This is one of those once a year kind of recipes, as in I would only trot this out once a year for a special treat because I’m pretty you shouldn’t eat a lot of instant pudding and nutter butters. This year I made it for my husband, his birthday is the day before my son’s birthday, which is two days before Valentines Day, which means I’m always crunched for time and this pie is super easy. Especially with getting presents shopped for, presents wrapped, parties planned, all applicable valentines made and signed and yeah by the time the birthdays hit I’m exhausted.
Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Pie
mix the cookie crumbs with the melted butter and press firmly into a pie pan
bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven and cool completely
while the crust is cooling open the peanut butter cups, break them slightly and set aside
when the crust is cooled pour the the pudding mix, the whipping cream and the milk into a bowl
whip on high until well combined, about 3-4 minutes
for the last minute of whipping add about 2/3 of the peanut butter crumbles
scoop the whipped pie filling into the cooled crust and top with the last of the crumbled peanut butter cups
chill at least 2 hours, if leaving it longer consider covering it with some plastic wrap to keep errant things from being knocked into it
Yep totally overly processed but also super easy, a time saver and a mind blower.
