This is the pie fresh out of the oven.
And this is a slice as part of my breakfast. I am a peanut nut and I really enjoyed this pie. The texture makes it a very different experience from a peanut butter sandwich. The nuggets of peanut embedded in the sugary, chocolaty matrix give you little pops of peanut flavor. I think much of the success of this pie relies on using fresh nuts; I found mine at Buford Highway Farmers Market. Store-roasted nuts in a jar would be much harder and not as flavorful. Sorry, Yankees, you will have to come down South to experience this little gem.
