Black-Bottom Peanut Butter Pie
January 1, 2009:
I am giving up sweets!
Only health food for me!!!
I will use this sword to block all desserts!

For this month's You Want Pie with That? Nic of Bakeologie and Carrie of Cooking With Carrie selected the theme: "Resolution Breaker Pie."

Black-Bottom Peanut Butter Pie
I made a Black-Bottom Peanut Butter Pie that is now renamed Fat-Bottom Pie!
You can find the recipe here on Epicurious.

Black-Bottom Peanut Butter Pie
It has a graham cracker crust, thick layer of chocolate ganache and a peanut butter mouse. I made 1/4 the recipe and used peanut butter (creamy) instead of melting peanut butter chips.

Screw those resolutions!!!
I need sugar, peanut butter, chocolate and butter!!!

My little 3-inch friend is channeling me!

Black-Bottom Peanut Butter Pie
I'm so okay with my fat-bottom. Oh well, I'll start my new years resolutions again on Chinese New Year...

Wow, that looks really decadent! Love the little lego man :) I would never be able to stick with a resolution that banned sweets!

Oooh momma - just pass the pie this way and I won't be forced to use my sword! That looks like it should be illegal. Yummy!

You're not really giving up sweets for the new year, are you?

To all those who think I might actually consider "no sweets" a new years resolution....No way! :) The most I would do is a "no sweets" on the third Wednesday of even number months... :)

And here I was, thinking I would buy a toy cow to keep in the kitchen as a little reminder for myself...I missed your partidge in a pear tart, so I'm glad I had another chance to see it.
Wishing you a happy (and sweet-filled) new year!

There's no way you can go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate. Yummmmm
That said, I don't keep peanut butter cups in the house for obvious reasons.

Love the little guy, but it would take a whole army of them to keep me away from that pie. Chocolate and peanut butter, oh yeah.

If that pie were anywhere near me, I'd dive into it also! Love the Playmobil friend. And great call on using the real peanut butter. It's so much better than chips.

Love the Lego guy! Peanut butter and chocolate is a great combination! I love that you are renaming it fat bottom pie, too cute!

Monica H said... [Reply to comment]

Yeah, that would just make my fat bottom even fatter. But it's so pretty!

Patricia Scarpin said... [Reply to comment]

Oh, that is the cutest post ever! :D

The pie looks delicious but I need to adopt that resolution too... :S

Lauren said... [Reply to comment]

Oooh that looks and sounds soooo good! And I love the playmobile guy! I was away so I didn't participate this month- I can't wait for next month's challenge!

Maria said... [Reply to comment]

I love your photos...and of course the pie looks great too!

Anne said... [Reply to comment]

I love your little playmobil man, too cute! As for that pie... wow. I'd need help to resist that, too!

Cathy said... [Reply to comment]

LOL!!! I would totally break my resolutions if I was anywhere near this pie!

Thanks for this delightful idea, and for such a delicious blog! I've never tried making a pie with peanut butter before, but I'm pretty sure it can only be a hit... What I do to feel less guilty about eating such decadent desserts is have them instead of a proper lunch or dinner. You know, just once a week.

Esi said... [Reply to comment]

Haha, this is a great post. I mean, really the diet has to have room for chocolate and peanut butter. Looks delicious!!

Fat bottom, indeed! You crack me up!

Linda said... [Reply to comment]

my waistline just expanded an inch reading about this pie...


PB and chocolate...YUM!!!!

Girl Japan said... [Reply to comment]

Man... and I never... Black-Bottom, peanut butter.. Oh goodness so Yum! I can not do NO sweets but with my diet.. I do it in moderation a SMALL piece verses a big, huge piece.

I like the sound of a peanut butter pie!

I'M not at home right now and I'm going crazy because I can't make this right now. Even a spoonful of peanut butter would help quell the craving, but I have nothing and this sounds sooooo good!

Great Pie. Great guardian. Did he keep you away. I hope not. Too pretty not to eat it.

Liz said... [Reply to comment]

HA! Too cute! I think you'll win again this month, with the help of your little Lego friend. The tart looks fabulous--that huge pile of PB mousse is calling to me right now. But there's no shame in indulging, after all...

"Fat bottomed girls, you make the rockin' world go 'round!"

Your presentation is so cute, crafty and clever! Even though I would go anaphylactic if I ate that, I still say job well done :)

Jen H said... [Reply to comment]

Yummy! Great job!

Mary Ann said... [Reply to comment]

that is so cute! I remember playing with those little guys.
I say no to swearing off sweets too!

Jacque said... [Reply to comment]

Mmmm, that looks perfect... and fattening! Good call only making 1/4 recipe.

Yummy!!

Lori said... [Reply to comment]
