Pi"e" Day

Being that we have two math teachers in our home, and that yesterday was the Pi day of the century, we just couldn't let the day go by unnoticed. Being I am not a regular pie baker, I chose a recipe with a simple crust, that was easy to make. My sister-in-law made us homemade Kahlua for Christmas, so I have been looking for ways to incorporate it in some baking (the mocha kahlua cupcakes were a mixed reception at our house). So I made Kahlua, Peanut Butter Cream Pie for our celebration.  The crust was actually made from pretzels, followed by a layer of crumbled peanut butter and powdered sugar, which was then smothered by the kahlua pudding blend.

And even better, Joshua came home for spring break to celebrate with us!  The mix of sweet and salty was even better than I thought it would be. I'm thinking that switching the pudding from vanilla to chocolate might be tasty too, but it will probably be another year before I make a pie.
