Peanut Butter Pie!

I have something dangerous sitting in my fridge - a peanut butter cream pie from Yoder's Restaurant in Sarasota, Florida. About a week ago, we were watching a Man v. Food marathon and saw a segment that featured the popular joint. While everything looked delicious, I was most drawn to the mouth-watering peanut butter cream creation they featured. Hello, I could eat an entire jar of PB in one sitting! I have enough control not to do it, but peanut butter is definitely one of my weaknesses.
Anyway, it just so happened that my boyfriend was in Sarasota a few days later for a work trip and decided to stop by the Amish Village restaurant for some fried chicken and good old comfort food. Lo and behold, he came back from the trip with a surprise pie for me - and OMG, it is delicious!
The problem is, it's super rich and probably a gazillion calories. So I've been trying to shave off really tiny pieces so as not to fulfill my calorie quota for the day off one slice. Fortunately, for those of you who want to make a peanut butter pie at home, you can do it the low-cal way. Bless, the web. Here's one particularly yummy looking recipe that I discovered. While I'm sure it's not quite as good as the Yoder's version, chances are it's still pretty dang delicious!

And if you feel like drooling, here's the Man v. Food clip that first captured our attention.
