Peanut Butter-Banana Cream Pie

Pastry Queen, Rebecca Rather's Peanut Butter - Banana Cream Pie
Pink Parsley also posted a similar recipe on their blog so you can check that out too!

My friend Chad's mom made this pie for us a few years ago and it was love at first bite! I'll be making this tonight to accompany our dinner since I've been raving about it forever now. My husband is beginning to think it's nothing more than a fairy tale. If you have a soft spot in your heart for peanut butter, banana cream pie, and chocolate...you have to try it!

* Update - In the case you are not making this pie to be devoured within a day or two, I would omit using the bananas on and in the pie. To keep it fresh longer just slice fresh bananas on top when serving with the whipped cream and chocolate drizzle!

Blog vs. Print:
- Pie Crust (Traditional vs. Graham Cracker Crust)
- Hot Fudge (Homemade vs. Jar) I purchased a chocolate salted caramel sauce for my topping
- No lemon lime soda in print version

Hope you all have the chance to spend the day celebrating something or someone you love. I will be spending the night in cooking dinner with my husband and relaxing on the couch with our dog.
