Kitchen Queen Contest Entry #11 - Wally's Peanut Butter Pie

Kitchen Queen Contest Entry #11 - Wally's Peanut Butter Pie



First of all, you all need to know that I am a professional Chef, and possess a certain degree of celebrity. When Mistress first gave notice of this contest, I thought "Yeah! "I can excuse myself!"", like it was the Olympics or something...
Then I sobered up & had some coffee. (Yoko would understand, trust me).

This is not to imply that an amateur chef or a good home cooker could not have one f'ing fantastic recipe, not at all. In fact, the best recipe books you could get are from churches, with church ladies, giving away family recipes to one-up each other! (Martha would understand, trust me).

BITCHES, all.

Being a great Chef is quite like being a great Prostitute; If you are any good at it, you will be used & sore.
Do, please excuse me as I am used, bitchy & sore...

And then you have to deal with the constant plagiarism; I've had restaurants steal ideas, decor, recipes and even my mantras du jour & open up a place a few miles away from me. (Ozzy would understand, trust me).

But, what to share?

I have been so, so busy lately that I will go back to the first rule of cooking:

#1 K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple Stupid.

So I have decided to submit a life & time saver of a dessert recipe, that is in keeping with my new province:

PEANUT BUTTER PIE

Pre-bake one deep-dish pie shell and set aside

Whip till creamy:

1 1/4 Cups softened smooth peanut butter

2/3 Cup softened butter (or quality margarine)

1 teaspoon vanilla

Add and whip till smooth:

2 Cups confectioners sugar

In a separate bowl, whip till frothy:

3/4 Cup heavy or whipping cream

Add cream to butters, whisking at a steady rate, then pour into pie shell and chill for twelve hours minimum.

Now, I have been drizzling melted bitter chocolate over my pies (as pictured), but it could be served in any number of ways...

Imagine it with a strawberry jam sauce...

How about an Oreo cookie crust in place of a pie crust?

What if I used almond or cashew butter instead?

Mostly the mind reals......


And my all time favorite order from one Henry Mancini:

"Turkey on white, hold the mayo....."

  3. Margarine!?! Good god, Wally!

    2. Mr. "Canned Cranberries" has a nerve to criticize your margarine.

    3. There is something elegant in the extreme of sliced canned cranberry sauce; I wil not take rhat wway from mister von laxitive..........

  4. I like. I'm not fussed about the margarine. I think this would work well with a pot of tea or a Pink Panther.

    1. The secret of margarine is knowing when one may use it, and in this recipe you really cannot taste over the peanut, vanilla & sugar...

      Now I want a Pink Panther!

      Delete
    2. Now I want a Pink Panther made with butter. Churned, not stirred.

    1. No, this is the peanut butter. I made it for the restaurant as I am trying to promote the traditional ingredients & country cuisine of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

      I do think I will make tartlets for the holidays using cashew or hazelnut butter though.

  6. How about "praliné de noisette"! Décadent! And I like Margarita!!!

    Shall I say... this the best recipe of the contest so far?

    1. Decadent is the word, and I forgot to say that this pie will go far beyond the usual eight servings, go for twelve, as it is very rich and flavorful...

    1. No, but it has occurred to me that the pie filling could be substituted for boy butter though....

      Mmmm!

  10. Never seen a pie made from peanut butter!
    Pecan...yes... Pumpkin... yes.... all sorts of berry combinations but never peanut butter!
    Truly a triumph Wally! Despite all the soreness and bitchyness....

    2. Prinny, give it a try; you'll LOVE IT! Provided you have peanut butter there. Or just wring out a koala bear over the crust. It'll taste kind of different though.

      My first comment had the word 'squeeze' there where 'wring' is, and I got thinking about that and....no.

      Delete
    3. I'd guess it would taste all Eucalyptussy if I substituted roadkill Koala for the peanut butter Ms Nations

  11. It may sound like a strange dish, but one tiny bite will take care of that idea....

    1. Are your shots up to date, Bitter?

      Delete
    2. You'll just have to make one then, won't you. But I must warn you, waiting for the twelve hours for it to set can be a living hell... Especially for a mouth-foaming salivator.

    3. Could you substitute fanny batter for margarine?
