Peanut butter pie in a chocolate crumb crust. Need I say more?! This excellent recipe will get you invited to every picnic, Bar-B-Que and social for miles around.

Prepare the crust:
1-1/4 cups chocolate cookie crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter

Stir the cookie crumbs and sugar together in a medium bowl. Melt the butter and combine thoroughly with the cookie crumb and sugar mix. Press the mixture evenly across the bottom and up the side of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a rack to cool.

Prepare the filling:
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
Optional garnish ideas: shaved chocolate, additional cookie crumbs, cocoa powder

In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth. Gently fold in the whipped cream until well combined.

Assemble the pie:
Gently spoon the filling into the prepared crust. Garnish with shaved chocolate, cookie crumbs or dust with cocoa powder.

Yield: 8 – 10 servings.

Lightly cover leftovers (yeah, right!) and store in the refrigerator.
