Amy Long is coming for dessert on Sunday night and upon her request (upon my asking), I made something peanut-buttery.
I went searching online for a peanut butter pie recipe and found one that received raving reviews. And, as usual, I added my own special touches.
T's Peanut Butter Pie
Chocolate Crumb Crust: (pay a little more, but please, make your own crust - it's easy!)
1 1/2 Cups of Chocolate wafers, crushed into crumbs
1/4 Cup of unsalted butter, melted
Mix the two together and then spread into your pie pan, pressing down on bottom and sides. Bake for 6 minutes in preheated oven at 325. Remove and allow to cool completely.
Peanut Butter Filling:
8 ounces of cream cheese
2/3 Cup of Creamy peanut butter
2 Cups of Powdered sugar
1- 8 ounce container of cool whip
Beat together the cream cheese, peanut butter and powdered sugar. At first it will be clumpy but it will get smooth fairly quickly. Fold in the cool whip. Spoon into cooled pie crust and enjoy licking the bowl of the leftover mixture...it's delicious!
Crumble approximately 5 Nutter Butters and mix with some of the leftover chocolate wafer crumbs (if you have any). Sprinkle on top.
Put your peanut butter pie in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to set.
