I really wanted to make a pie for Pi Day. The challenge was that between my commitments of the day, I only had an hour and 45 minutes to make a pie and that includes making a trip to the grocery store.
I as going to make the triple berry tart that I had made for Aaron’s dinner party, but thought that it needed to be a pie, not a tart. I decided on a no-bake pie. When I ran across Pioneer Woman’s chocolate peanut butter pie, I knew it was the winner.
- one chocolate Oreo pie crust(she made her own, but remember my time constraint)
- one 8 oz package of whipped cream cheese
- one 8 oz tub of Cool Whip, thawed
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- Magic Shell topping, optional
Mix together cream cheese and peanut butter.
Once combined, add in powdered sugar and mix on medium to high until fluffy.
Then, add in container of Cool Whip.
Mix until well combined. Scraping down the sides often.
Spread into crust and top with Magic Shell, if desired.
Chill for at least one hour before serving. This pie is so smooth, creamy and decadent. You wouldn’t guess what it was so simple to make.
Happy Pi Day!
