Have ya'll checked out Katie's blog? Did you know it is called "I like Pi?" Well, not only does she have an affinity for mathematical concepts. But she also likes pie. All kinds of pie. And Katie is quite happy to tell you. Or anyone. How much she likes pie.
She says Pi instead of "hi." And when she went to a girl scout lock-in on her actual birthday. She turned down the opportunity to take cake. Or cupcakes. Because they were not pie.
So...naturally for her birthday celebration. We had pie. Peanut butter pie.
A lot of people have peanut butter pie recipes. But this one is a smidge different. Because it adds a layer of chocolate.
Here are our ingredients.
The first thing to do is to add the chocolate shell to the graham cracker crust.And then freeze.
Mix together 2 blocks of softened cream cheese and a box of confectioners sugar.
Add a cup of creamy peanut butter.
And then mix in two containers of cool whip.
Take your frozen shells out of the freezer. And add your peanut butter mixture.Freeze for about an hour, and then put in the fridge.
You can add chocolate shavings. Crushed peanut butter cups. Or you can
be a slacker and forget to add toppings serve it plain.
And singing. Are optional.
Here is our simple recipe.
2 graham cracker crusts
2 8oz blocks of cream cheese, softened
1lb box of confectioners sugar
Chocolate - magic shell
1 cup peanut butter (we use creamy - but crunchy would work)
16oz cool whip
Put a layer of magic shell on both of pie crusts. Freeze for about an hour.
Cream together the cream cheese and confectioners sugar.
Add the peanut butter.
And then the cool whip.
Divide between the pie crusts.
Add any toppings desired (chocolate shavings, cool whip, peanut butter cup crumbles) and then freeeze for an hour. Keep refrigerated.
