Recipe ~ Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

Crust: You may cheat and use a pre made chocolate crumb crust, or....take the time for my Oreo crust.

Oreo Crust
1/2 package of Oreo cookies - split and the filling removed
1/4 cup soft butter
2 T sugar
Crush the cookies into fine crumbs and mix with the butter and sugar. Press into an 8" pie pan and set aside.

Peanut Butter Filling
1 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1 8 oz package of soft cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk

1 1/2 c Cool Whip topping - set aside

Beat the first 4 ingredients well. For about 4 - 5 minutes on medium is good. You want it to be well blended and fluffy. Beat in the whipped topping on LOW till well blended. Spread evenly into the crust and cover lightly with plastic wrap.

Freeze till solid.

Spread a 2" layer of whipped topping on the frozen pie and garnish with Oreo cookies cut in half circles. If you are not going to serve it right away you may freeze it again after garnishing.
