makes 12 servings

The Basic Fundamentals

The pie is best to serve when tailgating socials are planned at home. Be certain it is well chilled between each step to ensure a beautiful presentation.

1 1/2 {8-oz} packages cream cheese, softened & divided
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup plain yellow cornmeal
1 egg
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
6 oz bittersweet chocolate morsels
Optional: Royal Icing

Beat 4 ounces cream cheese & the butter with a stand mixer until smooth. Scrape down the bowl sides with a rubber spatula. Blend in the flour & the cornmeal on Low speed until a dough forms. Cover & chill 1 hour. Reserve 1/4 of the dough. Place in plastic & chill. Roll the remaining dough into a 14 x 10-inch rectangle on a floured surface to a 1/4-inch thickness. Fit the dough into a lightly greased 13 x 9-inch quarter sheet pan. Using a rolling pin, swipe the edges to remove the excess. Gather the scraps, reroll the dough & cut x & o shapes. Place them on a parchment paper-lined half sheet pan. Roll the remaining reserved dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut the dough into 6 {6 1/4 x 1/2-inch} strips & 4 {4 3/4 x 1/2-inch} strips. Whisk together the egg & a bit of water in a small bowl. Brush on the pie crust edges. Attach 2 {6 1/4 x 1/2-inch} strips onto the top & bottom of the pastry lengthwise. Attach 2 {4 3/4 x 1/2-inch} strips onto the pastry sides. The shorter strips will just cover the longer strips to form sharp corners. Brush the top of the strips with the egg wash & chill the remaining egg wash. Cut the remaining 2 strips of dough into 1-inch pieces. Place on the pan with the x’s & o’s. Brush the egg wash over the dough & sprinkle with sugar. Chill 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Pierce the bottom of the dough all over with a fork & place on a half sheet pan. Line the filled quarter sheet pan with parchment paper & fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake 12 minutes. Remove the weights & bake an additional 8 to 10 minutes or until cooked throughly. Cool the crust completely, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, bake the pan with the x’s, the o’s & the 1-inch pieces 7 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.

Beat the remaining package of cream cheese, the sugar & the vanilla with an electric mixer until light, fluffy & smooth. Add the peanut butter & blend 10 seconds on Low speed, just until incorporated. Beat 3/4 cup whipping cream in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. Spread the mixture into the baked crust. Chill 4 hours.

Microwave the remaining 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whipping cream & the chocolate in a glass bowl on High power 1 minute, stirring every 15 seconds. Whisk the mixture until completely smooth. Let stand at room temperature 25 minutes. Gently stir the mixture using a rubber spatula & pour it into the baked pastry shell over the peanut butter mixture. Chill 4 hours to 24 hours. Garnish with the X’s, O’s & the baked 1-inch pieces to resemble a diagram play on a chalk board. Prepare & pipe Royal Icing for added details just before serving, if desired, Slice into squares.

The Extra Point

The pie is equally delicious to serve throughout the year for a variety of celebrations. Simply omit the gridiron garnish.

The Technique

Measuring peanut butter can be sticky business. Use dry measuring cups to capture accurate amounts. Coat the interior with cooking spray, then use a rubber spatula to fill & level evenly by swiping the surface flat.
