Peanut Butter Cup Pie

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.

That looks gooooood! You took the calories out, right? YUM! I'll be over for dessert tonight :)

Jenn, I'm not a chocolate fan, so this isn't for me. But, you know what, I really prefer to make desserts I'm not going to eat myself! And everybody else in the world loves chocolate! You may have just saved what's left of my waistline! Love your photo of the wedge of pie. Looks very cooling on a warm day.

I bet it is worth everyone of those calories.

I do NOT need to know how to make this! LOL

Mary said...

I could really grow to love this one. I get weakkneed at the thought of chocolate and peanut butter on the same plate. This is worth every single calorie it contains. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

I love that pie! I wish I could take a bite of it right now. My friends know they are being experimented on when they come to my house for dinner. I am constantly writing a new cookbook. When they come over they act like a food critic. It is a lot of fun.

Don't know why, but I can't eat sweets very much. Give me a pack Reese's though and I might fall off the wagon.
