Last Saturday I had company. Earlier in the week, when I invited said company I decided to make pizza for um...him, and Mom said it would be good to make these peanut butter pies. More on said company sometime...later :)
Anyway, we love peanut butter pies. My grandma used to make these, and I'm not even sure how long ago that's been. We don't make them that often, because this recipe makes four pies, and if we have that much dessert around...well, we eat it. But my company was special and so peanut butter pie it was. He liked it. :D
This isn't health food at all. It's like, the opposite of health food. (junk food, FYI) I usually get four graham cracker crusts, but I wanted to use the little individual crusts...they were so cute!
So here's what you'll need:
I told you it was junk food. You're supposed to have half a gallon of vanilla ice cream, 16 ounces of Cool Whip, and 16 ounces of chunky peanut butter. I didn't have the recipe with me at Walmart and didn't think about the fact that Breyer's is cheesy and cut their containters to only hold 1.5 gallons. I already had the peanut butter on hand, so this is an enormous container. You need either four regular crusts, or 24 small ones.
So first off, the ice cream needs to be soft and the Cool Whip needs to be thawed. Dump the melty ice cream into a large bowl.
Mix in the peanut butter. I just measured out 2 cups. Hehe...yeah, just 2 cups.
Blend it up well...
Add the Cool Whip. I hate Cool Whip. I really do. It's so...fake and chemically. Bleh.
Mix that up well.
Now, you can either scoop this into four graham cracker crusts, or do like I did and use 24 small ones. I just spooned spoonfuls into the crusts, controlling the spoonfuls with my finger. Hah. It was at this time that I got frostbite on my finger.
Now, we always serve our frozen peanut butter pie with Hershey's syrup. It's just what we do. However, I completely forgot to get pictures of the syrup on the pies. I was otherwise eng...I mean, occupied. Take my word for it...we put chocolate syrup on top of our pie.
I was able to take a small fork and work the pies out of their little tin shell thingy, so it worked out really well to have individual ones!
It's yummy. I'm sure you'll love it!
I hope y'all are having a great week! :)
