State Fair Winner Peanut Butter Cream Pie

“Originally titled Simon's PB Pie isn't heavy and has a subtle PB flavor. My 81 year old dad won 1st Place with this recipe in the Cream Pie division/State Fair of Texas, approx/1976. Sharing his sense of humor, I asked how he wanted to be recognized: He replied, "Master Chef Guillome Henri Gaston Siber. but I do respond to either "My Dad," or Bill Sybert." Recipe shared by Mae Murrell of Houston, Texas, many years ago.”
