Log Inn's Fluffy Peanut Butter Pie

Photo courtesy of the Cooking Corner.
   The Log Inn in Warrenton is recognized as the oldest restaurant in Indiana, built in 1825. It has been owned by the Elpers family for 3 generations. They serve home cooked, old-fashioned Midwestern, "Sunday dinner at Grandma's" food with a few German sides honoring the heritage of the local community.
   The rustic dining rooms are filled with long tables that seat many and the food is served in large bowls and platters that are refilled as needed. It's called family style dining. Even though the history is long and the setting is rustic, it's all about the food, the majority of it home made daily.
  Kathy Elpers, of the Log Inn, shared this special pie recipe with me. It's her Grandma Vic's, of course.
