Only For the Grandkids!

I would only get up at 5am to bake a loaf of whole wheat bread, two peanut butter pies and crockpot  potato soup for these three cuties

Grandkis give you that second chance in life to mother again.  There is no greater gift or feeling of pride you will experience than your grandkids. 

I do have to admit the job was made so much easier with my crockpot and bread machine.  I also buy frozen pie crust.  I have to admit after 20 years of making my own crust no one has mentioned the switch to frozen.  

Here is my mother-in- laws recipe
(God rest her soul)

Ruth’s Peanut Butter Pie
1frozen pie crust (baked & cooled)
**Ruth made her own crust**
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup of peanut butter
One 5.1 oz (144g) instant vanilla pudding
one container of cool whip 

Crumble together the peanut butter and powdered sugar (I use my food processor.). Put most of this crumbled mix on the bottom of the cooled pie crust.  Pour the pudding over the crumbs.  Top with cool whip.  Sprinkle the rest of the remaining crumbs over the top of cool whip. Keep refrigerated.  TIP:  when mixing the pudding the milk is always reduced 1/2 cup for pies.

Sharing the recipe of a loved one passed on is a great way for you to connect the memory with the later generations.  The kids and I will have a great day talking about great-grandma Ruth, while eating her recipe. 

Please share a way you connect the memory of generations past in the comments.  I would love to hear from you!
