Introduction: Peanut Butter Pretzel Crust Pie

This pie is just like a big chocolate peanut butter cup cookie and goes good with a scoop of ice cream or a big glass of milk.

Step 1: The Ingredients

What you will need for the crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed pretzel
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp cup butter
What you will need for the pie filling:
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 8oz bag Reese's

Step 2: Making the Crust and the Filling

For the crust:
  1. First you will need to crush the pretzels until they resemble gram cracker crumbs.
  2. Once they are crushed add in the melted butter and sugar and mix thoroughly.
  3. Press the mixture into the bottom and the sides of the pie pan.
  4. Now bake for 8 minutes at 350ºF.
While the crust is baking we will mix the pie filling:
  1. Cream the butter and the sugars together untill smooth.
  2. Then add in the eggs, vanilla, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Now we just need to mix in the flour.
  4. Finally add in the chocolate chips and the Reese minis.

Step 3: Baking

  1. Once you have removed the pie crust let is sit for about 10 minutes.  
  2. After it has cooled fill it with the pie filling and smooth it out evenly.
  3. Now it needs to bake for about 45-50 minutes at 350ºF.  
  4. Once it is done remove it from the oven and let it cool for about 2 hours, after it cools it will be ready to eat.  
This pie goes really good with ice cream and tastes just like cookie with an extra crunch to it.
