Ingredients

  • 1 baked single pie crust (9-inch) or make the dough it from scratch
  • 3 Tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1/4 Cup milk
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 1 Cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup of smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 Cup sugar

For the ganache glaze:

  • 1/2 Cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 Cup heavy cream
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter

Directions

In an electric mixer, beat all of your ingredients except the cream on high speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.

In a separate bowl, beat  the cream until you form stiff peaks, around 5 minutes. Fold your whipped cream into the mixture and pour everything into the pie crust.

Cover in plastic wrap and  freeze overnight.

For the ganache glaze:

The following day, remove your pie from the freezer and let it defrost for about 2 hours. Remove plastic from pie.

In a small saucepan, bring the cream and butter to a boil and then slowly fold in your chocolate on a low heat. 

Spread the chocolate over the pie and chill in the refrigerator until set.
