Hi Phaedrus,
I am hoping you can help me get the recipe for Bill Knapp's Peanut Butter pie.  
It was delish and I would like to make it.  I remember it having a chocolate 
layer on the bottom and the top being peanut butter.  The top may have been 
peanut butter mixed with whipped cream.  The pie stood several inches high.  
Hoping you can help.  Thank you.


Hello Mary,

Sorry, but I cannot find any mention at all of Bill Knapp's peanut butter pie. I have photos of Bill Knapp's menus, but they just say "many types of pies" - they don't list the individual types. From what I know about Bill Knapp's, I'd say that the pies and cakes were most likely made at their central commissary and delivered to the restaurants. Only the commissary employees would have known anything about the recipes for them.

I will post this. Perhaps one of my readers can recommend (Based on experience) a peanut butter pie recipe that tastes similar to Bill Knapp's.
