chocolate peanut butter pie

Another staff potluck party at Sarah's work, meant another dish to make this week. Seriously, they always seem to be having a potluck! What gives? But hey, let's get back on track, because it doesn't matter how many potlucks they have, I love 'em. Even if I'm not getting to eat, it means I get to unleash a cooking adventure on the world. I told you eating was the hard part!

Twice we've made Alton Browns Mac N' Cheese (conquering the 'main' side of things) to rave reviews, so I wondered about a dessert or appetizer. Dessert won out, and I set my brain to work. A few ideas were starting to float around, when I remembered a chocolate peanut butter pie concoction over at The Pioneer Woman. With Sarah hip to the plan, we headed over to Superstore to retrieve our goods; butter, Oreos, cream cheese, cool whip, peanut butter, and icing sugar. I bet you're salivating already. In honor of Ree and her shot by shot blog method. I'm going to attempt a reenactment.

First the Oreo's get crushed up, yes, even the white parts. Use a food processor if you can.

Then mix in the melted butter; because chocolate, butter, and Oreo cream is heavenly.

Press the mixture into a pie plate, while trying not to eat any of course.

See, it looks good enough to eat.

Letting the crust bake for 7 minutes in a 350 oven, gives you enough time to put together the filling.

A cup of delicious peanut butter.

And 8 ounces of cream cheese.

Get blended together.

Once combined, start mixing in the icing sugar (1 1/2 cups). Be careful of the icing powder spray.

Then start on the 8 ounces of cool whip.

Continue mixing until everything comes together into creamy goodness.

Now go get your pie crust from the oven and don't burn yourself.

Pour everything into the Oreo crust.

Now smooth your pie-top with a knife (or a rice paddle) and cool.

Oh why not add a few more of those delicious, thigh bulging Oreo's. I mean we've gone this far already.

Seriously. Make this recipe.
