Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie

Who doesn’t love a Reesa cup as I call them. LOL. I mean when Chocolate & Peanut Butter are joined together in the mist; What a combination. And this dessert is no exception. Just picture a Oreo cookie crust, smooth peanut butter filling, fresh whipped topping and loads of  chopped Reese’s cups on top. Oh Baby!

Ingredients

Filling
1 Oreo cookie pie crust
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup heavy cream

Whipped Cream Topping (for garnish)
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

ganache or chocolate ice cream topping for garnish
Mini Reese’s peanut butter cups for garnish

Instructions

In a mixer, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth and airy. Now in a separate COLD bowl whip heavy cream until it hold soft peaks. (Be careful DO NOT over whip; It will turn into butter if you do). Next fold in the whipped heavy cream to the peanut butter mixture until fully incorporated. Spoon peanut butter mixture into crust and stripe with chocolate ganache or chocolate ice cream topping. Refrigerate pie until set.

Now it is time to make the topping for garnish. In a separate COLD bowl whip heavy cream until almost stiff. Add sugar and vanilla; beat until cream holds peaks. (Again DO NOT over whip because it will turn into butter). Decorate pie with whipped cream and roughly chopped peanut butter cups. Mmmmmm…..

*Chef’s Note – If you want a more lower fat recipe just substitute the sugar with splenda, and the cream cheese with reduced fat cream cheese.
