Peanut Butter Pie in a Jar with an oatmeal crust - gluten free dessert recipe

Last Friday night we hosted a couple of friends for dinner. She maintains a gluten free diet, so when I was thinking about dessert {I’m always thinking about dessert}, I thought about my peanut butter cheesecake. For some reason I have been craving peanut butter a lot lately! I updated my recipe to make it more of a pie, with a gluten free crust. It was fabulous, if I do say so myself. Rather than cut and plate the pie while they anxiously await, I served the peanut butter pie in a jar. I keep weck jars on hand for gifting, picnics, and of course, desserts!

Chris’ favorite part was the crust. It’s slightly unexpected and the perfect compliment to the rich, creamy pie.
