Peanut Butter Pie

My family's Christmas was this past weekend, and I always volunteer to bring a dessert or three. (Yes, we celebrate quite early, but my grandparents go to Florida entirely too early every year; we have to celebrate early.) This year I opted to bring some no-bake pies. Peanut butter, of course, that's always a hit whenever I take it to a party. Then I experimented a bit--Nutella Pie, and Cherry Chocolate Chip. Everyone seemed to enjoy them! I'll post those recipes another day. :)

I love no-bake pies. (Like the Oreo Cream Pie I made for my birthday!) As a general rule, they are easy, everyone likes them, and they are FUN!

This is a recipe I originally got a few years ago, from a friend and co-worker. Someone gave it to her father, because her family loves the one that a local restaurant serves. I've been making it ever since! (Personally, I think it's better than the restaurant.) I love it!
