Peanut Butter Pie

Do any of you get that food magazine in your paper the first week of every month?  I do, and usually it's not worth much.  But last Wednesday, they had a recipe for Peanut Butter Pie.  And it was warm at the end of the week, so a cold dessert seemed like just something my boys would love.  OK, I confess.  They'd enjoy it any time, warm or cold.

PEANUT BUTTER PIE

1 Graham Cracker crust
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1-1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract

Beat together the cream cheese and confectioners sugar until smooth.  Add the remaining ingredients and beat until smooth.  Pour into the graham cracker crust (or a chocolate cookie crust, if you prefer), and freeze for 2 hours before serving.  Cut very small slices, because it's very filling!  Serve with or without whipped cream, as you prefer.

I have a feeling this will be on the "much requested" list this summer.  And it's so easy that I'll have a hard time not honoring such requests!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Now I know for sure I'll find some way to visit. I could live on peanut butter pie, though fortunately, that's never been an option.
