A sinfully yummy dessert...........

Peanut Butter Pie

1 1/3 graham cracker crumbs
1/3 c. sugar
1 cube melted butter

Mix together and press into a 10" pie pan. Bake @350 for 10 minutes. Let cool

I don't have a 10" spring form pan so I used a regular pie tin and used almost all of the filling. Had some left over...........

12 oz cream cheese - softened
1 1/2 c. peanut butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. heavy whipping cream

Mix together all but cream. Whip cream til stiff peak forms. fold into peanut butter mix. Put into crust.
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
2 oz. bittersweet chocolate (broken into pieces)
1/2 t. butter
1 t. vanilla

Mix sugar and cream in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil. Stir frequently. Reduce heat and simmer for apx. 6 min. With a gas stove it take about a minute less.

Remove from heat. Add chocolate, butter, and vanilla. Stir together and pour carefully over peanut butter mix. Refrigerate 4 hours.


I think you could do this in a 8X8 pan as well and cut into squares. An entire piece of pie is a lot because it's so rich..........however, I did manage to eat my entire piece!
