    Hi! New here, and I am looking for a peanut butter pie recipe. Best crust for a pie like this -- graham cracker, or pastry-type? What about some chocolate ganache?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Peanut butter is quite heavy, so it would be nice to lighten it up a bit - maybe a peanut butter mousse or cheesecake with chocolate ganache? I imagine that a graham cracker crust would work really well here.

    There's a recipe in this video which could work well in pie form - skip to around 8:30

    Graham cracker crust works best in my opinion and chocolate ganache is a good idea but if you feel like experimenting you can try oreo crust.

    Any kind of crisp wafer cookie can be used to make a cookie crumb crust. Just use the same technique you would use to make a graham cracker crust, but instead of graham cracker use cookie crumbs. A chocolate wafer, or even a Oreo with the filling scraped out. A gingersnap, vanilla wafer, butter cookie, shortbread cookie. Any crisp cookie will work.
