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!
