peanut butter pie

I love that when people are sick, have loved ones that pass away, or have babies, our church always provides them with meals for a few weeks. Recently, I made this pie for just that reason, and I had forgotten how amazing it really is. I got this recipe from my friend Jennifer, who I believe combined two recipes-- one of which is the Pioneer Woman's.

It's a really simple pie to make, and it's really easy if you go the simple route and buy the Oreo crust pre-made. I always like to make mine, but I am sure the store-bought one is just as good.

Peanut Butter Pie

Preheat oven to 350 degrees for crust.

Ingredients:
Crust
25 whole Oreos
4 T. butter, melted

Filling
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1- 8 oz. package softened cream cheese
1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 can condensed milk
8 oz. Cool Whip

Preparation:
Crust
Crush the Oreos until they are fine crumbs (I put mine in the food processor).
Pour melted butter over the top, and stir with a fork to combine.
Press into pie pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 5-7 minutes or until set.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Filling
Beat peanut butter, condensed milk, powdered sugar and cream cheese in a mixer until smooth.
Add in the Cool Whip and beat until smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.
Pour filling into crust, evening out the top.
Chill for at least one hour before serving.
