Reese's Peanut Butter Pie for Two

Ingredients:


1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (I use Annie's Bunny Grahams for this)
1 tablespoon salted butter, melted
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon sugar substitute (I use https://www.wheylow.com/ for my sugar substitute) 
3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2 ounces cream cheese softened
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
Chopped up Reese's Peanut Butter Cups or Minis for garnish

Instructions:


Heat oven to 350° F.
Pour graham cracker crumbs into a small bowl and stir in melted butter.
Butter or spray the bottom and sides of an 8.5 ounce ramekin or baking dish of similar size with oil spray and pour the crumbs into the dish. Using your fingers, the bottom of a drinking glass or the back of a spoon, press the crumbs gently so they form a crust on the bottom.
Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes. 
Remove from the oven and set aside.
Pour the cream and sugar into a small bowl and whip at high speed using a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whip together the peanut butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar.
Gently fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture with a spatula until completely blended. Spoon into the cooled ramekin and smooth out the top. Place the pie in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until ready to eat. Top with your favorite garnish, peanut butter style!

Gluten Free Cornbread for Two

My husband is not keen on cornbread, he'll eat it once in a while but not a lot. I grew up with the old southern cornbread eaten at every meal, literally. So I was so happy to run across this recipe and to be able to convert it to gluten free without any problems. I've made my mini skillet of cornbread many times but always seem to make a little too much! This was prefect! 

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons salted butter , melted
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon plain (not cornmeal mix) yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour (I use Pillsbury Gluten Free)
  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Let skillet if using one get hot. This makes for a crispier crust.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the melted butter, milk, and egg until well blended.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • Add the liquid mixture to the cornmeal mixture and stir just until the flour is moistened.
  • Pour batter into small greased pan (I used a mini cast iron skillet) and spread evenly. 
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm.

Thant's all friends and it is so good, a little crunchy on the top just the way I like it.
