My first pie in the new Dream Pie series was a Chocolate Peanut Butter Dream Pie because let's face it, there's not much better in life than the delicious combination of chocolate and peanut butter!
Here's what you need:
For the crust:
25 Oreo cookies
1/3 cup butter melted
For the filling:
8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup peanut butter (I use Skippy, creamy)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
8 or 16 oz container Cool Whip (I used 3/4 of a 16 oz. and will use the whole tub next time)
In a food processor crush up the cookies until they are a fine sand texture. Don't worry about the filling it just kind of disappears. Add the melted butter and stir until it resembles wet sand.
Press the cookie mixture tightly into a 9 inch pie plate, making sure to go all the way up the sides.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
After the crust has chilled, in a medium bowl beat cream cheese, peanut butter, and brown sugar until smooth.
Add Cool whip and mix until completely incorporated and smooth.
Optional - Place a large dollop of Cool Whip in center of pie before slicing.
Serves 8 - 10
