 The key to pleasing the pallet of a Peanut Butter Pie connoisseur is to
 not mix the peanut butter into the filling. Note that everything is made
 from scratch.
 This extra effort will reward you with excellent flavors. The following
 recipe is from the private collection of a deceased Swedish woman who
 with her husband, Olaf Simonsen, operated a restaurant for over 25 years
 in Ft. Pierce, Fla..
 They were famous, statewide, for their Peanut Butter Pie. This recipe is
 published in the “Indian River Cuisine”.
  OVEN :  350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.   Blend peanut butter and
 confectioners sugar together as for pastry until well mixed and mealy.
 Spread about 2/3 of mixture over baked pie crust. Reserve remainder for
 top. Combine flour, sugar, and salt together; blend in scaled milk.
 Blend mixture into slightly beaten egg yolks. Return to double boiler
 and cook about 2 minutes more. Add butter and vanilla. Turn into pie
 shell and top with meringue. For meringue, beat egg whites until stiff
 enough to hold their shape.  Add cream of tartar and beat until blended.
 Mix sugar and cornstarch and add to egg whites.  Beat until very stiff.
 Spread on filled pie shell and sprinkle on remaining peanut butter
 crumbs. Bake in 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Cool away from draft.
