Simple Peanut Butter Pie...


Today is the middle boy's birthday

We are doing the cake on Friday for his party so today we just made a simple little pie that you can whip up in about 15 minutes and refrigerate.

Pie Crust...


You need 24 graham cracker squares
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter

I put the graham crackers into a food processer or blender and process until fine crumbs. Then I add the sugar and butter and combine. It will still be very crumbly. You put it into the pie pan and press the bottom and up along the sides until it is evenly distributed. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 12 minutes and then remove and cool.

While it is cooling you can make the pie filling.

Ingredients include...

To food processor add:

* 8 ounces cream cheese
* 1 cup powdered sugar
* 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
* 6 Tablespoons milk (I used almond milk)
* 8 ounces whipped topping
* chocolate chips (optional)
* chopped peanuts for topping (also optional)

Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, peanut butter, and milk in processor and blend until smooth. Fold in topping (I use a separate mixing bowl and not the food processor to do this). Spoon into baked crust. I also put some chips into the pie and some on top. Garnish as you like with chocolate chips and/or peanuts. Refrigerate until firm.



Here is the finished pie


Two being refrigerated for tonight. YUM!!!
