Creamy peanut butter custard is poured into a peanut butter graham crust, and topped with fluffy chocolate whipped cream. It is like a peanut butter cup in delicious pie form!
Heat the oven to 350 F and spray a 9″ pie dish with non-stick spray.
In a food processor, add the graham crackers and pulse until they form rough crumbs, about 20 pulses. Pour in the melted butter, peanut butter, and sugar. Process until well blended and the crumbs are all coated. Pour the mixture into the prepared pie dish and press the crumbs into the dish. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool completely.
In a medium sauce pan, whisk together the milk, egg, sugar, and cornstarch. Place the pan over medium heat and whisk until the mixture starts to get warm. Add the peanut butter and whisk the mixture until it thickens and starts to simmer.
Turn off the heat and add the vanilla and butter. Whisk until completely incorporated. Pour the mixture through a strainer, then into the prepared crust. Smooth the top so the filling is even, then lay a piece of plastic wrap directly on top. Chill for four hours, or overnight.
When you are ready to serve, prepare the whipped cream. Pour the gelatin into the cold water and allow to stand for five minutes, or until completely bloomed. Heat for five seconds in the microwave, making sure it is melted, and cool to room temperature. Pour the cold cream into the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Whisk on medium low speed until the sugar and cocoa are blended in, then increase the speed to medium high. When the cream is softly whipped, pour in the cooled gelatin. Whip until the cream forms medium peaks. Spread on top of the chilled pie.
