Several food bloggers posted peanut butter pies in honor of a food bloggers husband who passed away unexpectantly. I had never made a peanut butter pie before, but decided to give one a try. I went to the Pioneer Woman's website and made her version which was so quick and easy. It is very rich so be sure to cut the slices small.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
25 oreos - crushed
4 TBSP butter, melted
1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 package of softened cream cheese
1 1/4 cup powedered sugar
1 package (8oz) Cool Whip, Thawed
Combine the crushed oreos and butter. Press into pie pan and bake at 350 for 5 to 7 minutes, or until set. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
Beat the peanut butter with the cream cheese until smooth. Add 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.
