Everyone Loves Pie {Week 21}

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie.

I’m warning you. This one is good, but oh boy, it’s really rich. Don’t attempt to eat it on your own – make sure you have plenty of people to share it with!

On Sunday afternoon I whipped up this pie in my mom’s kitchen for a spur-of-the moment family dinner. It requires minimal baking, and just a few ingredients, which makes it good for spontaneous gatherings. The recipe is one from the Pioneer Woman, and she KNOWS how to cook, so of course it is good! Take it easy, because it’s not good FOR you. But then again, most pies aren’t!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Crust Ingredients:

25 whole Oreos
4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
 

Filling Ingredients:

1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 package (8 Ounce) Softened Cream Cheese
1-1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
1 package (8 Ounce) Cool Whip, Thawed

Directions:

Crust:
Crush the Oreos until they’re fine crumbs. Pour melted butter over the top and stir with a fork to combine. Press into pie pan and bake at 350 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes, or until set. Remove the crust from oven and allow it to cool completely.

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