Oreos (I used DoubleStuf...is there really any other kind?)
1/2 stick butter or margarine
2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbsp milk
8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz whipped topping, thawed
toppings & garnishes, such as M&Ms, Reese's Pieces, cookies.....
Here's What You Do
Crush 20 Oreos (or more if not DoubleStuf) in either the processor, blender, or in a plastic bag with a rolling pin. Melt butter in the microwave; combine and blend. Pat crumb mixture onto bottom and sides of 9" pie plate. You can add more Oreos with a smidge more butter if you want a thicker crust. Place entire pie plate/ crust in freezer.
The other change I made was simply a result of the grocery store not having a single bag of Reese's Pieces in stock. Like, nowhere to be found. So I settled with peanut M&Ms, as if that could be settling... I LOVED the pop of color they added to the pie, and the extra crunch was just perfect! I also crunched up some chocolate peanut butter cookies and a chopped up a couple Reese's Peanut Butter Cups to add to the mix. So SO good! The pie is all gone now, and we miss it. So so sad. Next time I may add a hot fudge drizzle (we're not big fans of chocolate syrup), but of course the calorie count will probably double.
Adapted from this terrific recipe.
We were in the midst of such a heat wave this past weekend that we decided on a no-bake cake for the almost- birthday boy. This was the perfect solution! I think I'm on to something here...
I got some Coca-Cola glasses from the dollar store, and the smaller ones were .59 a piece. They looked really cute with the bright flowers.
See Caleb's foot pillow there? Poor thing.
It's the floor! It's the floor! No more nasty carpet! Hallelujah!
Although next up is the kitchen. That's a whole lotta tile to take up!
Now go make some Peanut Butter Pie! =)
