This week, I didn't actually use ice cream in the recipe - but we enjoyed a cold treat anyway!
Peanut Butter Pie
1 1/4 c. chocolate cookie crumbs (20 cookies)
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter or margarine, melted
*Or, you can substitute one purchased chocolate cookie crust.
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1 T. butter or margarine, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. heavy cream, whipped
Grated chocolate or cookie crumbs, optional
Combine crust ingredients and press into a 9" pie plate. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. (If using a purchased crust - you can skip this step.) Cool. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Spoon into crust. Garnish as desired - I used sprinkles. Refrigerate.
