Peanut Butter Pie – This No Bake Peanut Butter Pie recipe is all peanut butter with a no bake crust!

peanut butter pie

This past Sunday a fellow food blogger, Jennie Perillo, host of In Jennie’s Kitchen, lost her husband to a massive heart attack. It was sudden… without a warning.

My heart aches for her and her girls, and words cannot express how sorry I am for their loss. They have been in my prayers every day since the tragedy.

Despite the fact that I, and many others, don’t know her personally, all we wanted to do was help her in any way possible.

But she had only one simple request; make a Peanut Butter Pie for Mikey and share it with your loved ones. She reminded us that tomorrow’s not a guarantee – seize the moment, and don’t wait to say I Love You.

Jennie, may your strength prevail to help you through this difficult time, and may there be comfort in knowing that someone so special was and will always be a part of you. Our heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family.

    This has been such a tragedy and my heart aches for Jennie! I only knew her through Twitter and her blog, but felt a kinship…hers is one of my very favorite blogs.

    I finally bought the ingredients tonight for a peanut butter butterfinger pie that I will make for my hubby tomorrow. I’m a bit late as my brother was in town visiting last week….I just took the time to really enjoy his visit and my family.

    It’s just so, so sad & my heart and prayers are with her and her girls!
