In the Diner: Thursday Pie Project–Peanut Butter Candy Pie

Today's pie was a bit quicker to put together, and I didn't make the traditional crust. Not making the crust really caused me to feel like I was cheating. Then I remembered that this is *my* pie project, so I can make up the rules. Last Thursday I had a doctor's appointment, and since we're [...]
