Chocolate Peanut Butter PieHere’s a cool pie for those hot days. This time the crust’s made of pretzels! You crush them and blend with butter and sugar for an easy press-in pastry that’s both sweet and salty, and only takes a few minutes to bake. Next comes a layer of ganache — if you’re not familiar with that, it’s a simple filling made with two parts chocolate to one part cream. Just heat the cream, pour it over the chocolate, and stir till smooth.  Finally there’s a rich peanut butter-based filling, which you can even garnish with peanut butter cups. From Whitestone Country Inn in Kingston, Tennessee.
