But a long long time ago there were signs all over stating "99 cent breakfast" in facilities located in out-of-the way strip malls. You could get 2 eggs, grits, and toast any way you like'em. That included a stout cup of coffee.
One glorious sunny day we stumbled into this hole-in-a-wall with a tempting display of homemade pies behind glass doors. We decided to split a piece of peanut butter pie. And ever since this discovery, I have been en-route to find this pie recipe.
It was light, delicate an absolute sublime accommodation to an ever slightly breakfast. My taste-buds had never merged with such a creamy delight. i have been perusing it ever since and finally came upon an old family heirloom I'm including below. Enjoy, my friends.
For the Crust:
1/4 c sugar
1/2 cup margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups crushed chocolate cookie crumbs
For the Filling:

In a bowl blend cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, butter, and vanilla until creamy. Fold in whipped cream gently. Pour into prepared pie crust.
