Yoder's Amish Peanut Butter Pie is a classic, light pudding pie with peanut butter crumbles. It is a perfect treat for the whole family.
In a medium bowl, mix corn starch, salt, 1 cup of milk, egg yolks, and vanilla with a wire whisk until smooth. Set aside mixture.
In a medium sauce pan heat 3 cups of milk, butter and sugar until scalding., stirring constantly. Add the corn starch mixture to the hot milk while stirring with a whisk. Cook until thickened. Remove from heat before boiling. CHILL.
Mix powdered sugar and peanut butter until small crumbs form (with mixer).
Place 1/2 of the crumb mixture into the pie shell. Spoon chilled pudding on top of crumbs. Place remaining crumbs on top of pudding-reserving a little to sprinkle on top. Top with whipped topping and crumb sprinkles.
