Miss Hampton’s Peanut Buttah Pie

Miss Hampton was the grandmother of a friend of mine.  I never met her but from what I understand, she was a Southern belle so beautiful and fiery Margaret Mitchell couldn’t have conceived of her if she tried.  Legend has it that each night on the family farm, she would stand on the porch in her peignoir with curlers in her hair and a menthol dangling from her lips and a shotgun in hand.  There she’d fire a few shells as a warning to all potential intruders.  She also never cooked.  Which is why she’d make this pie.  “It requires no cookin’.  Just an icebox and a vodka and Coke plus a pack of Kools to pass the time.”


You can use graham cracker or chocolate pie crusts ready made.

8oz. cream cheese

2 c. milk

¼ c. powdered sugar

1 c. crunchy peanut butter

2 cartons Cool Whip


Let cream cheese soften.  Put all ingredients in a large bowl and blend.  Pour filling into pie crusts.  Chill (helpful heresy–put in freezer for a quick solidification)

*Makes 2 pies
