Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chess Pie 1

Today marks a special day. No it’s not my blogiversary nor is it my birthday (but it will be in just over 1 week). Today is my 1000th post! The last time I celebrated a post # mile marker it was for post #100 – Stuffed Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies. Here we are 900 posts later and you’d think I would have lined up something extra spectacular to celebrate. Unfortunately I did not plan ahead by contacting my favorite products/companies to host a giveaway and alas I did not possess the fundage to provide it myself. So you know what you’re going to get? A pie straight to the face!

Yes I am going to hit you in the face with a pie and you’re going to like it. And by that I mean I’m going to show you the pictures and recipe for this pie and you will be so intensely drawn in that before you realize what’s going on, your face is pressed against the computer screen attempting to devour it. How do I know this? Because (assuming you love PB+Choc) it’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chess Pie!

Chess pie doesn’t have to be “just pie” (derived from Southerners’ dialect: it’s jes’ pie). I already proved that by making a meyer lemon version but decided to take it a step further by using a chocolate cookie crust, throwing peanut butter into the filling, and sprinkling chocolate chips all over the place. Evidently there was room for more sugar. Happy 1000th, I’ll see you next time.
