Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 1/4 Cup Do-Si-Do cookies crushed
  • 5 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar

For the pie:

  • 8 Ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 3/4 Cups confectioners’ sugar, plus 2 tablespoons divided
  • 3/4 Cups creamy peanut butter, at room temperature
  • 1 Cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Cup fudge sauce

Directions

For the crust:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the cookie crumbs, melted butter, and sugar in a bowl. Mix to combine. Then, press the cookie mixture evenly into a 9-inch pie pan.

Bake until firm, about 5 minutes. Set aside while you make the filling.

For the pie:

Combine the cream cheese, ¾ cup confectioners’ sugar, and creamy peanut butter in a bowl. Beat with a hand mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Whip the cream with the remaining confectioners’ sugar and vanilla extract to stiff peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter and cream cheese mixture. Spread evenly in the cooled pie shell, and freeze for at least 4 hours. Drizzle chocolate fudge sauce over the pie before slicing and serving.

Peanut Butter Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peanut Butter Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
