Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pie
three grain vanilla pie crust dough
1 egg
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 cup sugar
½ cup peanut butter
8 ounces cream cheese
2 cups milk

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Roll out the pie crust dough. Spray a pie pan generously with oil, and press the prepared crust into it. Prick the crust all over with a fork, and put weights into it. Bake for 10 minutes, remove, and increase the oven’s temperature to 400 degrees. Meanwhile, pour the milk into a saucepan and simmer on low until half of the milk has evaporated. Microwave the cream cheese for about 40 seconds, or until softened. Blend together the cup of milk, sugar, cornstarch, butter, and cream cheese until it is liquefied. Melt the peanut butter in the microwave, and stir it into the cream cheese mixture. Pour the filling into the pie crust, and bake another 15 minutes. Allow the pie to cool before refrigerating it for at least two hours.
