Comments

  1. Sounds great…I love peanut butter, and, have a great frozen peanut butter pie recipe…this is considerably different. Can’t wait to try. Thanks for posting recipes on periodically, I am a foodie and always looking for new one!

  2. Ok, I need help with the scalded milk? Do you just get it warm or really burn it?

    • Melissa@StockpilingMoms says:

      You do not burn it – it will have a “skin” on the bottom of the pan – do NOT scrape it.

  3. Jennifer says:

    I would love to make this. Which steps are the meringue? I was a little confused on which steps are the cooked mixture and which are the meringue.
