Last week on Twitter SuZ from Not Your Typical Mommy sent out a Tweet seeing if anyone wanted something written or something along those lines (I don’t remember the exact wording). Well, I jumped on it and asked if she would want to guest post for me this week!
Let me tell you…. when I read her recipe I was all but wiping the drool off my computer! I’m a HUGE fan of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and have been known to dip my mini Hershey bar in the jar of peanut butter for a quick snack. So when I saw this I knew that it was something that I would love as well as my family! I’m thinking of topping it with some hot fudge & whipped cream! YUM!
With my official baking season right around the corner (Hello, Fall!), I’m gearing up to spend my days knee deep in cake mixes, pies, bread dough and more.
Baking season, for me, runs from the beginning of October to very end of December. I picked these months as my baking season because who really wants to spend the hot summer months in front of a stove or spend the glorious spring season inside?
I celebrate baking because anything that is yummy and tasty deserves its own season. I love baking so much and I’m not biased about just one bakery item. I make cookies, cakes, pies, candy, ice cream… you name it. I’ve baked it, or attempted to bake it (I’m not the best baker, but I really do try. I swear!).
The one item I make constantly (especially because it’s my husband’s favorite) is peanut butter pie. A staple in any family holiday event we host. Seriously, if we show up and we don’t have peanut butter pie in our hands, we’re told to run back home and get it.
It’s that good.
It started with my husband’s grandmother and the recipe has been passed down and now it’s in my hands. I think that because it was started by this wonderful woman we want it on our table at every family event so it feels like she’s still with us.
Ingredients and Directions
• Mix four ounces of cream cheese and 1 cup of powder sugar together in your stand mixer.
• Then add in 1/3 cup of creamy peanut butter (any brand will do).
• In a separate bowl, mix together 1 box of Dream Whip Whipped Topping with 2/3 cup of milk (Whole milk works best).
• You want to whip that until it’s stiff then add in the peanut butter mixture.
• After it’s good and mixed, put it in a graham cracker crust and freeze overnight.
Pure heaven, I swear by it.
And don’t worry, you don’t have wait until Baking Season to make this, go ahead and do it now.
Seriously, now! Your family will thank you, I promise.
