Nicholson's Farmhouse Peanut Butter Pie


Nicholson's Farmhouse Peanut Butter Pie

Nicholson's Farmhouse was located in Havana, Florida.  It was the homestead of Paul Nicholson.  They moved a number of old homes to the location.  One home was the kitchen and another was a gift shop.  One home was the main dining area and the other three or four homes were dining areas, too.  Their specialty was marinated steaks.  It became a very popular place for those attending FSU football games in Tallahassee.  Over the years, there were many parties celebrated there. 

I was so blessed to be given this recipe many years ago by Sandy, who made the pies for Nicholson's Farmhouse and other restaurants in Tallahassee.

Nicholson's Farmhouse Peanut Butter Pie is worthy of a blue ribbon and I guarantee your family will agree!  The recipe makes three pies, so you can share.....or not!
