I can’t believe that I am saying this, but I am so ready for fall. You guys are probably well aware that fall is my favorite season, but I typically don’t find myself wishing away summer this early.
I mean, it’s only August 15th. But it has been SO hot. I’m talking not wanting to leave the house, sweat off your makeup in 10 minutes hot. And if you know me at all, you know I hate being hot unless I’m lounging by a pool, fruity drink in hand.
Needless to say, I haven’t been baking much at all. We’ve been opting for fresh fruit and ice cream for dessert on most days – until I got a serious craving for peanut butter pie.
When I was 15, I worked at a family-owned diner that made a killer peanut butter pie, and I’ve always wanted to try to replicate it at home. Last week, I made three versions of this pie and I must say, I think I nailed it.
Except this one might be a tad bit better because it has a cookie crust instead of a traditional pie crust.
This peanut butter pie is super easy to make and the filling only requires a a handful of ingredients: creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar, heavy cream, vanilla and tangy Challenge Cream Cheese.
I made this pie using Challenge Dairy butter and cream cheese. I love working with their products because they’re made the old fashioned way, from the freshest milk and cream from happy cows at local dairies.
They’re the only dairy product company that controls the whole process from milking the cows, to transporting milk, to making the butter, to packaging. You gotta love that!
Whip this peanut butter pie up for a special occasion or on a Monday afternoon – it’s that easy. And I promise you’ll love be eating the light, fluffy filling right off of a spoon.
A dollop of whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate sauce and mini peanut butter cups make it even more amazing!
