Mile High Peanut Butter Brownie Pie

 The title sold me, before I even looked at the ingredients.  With a name like Mile High Peanut Butter Brownie Pie, it just had to be delicious.   It was also easy because this time, I copped out and use a ready-made pie shell and a box of brownie mix.  Of course, this is because I am so good and in preparing for Passover, I simply had to use this up.  I also finished off a jar of peanut butter.  I am good.

  6. Bizzy, this really looks delicious. I love peanut butter and this would really hit the spot. You asked about using almond butter. If it has the same consistency and spreads like PB it should work. I'd toast the almonds though. Have a great evening. Blessings...Mary
