Peanut Butter Chocolate Mud Pie

Every year I asked my husband what dessert he wants for his birthday. Just about every year he says that same thing, your peanut butter pie. I started making this pie at least ten years ago. The recipe originally came out of a Debbie Fields cookbook from the early 1990’s. I have tweaked it a little bit over the years, but it is the same basic recipe.

Part of what makes this recipe so good is the crust. It is made out of peanut butter cookies. I always make my own, because I never buy store bought peanut butter cookies. You could use just a graham cracker crust, but like I said I think the peanut butter cookies are what make it so good.

Well, the cookies plus the cream and cream cheese. This is NOT a healthy recipe. This is not something I make all the time. But it is a great pie to make for a special treat.

This pie takes a while to chill so plan a head. The recipe has several steps.
