This is my entry for the Pi Pie. Just a good ol peanut butter cheese cake, it sticks to the roof of your mouth and everything. This is a super simple, no bake recipe. You probably have all the stuff in the house already to make it.
Step 1: Gather the stuff
Here is what you need to make this wonderful creation:
9in graham cracker crust, I prolly should have made this but I was feeling lazy and was a little limited on time.
1 cup of creamy peanut butter
2 packages of real cheese
1 cup of powdered sugar, Be sure to use powdered sugar as table sugar will give the pie a grainy texture
a few handfuls of semi sweet chocolate chips.
The chocolate chips are mostly for decoration but do add a kind of peanut butter cup taste to this pie. The original recipe that was given to me just started 1 cup each, peanut butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar, add a splash of vanilla. So it is very forgiving.
Step 2: Add the Elbow Grease
I tossed two tablespoons of vanilla in the bottom of my bowl then added the powdered sugar, peanut butter and cream cheese. The order you add it doesn't really matter, because you are going to mix the heck out of it until its all homogeneous. Mix the mass until there is no streaks and all of the powdered sugar and vanilla is incorporated. I used a regular spoon for this, I tried a potato masher thinking that it would work better to mix everything with, I was wrong. What helped mixing the pie filling more was to pop the bowl in the microwave for 30 second intervals until everything was just warm enough to mix easy.
