Mmmm…. this was so very good. I think that everyone should make one for a little snack tonight! Even Thomas aka “Mr. I don’t really like sweets” loved this. He ate a whole pie in 2 days. ‘Nough said.
Making this with the pre-made pie shells speeds things up and it is also a great dessert to send to someone who is sick or just had a baby. You won’t worry about getting the foil pie plate back and they won’t mind the treat!
Peanut Butter Pie
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened (I used light)
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup milk (I got crazy and used chocolate milk, SO good, but boring milk will suffice…)
8 oz. cool whip topping (I used light)
Prepared chocolate crust (1 if you like a thick pie, 2 if you like a thinner pie, I used 2)
Hershey’s chocolate bar for garnish, optional
In a medium mixing bowl cream (with a hand mixer) cream cheese and peanut butter together. Add milk and powdered sugar, beating until combine and fluffy. Fold in half the container of cool whip. Place whipped mixture into prepared pie crust. Top with remaining cool whip. For a garnish, use your vegetable peeler and made chocolate curls from the Hershey’s bar. Cover pie and freeze for at least 2 hours. When ready to serve, cut and do so, don’t thaw first.
I had prepared crusts on hand, but if you don’t, make one… You could also put this in a graham cracker crust.
