Maybe this will fill the bill! icon_biggrin.gif

I found a recipe that I tweaked to make it just like the Perkin's Peanut Butter Silk Pie. It's from "PILLSBURY THE COMPLETE BOOK OF BAKING". All I did was add a layer of ganache before I added the peanut butter filling.

Regular Pie crust

2 eggs, separated, at room temperature
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup dark corn syrup
1 (5 oz.) can (2/3 cup) evaporated milk or milk
1 tsp vanilla

Prepare pastry for Filled one-crust pie using a 9-inch pie pan.

Pour a layer of ganache into crust. (Make the ganache a bit thicker than you normally would use.)

Heat oven to 350. In small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. In large bowl, beat egg yolks and brown sugar until mixture is light in color and thickened. Blend in peanut butter and corn syrup. Gradually beat in milk and vanilla. Fold egg whites into peanut butter mixture. Pour into pastry lined pan.

Oven: 350 F for 30 to 35 minutes or until filling is set. 8 to 10 servings.
Nutrition per serving: calories 320, protein 9 gr, fat 18 gr, sodium 240mg. Adding the ganache will alter these numbers, however.
