My friend Jodi came over to hang out and have dinner with us a few nights back. I cooked, but nothing too special, I just threw some chicken on the grill with rice and veggies on the side. I don't usually experiment on guests and I hate to spend a lot of time in the kitchen when they are here, so I decided simple was best. But, I talk so much about my cooking to my friends, that I felt that just a simple grilled chicken just wasn't enough....so I made this pie. This heaven in a pie plate pie. This lusciously, scrumptiously, ever so evil pie. This..this...this... Peanut Butter Cup Pie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Personally, I'm going to have to say that this is now my favorite pie... well except for apple pie, for some reason that will always be my favorite. And talk about simple... I threw this together in about 5 minutes and that is no lie. Granted, if you made everything from scratch, it would take much longer, but some times simple and easy is the best way to go.
