chocolate peanut butter pie

10.28.2009
I made this peanut butter pie recipe for my book club last weekend and it went over so well that it was gone before I remembered to take a picture. Luckily I found a similar recipe at the Pioneer Woman so you can get the idea of what it should look like (though apparently she had the same problem). I highly recommend it for a party... a total crowd pleaser, but a little goes a long way... it’s super indulgent!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Ingredients
-4 cups chocolate wafer cookies
-2 sticks butter, melted
-1 cup creamy peanut butter
-1 (8-ounce) package softened cream cheese
-1 cup powdered sugar
-1/2 can condensed milk
-8 ounces fresh whipped cream (or Cool Whip)
- garnish: crushed peanuts, chocolate shavings

Directions

Crust:
Crush the cookies in a food processor.
Pour melted butter over the top and stir with a fork to combine.
Press into pie or tart pan and bake at 350 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes, or until set.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Filling:
Beat the peanut butter, condensed milk, powdered sugar and cream cheese in a mixer until smooth.
Add in the whipped cream and beat until smooth, scraping the sides as needed.
Pour filling into crust, evening out the top with a knife or spatula.
Chill for at least an hour before serving.
