Peanut-butter Pie

Have you ever tasted something SO delicious that you wanted to simply eat the entire thing until it was gone (then make another one and hit “repeat”)?? Well this recipe WILL have that effect on you if you’re not careful! *You’ve been warned!* Its also one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make, so if you’re a fan of peanut butter and chocolate, then this recipe is for you!

Ingredients:

2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 Cup Creamy Peanutbutter
1 Instant Vanilla Pudding Box
2 Cups Milk
23 Oreo’s
2 TBSP Butter
1 Container Cool Whip

Directions for the crust:

Put all the oreos in a ziplock bag and crush them up with a rolling pin (they dont have to be powdered by any means – some bigger pieces are ok). Then melt your butter and put that into the bag with the oreos and just shake/mix it inside the bag until its covered the mixture. Then lay your crumbs into a pie crust and bake it for about 10 minutes on 350. LET COOL COMPLETELY before adding the pie fillings.

* We have also had this pie with a regular pie crust (cooked as the box calls for, then cooled completely before adding the pie filling) and its amazing as well. So if the oreo crust is too rich for you then try just a regular crust.

Directions for the pie filling:

First mix your pudding and milk up as the box calls for to make regular vanilla pudding (chill for 5 minutes after mixing it up). Then in a new bowl add your peanutbutter and powdered sugar to it, and then mix those two up with a fork until they thoroughly incorporate and make tiny little “balls” of peanutbutter.

Now all you have to do is layer! So put the peanutbutter mixture in the bottom of the crust, then add a few spoonfuls of the pudding on top of it and spread it to lay it over the entire peanutbutter mix. Then do another layer of peanutbutter, then another of pudding, and so forth until you use all of the mixtures (ending with the pudding on the top). I think I generally do about 3 layers worth of each mixture. You will fill that entire pie pan up to the top. Then chill the pie in the refrigerator overnight (thats the hardest part of this pie…not eating it right away)! The next day its ready to go and all you need to do is add the cool whip to the top!

*All credits for this pie go to my mother-in-law, Delores Stump!
