Come Up With Another Name Jimmie Carter

Unlike mom, you like peanut butter. Now this pudding pie is choke full of nuts - peanuts that is. ;) I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of this nutty delight!

Serves 12people
cup of dry roasted peanuts, chopped
cup of all purpose flour
cup (1 stick) of unsalted cold butter
cup creamy peanut butter
oz package cream cheese
cup of powdered sugar
cup of heavy cream
tbsp of granulated sugar
small package instant pudding, vanilla flavor
small package instant pudding, chocolate flavor
cups of milk
extra chopped peanuts for garnish, optional
chocolate for grating, optional
maraschino cherries, optional
Combine peanuts and flour and cut in butter; press out into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes; set aside and cool completely. Put crust in fridge to chill further.
Cream the peanut butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar together. Carefully spread on top of the crust layer. Put in fridge to chill.
Whisk puddings together, add milk and whisk for about 2 minutes or until pudding begins to thicken. Carefully spread pudding on top of the peanut butter & cream cheese layer, taking care not to disturb the peanut butter layer. Put in fridge to chill.
Chill mixer bowl and beater in the freezer. Whip heavy cream on medium low speed until it begins to thicken. Add sugar, increase speed to medium high and whip until soft peaks form. Do not over beat. Carefully spread the whipped cream over the pudding layer taking care not to disturb the pudding layer. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and grate chocolate over top. Dot with cherries.
Refrigerate 4 to 6 hours or overnight before serving.
Cook's Notes: This produces a very thin bottom crust. If you like your crust a bit more substantial, and especially if your pan is slightly larger, you will probably need to make a 1-1/2 to double bottom crust. A non-dairy topping such as Cool Whip can be substituted here – if so, omit the heavy cream and sugar and simply spread the topping out on top of the pudding layer. For testing purposes, I used regular salted Planter's dry roasted peanuts, White Lily flour, Jif creamy peanut butter, Philadelphia cream cheese and Jello brand instant pudding.
