Peanut Butter Boston Cream Pie

For Father's Day, I wanted to make something I knew my husband would love, a repeat recipe! LOL So, that meant I had to try my hand at baking again.  His favorites are peanut butter and chocolate, so when I saw this on Happy Valley Chow's link party, I knew I had to make it.  It is from the site Baking a Moment.  Now a baker, I am not.  I make a mean sauce, and can cook meals, but breads, cakes, anything that requires a batter or a dough, I am like a fish out of water.  Now I think it came out pretty good, but it didn't look half as good (or most likely taste as wonderful) as the original poster's pie.  That is all on me, but even with my floundering, the end result was good.  The PB pastry cream, outta sight!  The Granache was perfect too, but my genoise was a little dry and I mangled it on the cutting but again, those pesky batters are my nemesis.  Perhaps if I was a huge fan of sweet, I would try to master it, but I will take a salty dish over a sweet one every time.  The rest of my family, all who have a sweet tooth, suffer;).
