I’m not even a dessert person… I mean it.
But this pie?! It’s too good. So good, that I honestly may not be able to make it ever again. That might be slightly agressive, but seriously I wouldn’t suggest you make this pie unless there are plenty of people around to help you eat it.
Thankfully, we made it with the plan of bringing it to a friendsgiving get together. Our pals seemed to pretty much love it and exclaimed things like “this isn’t even right” and “shut up!” and “this is silly good” as they ate it.
After seeing a hefty amount of friends and neighbors enjoying it, I thought I’d go ahead and share this recipe with ya’ll. Might be a good one for the holidays! If not holidays, it’s a “cheat day” sort of thing, for sure.
Ingredients ‘n thangs:
Fo’ the crust:
- 20 Oreos
- 24 Mini Peanut Butter Cups
- 1/2 Stick Unsalted Butter (Melted)
Fo’ the pie:
- 2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 3/4 Cups Chunky Peanut Butter
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- One 8 oz. Package of Cream Cheese
- 1 3/4 Cups Powdered Sugar (divided)
- Peanuts/Extra Peanut Butter Cups/Chocolate Sauce – For topping the pie
Start by adding your cream into mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer until you can see the cream start to thicken. Slowly add 1 Cup of Powdered Sugar and Vanilla. Whip until cream has steep peaks. Place into the refrigerator.
Next make the crust. In the food processor combine the oreos and the peanut butter cups. Process until combined and then slowly pour the butter into the mixture. Place it into your 9″ pie pan and press into the bottom and sides of the pan with your hands to form the crust. Place this in the freezer while you put together your pie filling.
In the mixer, combine cream cheese and 3/4 cups powdered sugar until creamy. Add peanut butter and mix well. Fold in 1/2 of your whipped cream until fully mixed. Pour peanut butter mixture into pie crust and smooth the top with spoon/spatula. Spread the remaining whipped cream on top and then sprinkle with your choice of toppings. I quartered some extra peanut butter cups and added some peanuts, chocolate sauce and grated chocolate.
Voila! Store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve. This pie is really rich ya’ll. Cut small pieces – just trust me on this one!
Also… I ended up with extra pie filling and whipped cream. I didn’t want to waste, so I made some mini pies using cupcake wrappers and a cupcake tin. I placed an oreo in the bottom of the cupcake wrapper then added a plop of peanut butter filling and some whipped cream. Our neighbors loved ’em!
That’s it folks… Pretty easy. Really good. Go on and get down with this pie, would ya?!
