Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
I saw Ree Drummond make this on the Food Network and knew I had to have it. I knew my daughter would drool over it just seeing the recipe. We finally tried it over the weekend.
So, here's the simple recipe (click here) to see the original.
25 whole Oreos
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup creamy peanut butter
One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1-1/4 cups powdered sugar
One 8-ounce package Cool Whip, thawed
First preheat the oven to 350 degrees for baking the crust.
Put the cookies in a zip top baggie and crush by pounding them. This is the fun part! Take out all your aggression on those poor Oreos. :)
Mix with the melted butter and press into a pie plate. Bake for 5-7 minutes. Then let cool completely. This is pure torture. It smells so good you want to eat the crust by itself!
Now beat the peanut butter with the cream cheese. Then add in the powdered sugar. Watch out and do slowly, or you'll get a dusting!
Add in the Cool Whip, beat until smooth, scraping as needed (you'll need to).
Pour into the crust. Make it pretty by smoothing it or swirling it on top. Then chill in fridge for an hour (another LONG hour to wait).
Slice and serve. It's so rich, you don't need huge slices. Which will make it last longer. :) This has kept nicely for several days in the fridge.
Silky, silky pie! Reminds me of French Silk pie. You're going to love it.
Oh! My new cover for my October book, The Guy Next Door, is now up! And the book is available for pre-order. I'm so excited! It's been quite a while since I had a new book. :)
