Dessert and my father do not mix. He does enjoy them occasionally; however, a piece of cheese sounds like a better last course than a piece of cake. Obviously, I did not inherit his taste in food. But over many Halloweens, I have discovered his weakness... peanut butter cups! So for this past Father's Day, I made this chocolate peanut butter pie. Wouldn't you know, for the first time in my life, Dad got a second helping of dessert.
An Oreo crust, cream cheese peanut butter center, and topped with a dark chocolate ganache. I could have done a little more with the presentation but I was too eager to inhale the pie instead. So roasted peanuts served as a wonderful garnish. And any dessert that can overcome my Dad's resistance to sweets is definitely a keeper; especially on Father's Day.
