    Delicious!! Followed the recipe exactly and my family and guests loved it. Just the right amount of peanut butter flavor. Make sure to stir the custard constantly when cooking. When it starts to thicken, it sets up quickly. Try it with just a little chocolate drizzle on top. Yum!

    I made this for Christmas Eve with very high hopes. Peanut butter and banana cream are two of my favorites so I'm thinking this would be a slam dunk. I was HIGHLY disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly with no changes. I felt this recipe had no flavor except for a very mild hint of peanut butter. I will agree with the previous reviewer that the custard sets up very quickly. Mine went from liquid to custard in an instant. The pie sets up perfectly in terms of consistency, but the flavor is seriously lacking. I have made several pies and other desserts from SL in the past and this is only the second one that didn't deliver in my opinion. I hate to say it, but this isn't even worth making a second time to tweak it. :(

    This pie tastes really great. Made it twice now. But I would welcome any advice on how not to have the crust fall apart. First time I made it in a spring form pan. Worked ok, just not very pretty when you slice it. Putting it in the pie pan, it just fell apart when sliced. I guess just add more butter?

    A huge hit at our house! I did use twice the peanut butter called for...maybe that's why the fabulous flavor!
