This is one of the 3 pies along with Sweet Potato Pecan Pie that I made at the pie making class last month. The crust here is super simple, it’s just crumbled cookies mixed with some melted butter. I guess the chef wanted to teach us a very easy crust along with the ones that are a bit more elaborate.
The filling is the highlight of this pie. I wasn’t sure if I would like the peanut butter in the filling, but when I tasted it — it was a dynamite. Peanut butter taste is not too assertive, but plays a nice balance to the cream cheese and brown sugar.
Adding frozen whipped topping like Coolwhip is vital instead of using fresh whipped cream because the frozen ones have stabilizers that will keep the fluffiness even after adding all the other ingredients. All in all, a beautiful pie that is sure to please a crowd.
