I made this pie this weekend. Morgan is home, and her boyfriend was coming to dinner. Her boyfriend loves pie, and I love to bake pies for him. After dinner, I sent the pie home with him. Even though it was difficult to part with this pie. (But I can make another one!) It’s sweet and salty, which is a flavor combination that I love, and it tastes like peanut brittle–only soft, of course. It’s like peanut brittle in a pie! If you like peanut brittle, and you like pie, you’ll love this pie!
By the way, need a great pie crust recipe? I have one here.
How to make Peanut Pie:
1 cup dark corn syrup
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups salted cocktail peanuts
pastry for single-crust pie
In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs. Stir in corn syrup, sugar, butter, and vanilla extract. Add peanuts. How easy is this? Line an 8-inch pie pan with pastry. Pour in the peanut filling. Bake at 350-degrees, on the bottom oven shelf, for about 40 minutes.
Serve with ice cream!

I have two 4th of July BBQs to go to this weekend and I am always looking for something different to bring. I will be making this for both. Looks yummy and I have everything on hand to make it. Thanks for the inspiration!
