In my previous post I lamented the fact that summer is not the best time to bake, what with it being sticky and hot and all. Luckily, there are still some sweet treats that can be easily whipped up without the aid of an oven
Like this delicious No Bake Peanut Butter Pie
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup milk
1 (16 ounce) package frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crusts
Beat together cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar. Mix in peanut butter and milk. Beat until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
Spoon into two 9 inch graham cracker pie shells; cover, and freeze until firm.
-I split this recipe in half, as I only needed one pie (although, looking back on it, I should have made two- can never have too much pie!)
-In the picture on allrecipes.com, it looks like there are oreos in/on the pie, so I took that one step further, and used an oreo crust (instead of graham cracker), and I also crumbled up some oreos into the pie itself
It was really delicious – and easy. The perfect summer treat!
