Peanut Butter Cookie Pie

My job took me to our Eufaula clinic several years ago and the staff was celebrating Employee Appreciation Day.  Starla, the nurse mgr., had prepared desserts for the staff and the Peanut Butter Cookie Pie was delightful.  A peanut butter cookie for the crust ... yum! I love getting new recipes and always look forward to sharing them with my family.  You can bet this was the dessert that I took to Mom & Dad's for everyone to try and it was a winner!  Surprise your family with a Peanut Butter Cookie Pie. 

                                                        Peanut Butter Cookie Pie

8 oz. Cool Whip
Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix
8 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese, room temperature
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

Prepare cookie mix as directed.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a 9 inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. 

Place cookie dough in center of pie plate.  Using your hands, work with the dough to cover the bottom and sides of the pie plate.  Do not press the dough over the rim of the pie plate.  Bake at 350 degrees for 18 to 20 min.  Remove from the oven and press down center slightly.  Cool completely.

In a large bowl, blend together the cream cheese and both sugars until smooth.  Add peanut butter and vanilla.  Fold in Cool Whip until no streaks remain.  Spoon peanut butter filling into cooled crust.  Refrigerate at least one hour.  You may top with crushed peanuts or drizzle chocolate over pie. 

This pie is very rich and you may wish to serve small slices  ... or not!
