Maggie's Peanut Butter Pie

I have been wanting to post this recipe for several weeks now. There is a lady in our town who owns a little restaurant called "Maggie's Buns" and has a catering business. All I have had she has made has been DELICIOUS! I love to go to local weddings when she caters them! She posted this recipe in a little holiday section of the newspaper and I consider it a holiday gift. This pie is like the type of pie you buy in a fancy restaurant and pay like $8 for a tiny sliver and then realize it is worth every cent!

Okay, I cut this slice not knowing how rich it is.  Wyatt and I had to share this slice. Of course--a couple hours later I wanted to have it again!


Maggie says she suggests this recipe for when last minute holiday guests arrive. Guests? I wanted to eat the whole thing myself.  Here is the recipe...

Maggie's Peanut Butter pie

Pre-made Graham Cracker crust

Pie Filling:
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup peanut Butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 T. Butter
A good swig of whiskey, bourbon or vanilla
(Cool Whip)

Pot de Creme:
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup half and half

topping: Reese's Peanut Butter cups or peanuts

Beat pie filling ingredients until creamy. Add 2 cups Cool Whip and beat until incorporated.
 Pour pie ingredients into pre-made graham cracker crust and set aside.

Melt chocolate chips and half and half in microwave for 2 minutes. Beat with a fork until mixture is very shiny. Pour over the top of your peanut butter mixture.

To add a little flair to your pie you can chop peanuts and/or peanut butter cups and sprinkle over the top. Keep refrigerated until serving.

Thats it! So easy and so delicious. Posting this recipe is making me crave it so bad--I want to make it right now! Of course, I have to limit myself because it is so good that if I make it often I would have to have one of the kids roll me over to the computer so I can do blog posts!

Enjoy!
