It's officially the beginning of the Holiday Season and Thanksgiving is coming up soon which also means it's PIE Season. Hooray for the Pumpkin Pie! and the Chocolate Pie and the Berry Pie and the Apple Pie and the Banana Cream Pie and the Peanut Butter Cup Pie and all the pies.
Our Peanut Butter Cup Pie filling is made of 4 simple ingredients and starts with thick rich cream and Greek Gods Greek Yogurt layered on top of a chocolate truffle bottom inside a dark chocolate cookie crust. It's so creamy and delicious you might find yourself wanting to eat it all. This pie will go fast so be sure to make a few to share.
