CRUST: (I usually buy a pre-made chocolate crust, but here are directions if you want to make it from scratch)
1-1/4 cups chocolate cookie crumbs (Oreos)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 pkg. (8-oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 Tbs. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
GARNISHMENTS (optional): hot fudge, melted peanut butter, chopped peanuts, chocolate cookie crumbs
Combine crust ingredients; press into a 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Cool.
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Gently spoon into crust.
It looks way too plain without the garnishments! Garnish with hot fudge, melted peanut butter, chopped peanuts, or cookie crumbs. Refrigerate. Serves 8-10.
Note to self: Don't type up recipes for sinfully delicious desserts on an empty stomach. Must have chocolate now.
