This one is a keeper! Peanut butter whipped up with cream cheese, whipped cream and icing sugar - poured into a cookie crust and topped with any and all drizzles, candies, and cookies! Yup...you're going to like this one.
It's a no-bake pie that starts with a cookie crust you can make yourself by grinding Oreos - including the icing -or using Oreos crumbs, or any other traditional graham or cookie crust will work here. Homemade or pre-made from the store...super easy.
The hardest part is waiting for the creamy pie to gel in the fridge so it can slice nice and firm. The addition of icing sugar to the whipped cream filling helps stabilize the filling, as does making sure the pie has a few hours...or better yet...over night to firm up in the fridge.
One of my taste-testers told me it was the best dessert I've ever made! Lol...considering how many goodies I constantly make my friends eat...that is saying a lot!
Give this recipe a try and let me know how you like it! And if you want to make a larger pie...just times it by 1.5 and make a nice big 9.5 inch instead.
