Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

2/3 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 large eggs, separated, plus 4 large egg whites, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
26 chocolate wafers
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 cup granulated sugar





Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Add 1/4 cup water and whisk until smooth.

In a medium bowl, beat the egg yolks. Add the half-and-half, beating until combined. Gradually add the egg mixture to the cornstarch mixture in the saucepan, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in the vanilla. Add the peanut butter, stirring to combine.

Arrange half the chocolate wafers in the bottom of a 1 1/2-quart baking dish; spread half the pudding over the wafers. Arrange remaining wafers along the outside edge of the baking dish. Spread the remaining half of the pudding.

In a metal or glass bowl, beat the egg whites at high speed with a mixer until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and sugar and beat the egg whites until the sugar dissolves and soft peaks form. Spread the meringue over the pudding, sealing to the edge of the dish. Bake until lightly browned, about 25 minutes. Let cool to room temperature before serving.

This recipe was great. I could not find the chocolate wafers, so I substituted chocolate graham crackers and it turned out great. Thanks. Wishing your family and friends a safe and healthy new year.

I'm having trouble finding the cookies you used in this recipe. Could you offer a substitute or let me know a brand name of the cookie you used, please? I'm anxious to try this recipe, but want it to be right. Thank you!
