 OK this is for you Linda,
any any of you others wanting the

The Best Peanut Butter Cream Pie

I think once you have this peanut butter cream pie, it will be one of your favorite go-to recipes for pie! This recipe was given to me by a friend who has been making these for over 60 years, you can change out the peanut butter for chocolate or even coconut, so many versions you can make from this basic recipe.

Ingredients:     3 cups milk     3 egg yolks     1 cup white sugar     1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)     2 Teaspoons vanilla

TOPPING:     1 Tablespoon peanut butter     1/2 cup confectioners/powdered sugar
optional: crumble peanuts on top as well if I use chunky peanut butter.

Tub of Cool Whip
Deep dish 1 crust pie shell, frozen work perfect if you don't like making crusts.
If you don’t have a deep dish shell, this will make 2 regular pies

Instructions: FILLING:
Start by using a stock pot on medium high heat, add the following ingredients into the stock pot or large sauce pan, mix milk, egg yolks, sugar and cornstarch with a whisk in the pan and keep stirring until it becomes thick.  This may take awhile, be patient, but keep stirring. When it reaches a nice thick consistency remove from heat.  Grab tin foil or something to cover it and chill it in fridge.

While it is chilling, you need to pre cook your pie crust till browned, poke with fork so it doesn't bubble up. Let cool.

While the crust is cooling and after the filling has chilled, bring filling back out and add the peanut butter and vanilla and beat well with a mixer until nice and creamy.

Pour filling into the baked, cooled pie crust.
Cover with half a tub of cool whip, or more if you want more!

Mix the 1 Tablespoon peanut butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar together to make crumbs for topping.    Sprinkle on top of the cool whip.
*if you used chunky peanut butter then for the topping I also add pieces of peanuts so folks know.

Ta-daa!! There you go, you are done, chill it or eat it now, it's oh so delicious!!
NOW pat yourself on the back because you just made yourself an awesome pie.

To make Chocolate cream pie, switch out the peanut butter for 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder then add pretty slivers of chocolate (or chocolate chips) on top instead of the peanut butter topping mix.

To make Coconut Cream pie, switch out the peanut butter and add 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut then add coconut on top instead of the peanut butter topping mix.

ENJOY!!  ~ Laurrie Nicewander Basiletti *aka* cheyOkota digital scraps

Our Love Story freebie quick page

First I will say SHAME ON ME!!!
After looking through all the freebies I have been putting on here, I realized I just teased you all with this quick page, so sorry about that, today this will be the freebie instead of just a preview :)

The photo is of my beautiful sister and her man, they were perfect for this page, if you knew these two, you would run, no, really, you would I promise, they are the most perfect practical jokers around, let me tell you, one day I woke up and opened my big picture window blind in the living room, and staring in at me was a cosmetology HEAD, yup! just sitting there on my window box looking right in at me, well that wasn't the worst of it, there was another head sitting on the steps hidden in a huge bush for when my hubby went down to his truck for work, and to top that off, another head was stuck on a 5 foot pole and hidden near another bush out near the road, I have to say I truly never know what the neighbors think of this house when they drive by, wonder if they think we have a sick way of decorating!!?? or perhaps they just think we have lost our minds!
That's ok, dear sis, paybacks . . . heh heh heh

next, another preview of Saturday's upcoming HONEY DO LIST and HONEY DO CLUSTERS I had such fun creating this kit, for those men in your life!

Okie dokie folks, it's time for me to finish some laundry, clean up the kitchen, only to tear it back up again, why? because this weekend we are visiting some great friends up in Hartville and I am going to surprise them with homemade luscious PEANUT BUTTER CREAM PIE!!!! (will share the recipe if any of you folks are interested in it, super easy and oh my gosh, just so yummy! if you comment you want it, I will post it)

taken with my phones camera for my friend to torment her last time I made the pie 
I am so bad! Sorry photos are not the greatest with my phone.

yep, that is what I will be getting ready to take to them, I always have to make 2, because when the kids see these pies they always dig right in, my daughter is known to break into something that is meant for elsewhere, so tags now go on things meant for sharing HA and things they are allowed to dig into!

I hope you all have a very Blessed day, will be back soon . . .
