A Recipe for Peanut Butter Honeycomb Pie (plus Pottermore pics)

Published August 24, 2011

Ahem. So, this might’ve made me do a tippy tappy happy dance:    FIRST  GLIMPSES  INSIDE  POTTERMORE   Have you seen it??? They’ve definitely got some cool stuff going on there. I’m intrigued to try it out.

Annnnnd this might’ve made me do an even AWESOMER tippy tappy happy dance:


I know, right? I grabbed the recipe from Bon Appétit (clickety-click on over for it), and it’s now the husband’s “officially most favorite food ever.” While the original recipe doesn’t call for meringue topping, I thought it would be an excellent balance for the the peanut butter pie’s salty richness; plus, it was a great way to use up the leftover egg whites. I’m glad we added it because, well, it totally rocked. In the future, the only other thing I’d change is to eliminate the addition of salt in both the crust and filling. The pie tasted fine with the extra salt, but since I use regular butter (vs unsalted like they call for) I could’ve left it out. Needless to say, Bon Appétit, I love thee. *sigh*

Did I mention it’s AMAZING? Um, yeah. It is.

So. How’s YOUR week going?

What fabulous thing are you eating (or reading)?

    Are you competing with Paula Deen to kill us with yummy food??? j/k

    And speaking of J.K… wow… I am sooooo going to be hitting Pottermore when it opens. I wonder if I’ll get Gryffindor if I think to myself how much I want it when I’m being sorted???

    Peanut butter. Potter. Pie. Best “P” words in the English language!

    Rob, yes, yes that’s exactly what I’m trying to do (note of wisdom to all present–don’t look at the calorie count). *evil smirk*

    And I agree with Dani…best “P” words! Bring on the Pottermore!

    Yummo! and Pottermore… “but Pottermore seems especially designed to destroy work productivity the world over.” Great, another time sucker for me! :)

    and of course you are bringing this to the next fam get together… right Mary, right?

    Tania, I’m definitely a peanut butter girl too. ;0)

    Lori, I was thinking the same thing! Drat-it-all.

    Lisa, I make no promises the pie will survive uneaten from my kitchen to the get-together, but . . . I will try. *hee*

    Pottermore IS exciting – and this pie looks absolutely divine. House elves couldn’t have concocted a more delicious-looking treat.

    Lisa, hmm…it wasn’t so much Peter I was thinking about. *sneakily gulps and wipes pie from face* ;-)

    Erin, yay for house elves!!!

    LOVELY LITTLE UPDATE: Bon Appetit featured my version (above photo and all) of their Peanut Butter Honeycomb pie on their front blog page today. And I didn’t even submit it. *commence short and sweet geek-out moment*

    And….your pie photo is by far the best of all up on Bon Appetit’s blog. Way cool.
