Servings 4


  • 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup cold peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup ice cold water
  • 1 PC. egg beaten with 1 tablespoon of water for egg wash


  • Make the peanut butter crust by placing the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut the butter into 1/2-inch pieces and sprinkle it over the flour. Toss the butter until each piece is coated with flour.
  • Add the peanut butter and cut it up into 1/2-inch chunks as well. Toss to coat.
  • Using your hands, squeeze the butter and peanut butter in the flour, until all the pieces are smashed.
  • Then start rubbing and squeezing flour, butter and peanut butter together until the ingredients start to become sandy and clump together a bit when you grab a handful and squeeze.
  • Sprinkle the water over the mixture and toss with a wooden spoon or spatula until a shaggy dough forms.
  • Using your hands, start kneading the dough until all the dry ingredients are incorporated.
  • Split the dough into two disks, flatten and wrap securely with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for an hour or overnight.
  • Once the dough has chilled, preheat the oven to 350˚F. Roll out one disk of the dough on a generously floured surface and move it to the pie tin. Prick the bottom of the tin with a fork and line it with a piece of parchment paper. Fill the tin with pie weights, dry beans or uncooked rice. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the pie crust from the oven, and gently lift the parchment paper filled with the pie weights off the pie crust.
  • Brush bottom and sides of the crust with the egg wash and place back in the oven for 5 more minutes or until the crust look dry and shiny.
  • Remove and let cool on a rack. Add your filling and cook at 350 degrees for 35 minutes until the filling is bubbling.
