Following our trials and tribulations as we attempt to remove all grains, many starchy vegetables and most sugars from our diet while maintaining our love of good food! We strive to make all of our recipes GAPS and/or SCD compliant. Note: We didn't know about "Grain-Free Gourmet" when we chose our name. We are not affiliated with those good folks.

Peanut Butter Pie
It was a big hit with the adult non-GAPS guests. My mom even asked me for the recipe. So here it is. (Hi, Mom!)
1 recipe pie crust
1 recipe marshmallow frosting
2 cups salted organic peanut butter, at room temperature, divided
Fold one cup peanut butter into at least two cups frosting. You can add more so that it appears light and fluffy and so it tastes good :) Spread in prepared and cooled pie crust. Place the whole lot into freezer until it is firm, at least four hours.
Spread second cup of peanut butter on the frozen first layer of your pie. Freeze again until second layer is firm. At least two hours.
Spread a thick layer of marshmallow frosting on top of the whole thing, until it's close to the top of your pie crust. Freeze again until serving time.
This does not freeze solid, so you won't need to bring it out too long before serving. I did take it out, then put it back in, because it was thawing out.
