Peanut Butter Pie

My son wasn't feeling the best this weekend so we stayed home. I knew the moment he was feeling better because then he was so hungry. He decided he should have two breakfasts. I asked him if he was a hobbit and he was eating his second breakfast. He told me sure. Well, I wanted to make my husband something nice so I made some peanut butter pie. Of course he liked it but he was surprised it wasn't heavy. My daughter told me it reminded her of a peanut butter cheesecake. It does have cream cheese in it. This pie taste so good.
Peanut Butter Pie
2 cups Nilla wafer cookies, crushed
1/8 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
6 oz. light cream cheese, softened

1 cup powder sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup heavy cream
garnish: additional peanut butter and whip cream

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the crushed Nilla wafers, sugar, and the melted butter.
  3. Press the mixture into a pie crust.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes. 
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  6. In a large bowl, cream the cream cheese, powder sugar, and peanut butter until fluffy. 
  7. In a medium bowl, whisk the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  8. Fold the whip cream into the peanut butter mixture. 
  9. Pour the mixture into the cooled pie crust.
  10. Refrigerate the mixture for four hours.
  11. Garnish if desired, heat 1/2 cup peanut butter until liquid. Drizzle the melted peanut butter over top of the peanut butter pie.
