Instructions

Pie

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • 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.

Whipped Cream

  • 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.

Notes

*Do not over-bake the pie. It will cause the pie to crack.

  1. Here are some tips to really go over the top with this recipe: double the amount of peanut butter and have 2 crusts ready, preferably graham cracker crusts. The mixture will likely make enough filling for 2 pies with the extra peanut butter. Add 2 tablespoons of ground carob powder to the filling mixture. It will give it a hint of chocolate flavoring. Have marshmallows or marshmallow cream ready to spread onto the pie. (The carob powder will dry the pumpkin filling a bit before baking, which will help it set faster when cooling.) Follow the rest of the directions. About 10 minutes before the bake time finishes, top the pies with either marshmallows or marshmallow cream. Continue baking the pies - you might need to raise the temperature to 400° to compensate for opening the oven during the last 10 minutes to top the pies with marshmallows or marshmallow cream. The whipped cream goes well with the pies. If you don't have carob powder, cocoa powder works too.5 stars

  2. I will have to check for that peanut butter! I would love to make it and see how long it takes people to notice the taste difference. 🙂
