Over the years, things change. Five years ago, I was making school bus-shaped cakes. Now, with kids in grades 5,7, and 9, deliciousness is prized over cute.
What’s universally yummy? Peanut butter cups, of course. And what’s more tasty than a peanut butter cup pie?
I’d had this recipe on the “to make” pile for awhile, and this was the perfect time to pull it out.
Peanut Butter Cup Pie
Like most Kraft recipes, it’s easy to whip up. I try to make things from scratch whenever I can, as I figure it’s healthier and less expensive, but I must confess I ended up buying a ready-made Oreo crust rather than making one. I felt a little guilt for that, but then upon further thought I decided that there was no particular merit in creating a crust from Oreos rather than buying one ready-made :).
Basically, whip up the cold stuff and pour it into the crust.
Put the pie into the fridge, and save the bowls for hungry kids to lick out …
Let youngest daughter drizzle peanut butter over the top, and you’re done!
It was one yummy back to school treat (the “one” candle is for day one of school).
It was very similar to this Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Pie, which we like as well.
