PEANUT BUTTER PIE WITH CHOCOLATE CRUST

Mary Mac's Tea Room
by John Ferrell

This is one of our most popular desserts, no doubt because of the chocolate-cookie crust. If you liked Oreos as a kid, you'll love this grown-up pie.
Serves 8 to 10


INGREDIENTS

    • 5 cups crushed chocolate creme-filled cookies
    • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
    • 1¾ cups sugar
    • 4 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
    • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
    • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1 1/3 cups heavy cream
    • Whipped cream, for garnish


DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 300°F. Butter a 9-inch pie plate. Combine the crushed cookies and the melted butter until thoroughly blended; press evenly in the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate.

In the work bowl of a stand mixer, place the sugar and add the cream cheese and peanut butter. With the whisk attachment, on low speed, beat until flurry and well blended. Add the vanilla and egg yolk and mix well. With the mixer running, slowly add the heavy cream and beat until blended. Pour the batter into the pie shell. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Chill before serving.
Garnish with
whipped cream.
