I won't say anything because you already did! I agree though! I have trouble making pie crusts & I need a lot more practice.

OK crewsk, DON'T DO IT! Here is my sad story from yesterday. I decided I was too lazy to make a pastry crust (and didn't have any cheats in the freezer darn it!) so my youngest daughter and I decided to use a crumb crust. WELL...when you go to spread the peanut butter crumbs on the bottom, it tears up the crumb crust. I grumped rather loudly about this. We thought all was lost, but then decided to "create" a different dessert. We ripped up the whole crust, smooshed the peanut butter goop and crust together (added a few more crumbs to make it a good consistency) and then used THAT as the crust. We then opened a bag of white chocolate chips (although I think butterscotch would be nicer) and added a few regular chocolate chips for colour. We tossed this into a warm oven for about 15 minutes and then smeared the chips together with a knife. Let it set and WOW! We hoovered that baby! Now we need to name it.

I'm sorry it didn't turn out for you Alix, but at least it wasn't a total loss! I guess I won't be trying the graham cracker crust after all. I am glad that you got a new dessert out of it though!!

Yes, it wasn't a total loss. But geez! What an idiot I was. I just wasn't thinking at all. LOL.

Now I have to try crewsk's pie and Alix's Chocolate Peanut Butter Madness (how's that for a name?)!

It's never a mistake if you make something new and good out of it!

If the peanut butter and sugar are made into a dough, couldn't you roll it out some and then place in the pie shell?

Thanks PA, I like it! It was good for a few giggles anyway. And my youngest daughter now has some practice "rescuing" a kitchen booboo under her belt. (This is the candy sorter crewsk! LOL)

Good idea Rainee, wish I'd thought of that before I went and messed up my beautiful crumb crust!

That may work Rainee, but it's very crumbly & doesn't stick together well. I've got a batch of the peanut butter stuff in the freezer so I'll try that & see if it works. Thanks!!

A quick Google search will give you a good recipe for modeling chocolate. It's a recipe that creates just what the name implies, a chocolate dough that is easy to work with, and that can be rolled, shaped, or otherwise worked much like clay. I'm sure that the recipe could be altered into a chocolate/peanut butter flavor. I'll have to look at the recipe I have when I get home.

Oh Audeo, where are you. We need your expertise here.
