|Good to the last bite|
I've had this recipe for ages, and followed it faithfully... until this time around. I pulled out the recipe to use up my left over Easter candy ingredients. I had purchased an extra block of cream cheese by mistake. It's not something I use on a regular basis. What was I going to do with that? I also had a handful of peanuts and a bit of cream to use up, and there's always chocolate chips and peanut butter on hand.
As I read through the recipe I realized I had enough cream for the ganache, but not enough to whip for the peanut butter layer. The whole purpose of making the pie was to use up what I had on hand, not go out and buy more. So I beat in some plain Greek yogurt (maybe a half cup or so) to lighten it up a bit. It's much denser than the original recipe, but still delicious. In fact, I liked how it turned out so much, I may try this substitution again.
