Peanut Butter Buckeye Pie from @KatrinasKitchen

So, you know in my previous post how I told you about making hundreds and hundreds of buckeyes? Well, I got a little bit tired of rolling out little buckeyes when a little idea popped in my head. I was working with a double batch x a gazillion of filling at the time. Do you think that I am kidding? Here are some pictures I was tweeting (taken from my phone).

This is one giant buckeye, people. Grab a fork and dig in. You’re welcome. The filling is the recipe from my husband’s grandmother. I ♥ having the original recipe written in her handwriting.

    O.M.G. I am sure when my husband sees this he will go berserk! We both LOVE buckeyes! He may decide that this will be his birthday cake next week…

    I can't find words for this pie. Apart, perhaps, from "absolutely sinful". I don't know how many hours I've got to spend running in order to have a piece of this, but whatever it takes — I must have (at least) one!! :))

    Wow! That looks AMAZING. How creative! My husband (and me and my daughter) would flip over this. I might have to make this SOON. I host a weekly linky, Crazy Sweet Tuesday and would love for you to join sometime!

    Making a Buckeye Pie is pure genius. So much easier, than rolling all of those little balls, and just as tasty.

    Have a great weekend!

    I have my grandmothers buckeye recipe and am the official "Buckeye Baker" for my family every holiday season (somehow over the years all my friends have come to expect them too!).

    I'm hoping I don't short out my keyboard from all the drool running down into it right now looking at your pics for this pie.

    And I noticed a link to a PB milkshake … I'm headed there next! I LOVE peanut butter and ANYTHING made with it! Have a feeling I'll be coming back here often!

    Thanks for sharing! (btw found you through TidyMom's Love the Pie event!)
