Peanut Butter Pie w/Meringue

img_9577A sweet old lady shared this recipe with me many years ago when we worked together at a little restaurant. This was her signature pie and people came from all around for a slice of this!

She didn’t really measure so I had to catch her one day when she was whipping this up so we could get it written down.

This recipe was adapted from a recipe that we found in the United States Cookbook under the state of Georgia. The original recipe was called ‘Peanutty Peanut Butter and Banana Bread’ and was baked in a loaf pan for 1 hour and 10 minutes at 350. Our recipe has some variations to the original ingredients but would probably be just as good baked in a loaf pan as well and would probably be even better with a sprinkle of chocolate chips added to the batter.

Haystacks aka Noodle Cookies

As promised I will share the recipe for the cookies we made earlier today. These are super easy to make and I had made two batches, or about four dozen cookies, in less than 30 minutes.

I’ve always called them haystacks but Mr. Awesome knows them as Noodle Cookies. You can probably add other ingredients, desired or maybe even swap the butterscotch chips for chocolate ones.

Mr. Awesome likes them without marshmallows but with plenty of peanuts. The kids like them with marshmallows. That’s how I ended up making two batches.

Oh my! I just had a craving for a Fluffernutter… my fingers are still a bit sticky from it too.

I know this is really not the most nutritious thing to eat for lunch but it certainly was good.

You can also substitute the peanut butter for Nutella…. mmmm. Continue reading “Fluffernutters”
