No matter what this dessert is technically called, if you happen to love peanut butter, you will call it delicious.
And, you are going to be a very important cook at your house if you prepare this lip-smacking peanut butter dessert!
By the way, I included the video transcript in case you would rather read than watch. Go below to see it…
Nothing As Yummy As The Pioneer Woman’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie!
The Pioneer Woman’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is hardcore joy for the serious dessert-lover.
Todd loves sweets and this is one seriously sweet pie. He also loves chocolate peanut butter, so this pie covers all the bases.
I also love this pie for all of the aforementioned reasons. But, I also love it because it begins with a chocolate cookie crust.
Pulsated Chocolate Cookies & Butter!
I’m gonna melt four tablespoons of butter in the saucepan and then grind up the cookies. I have exactly 25 chocolate sandwich cookies and I’m just gonna pulse these up.
Don’t worry about the creamy filling because it just totally disappears and becomes part of the crumbs.
Now, the butter is melted and I’ll just drizzle it in. Butter and chocolate cookies! Life doesn’t get any better than that!
And, then I’ll just give it a couple of pulses just to moisten up the crumbs and that is it.
Don’t Be Afraid to Use Those Hands!
Very, very uncomplicated and that’s one of the things I love about this pie. Now, I will make a big mess as I pour the crumbs into the pie pan.
Then the easiest way to get it in is just use your hands and start pressing the center.
You want the crust to be pretty packed in there, so then later when you slice the pie the crust will stay together.
Another thing I love about this crust is that it’s a refrigerator pie and it doesn’t have to bake I’m just gonna stick the crust in a 350 degree oven for about five or seven minutes just to get it set.
Preparing the Yummy Peanut Butter Filling!
The filling begins with a cup of creamy peanut butter and I’m just gonna eyeball it. I don’t want to go through the effort of measuring it into the cup and then scraping it out of the cup.
So, if I get a little more or less it won’t hurt anything.
Then I’ve got an 8 ounce package of softened cream cheese I’ll throw in there. I’ll just whip this up for a sec n a yummy yummy mixture.
Now, to this mixture I’ll add a cup and 1/4 of powdered sugar and the final ingredient, frozen non-dairy whipped topping.
Whip! Chill! Serve!
I’ve been thawing it, so it’s nice and soft. Of course, you can use regular whipped cream, but it just won’t come out with the same consistency as this stuff.
Okay absolutely perfect! Now, I’m just gonna put this into the cooled crust.
I tell you if you love peanut butter, this is your dessert. The whole kitchen smells like peanut butter right now.
Then, I’ll just spread it around, look at that. Isn’t that gorgeous? And,that is all there is to it. Now, it just needs to sit in the fridge for a couple of hours until it’s set.
25 whole chocolate sandwich cookies, such as Oreos
4 tablespoons butter, melted
