  1. Sounds great…I love peanut butter, and, have a great frozen peanut butter pie recipe…this is considerably different. Can’t wait to try. Thanks for posting recipes on periodically, I am a foodie and always looking for new one!

  2. I would love to make this. Which steps are the meringue? I was a little confused on which steps are the cooked mixture and which are the meringue.
