Dessert: Peanut Butter Pie
My husband has been asking me for months to try and make him a peanut butter pie. To be honest, I love pie- but I really don't make it very much at all. I think I have made 3 pies in my lifetime, this being one of them!!
My husband is a super picky peanut butter dessert guy, so when he said it was awesome and ate 3/4 of the pie himself.... I guess that means it is pretty stinkin' good! And did I mention it is SUPER EASY to make?!?
Here is what you need:
1 8oz package of cream cheese-softened, 1 cup white sugar, 1 cup peanut butter, 1 8oz containers whipped cream, thawed, 1 9 inch pie shell- baked (I used graham cracker pie crust instead), 1 TB, softened butter, 1 tsp. vanilla extract
In a Mixing bowl, whip butter and sugar until blended.
Add your peanut butter (don't you love the handy dandy measuring tool from Pampered Chef! It is so easy to use w/ peanut butter!), cream cheese, and vanilla...
Add your thawed out whipped cream and fold into the mixture.
Pour into your crust. Let Refrigerate at least 1 hour and then enjoy!
There are a number of toppings you could add if you wish... chocolate shavings, chocolate cookie crumbs, chocolate peanut butter cups, chocolate syrup.... the list goes on!
