    1       C            Creamy peanut butter
    2       Tb           Butter, melted
    1       C            Heavy cream
    1       Tb           Pure vanilla extract
    4       Oz           Semisweet chocolate
    2       Tb           Butter
    2       Tb           Salad oil

   For the crust, crush the wafers and pat the crumbs into a greased 9
   pie pan, pressing evenly ont the bottom and sides.
   For the filling, whip the cream cheese until fluffy. Slowly mix in the
   sugar, peanut butter, and melted butted. Whip the cream and vanilla
   until firm. Blend 1/3 cup of the whipped cream into the peanut butter
   mixture. Fold this mixture into the remaining whipped cream until
   totally blended. Fill the pie shell, smooth the top, and chill in the
   freezer for at least 20 minutes.
   For the topping, combine all but the optional ingredients and melt
   them in the top of a double boiler until the chocolate melts. Cool
   slightly. Spread the mixture on the cooled peanut butter pie,
   starting from the center and working out. Chill or freeze until ready
   to serve.
   If desired, decorate the top with crushed peanuts and white and dark
   chocolate shavings before serving.
