Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie Recipe

Our tradition of family desserts during large holiday meals is to bake a few different pies and line them up on the kitchen island like a pie buffet.

This chocolate and peanut butter pie is a great dessert for large holiday dinners as it is so simple to prepare.

Even these pretty chocolate curls on top are quite easy to make, but they certainly add a special touch.

The crust of this peanut butter chocolate pie was made using OREO peanut butter cookies.

Honestly, I don't know if Peanut Butter OREOs are available all year round, and if you can't find them, regular OREO cookies will work just as well.

I LOVE pies made with an OREO crust. There's just something so delicious that reminds me of the desserts I ate when I was a kid, and it's also a good change from traditional graham cracker crusts.

As much as I love this OREO pie crust, I want to share a little secret with you.

If you don't have time to make your own crust, you can absolutely use a store-bought pie crust and follow the rest of the recipe for topping and topping! I want to save time and I even made it once or twice with this recipe myself.

ingredients

For the dough

For the pie

1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream cheese, softened

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup caster sugar

1 container (8 oz.) Whipped topping, thawed

For the chocolate curls

1 ounce semi-sweet baking chocolate

1 teaspoon Crisco

Instructions

For the dough
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Add the cookies to a food processor and mix until fine crumbs form. Add the butter and mix until well blended. Dump the mixture into a 9-inch pie pan. Press firmly at the bottom and on the sides. Bake at 350 for 6 to 7 minutes. Put aside.
For the pie filling
In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and peanut butter until blended and homogeneous. Add the powdered sugar and beat until well blended. Gently fold in 1 ½ cups of whipped topping until well combined.
Pour into the cooled crust and spread evenly. Spread the remaining whipped topping evenly over the filling.
For the chocolate curls
In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate and crisco at 30-second intervals and stir until well blended. Pour over the back of a metal pan, I used a 9 x 9 inch square pan. Spread very thin, I covered the whole pan. Put in the freezer for 3 minutes. Using a spatula pushing forward, scrape the curls forming the chocolate.
Sprinkle the curls evenly over the top of the pie. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
