Pie Recipe

I am giving away one of my recipes from the family. It is so good, and I was reminded of that on Thanksgiving. I LOVE Peanut Pie and so does everyone that eats it, well you have to like the taste of peanut butter, but other than that...

The peanut butter taste doesn't over power the pie like you might think by the name. We used to get this pie at the Tale of a Whale Restaurant in the Outer Banks, when our family was small enough to all go out to dinner and have it be somewhat affordable. One year they had their recipe printed out for the patrons, we of course snatched it and it has been on every holiday dessert menu ever since.

You will need:

4 oz. cream cheese
1 cup 10x sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup milk
8 oz. container of cool whip
1- 9" graham cracker pie crust, you can make one of your own like I do, or purchase it from the store, just make sure when you are done baking the crust, cool it completely.
1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts

-whip cream cheese until soft and fluffy
-beat in sugar and peanut butter
-slowly blend in milk
-fold cool whip into the mixture
-pour into your pie shell
-sprinkle with the chopped peanuts
-freeze until firm, and serve

Variations obviously can be done, some ideas:

-Oreo or choc. pie crust instead graham cracker
-choc. can be added to the pie mixture itself, I prefer to drizzle it on top, to get that choc. and peanut butter mixture going on.
-you can top with candy instead of peanuts

Its so yummylicious, make one tonight!
