This is a very yummy recipe, yet is simple. If you like chocolate pie you will love this.
Make a Crust:
2 cups of flour
1 cup butter or margarine
4 Tbles sugar
1 scant tsp. salt
Pat this into a 9×13 baking dish and bake at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until it turns a golden brown.
Next in a mixing bowl cut 2/3 cup smooth peanut butter and into 2 cups powdered sugar. Set this aside until the crust and pudding mixture has cooled.
6 cups milk
4 eggs beaten well
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup flour
Mix 2 cups of the 6 cups of milk in a sauce pan. Whisk together very well. Add other 4 cups of milk. Mix constantly on medium heat until mixture boils. Reduce heat and continue mixing for 2 minutes until well thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool stirring every few minutes to release heat and to prevent a skin from forming across the top of your pudding.
After the crust has cooled spread the peanut butter mixture onto the top of you crust and then pour pudding over the crumbles of sweet peanut butter.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate it 4 hours before serving.
My grandmother always served this covered with whipped cream but tonight I served it with out. Instead I sliced a banana and spread it across the top of the pudding.
