My homemade peanut butter pie recipe is the bomb. Rich, creamy and so decadent; it's like heaven on a fork.
Oreo pie crust, recipe below
homemade chocolate sauce, garnish
In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and peanut butter until smooth and light. Fold in the whipped topping. Coarsely chop half of the peanut butter cups; stir into cream cheese mixture.
Spoon into crust. Quarter remaining peanut butter cups; arrange over top. Drizzle melted chocolate or chocolate sauce over all. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before cutting. Refrigerate leftovers.
Cooking For A Crowd?
Double the recipe and put it in a 9x13 pan with a homemade graham cracker crust.
Crush the peanut butter cups and mixed them all into the filling. When serving top with whip cream and a chocolate drizzle. You will be famous for this recipe. Seriously.
You can also use peanut butter cream cookies; crushed. Just awesome, I might add (I like it better). When you make your own whipped cream and fold in it the filling - it tastes just like light cream cheese frosting.
OREO Cookie Crust
1-1/2 cups Oreo cookies, finely crushed (blender)
3 TBS butter, melted
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.
To make the crust, combine the crushed cookies and melted butter together in a bowl and mix well. Spray the pie plate with vegetable oil and using your fingers, press mixture into the bottom of your pie plate. Bake for 5 minutes and cool completely before filling.
