Christie Burns’ Salted Caramel-Chocolate-Peanut Butter Pie stole the show at the Arkansas State Fair's Pillsbury Pie Crust Pie Baking Championship. This dessert artfully blends the sweet, creamy taste of peanut butter with the savory flavor of salted caramel, and it melts in your mouth. Plus, it’s easy to make!

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Bake the pie crust as directed on box to make a 1 crust baked pie shell, using 10-inch glass pie plate. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in medium microwavable bowl, microwave the caramels and milk uncovered on high for 1 to 2 minutes or until melted and stir until smooth. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the melted caramel. Stir 1 1/2 cups peanuts into remaining caramel. Pour the caramel mixture into the baked pie crust.

Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir the condensed milk, egg, and peanut butter until smooth. Stir in the chopped peanut butter cups. Pour in the crust over the caramel mixture. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until filling is set. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Drizzle the melted candy bar and reserved caramel over top of pie. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup peanuts. Lightly sprinkle kosher salt. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.
