These tarts are rich, creamy and a peanut butter lover’s dream. Making this recipe in smaller tart pans makes it easier to keep from over-indulging, but you can also make it as 1 large 9-inch pie that can later be cut into 12 small individual servings.
It will take slightly more than 1/2 of a 9-ounce box of Nestle’s Famous Chocolate Wafer cookies to make the crumbs for the crust of these tarts.
I use decarboxylated kief or hash to medicate this recipe. Learn more about Cooking with Hash and Kief at this link.
