Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Pie is every peanut butter lovers dream dessert. This delicious cross between a giant cookie and a pie is full of Reese’s pieces and peanut butter cups.
If you’re a fan of all things peanut butter then you are going to just adore this treat and the many others we’ve made over the years. You can simply never go wrong when you put peanut butter in your dessert.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Pie
The texture and flavor of this dessert is really a total mashup of cookie and pie. It looks a lot like a soft cookie but has the slight squishiness of a pie. You certainly do need a fork to eat this!
Grab a jug of milk, a container of vanilla ice cream, your sweet tooth, and let’s do this.
Ingredients You’ll Need:
- Pie Crust. These are the ones you grab pre-made in the frozen section. Make sure you’ve got them thawed out.
- Creamy Peanut Butter. You can choose your favorite brand, but make sure it isn’t crunchy.
- Unsalted Butter. Let it set out to room temperature so it’s easy to mix.
- Brown Sugar.
- Granulated Sugar.
- Vanilla Extract. I always remind you, that the better the vanilla the tastier dessert. Imitation vanilla just doesn’t taste as good.
- Salt. We’re adding in our own salt so that is why you don’t want to have salted butter.
- All-Purpose Flour.
- Reese’s peanut butter cups.
- Reese’s pieces candy.
How To Make A Loaded Peanut Butter Cookie Pie
This truly is a pretty simple dessert. It takes minimal effort and cooks in the oven pretty quick. Here is what you’ll do.
- Crust. Lay your thawed pie crust in a pie dish and preheat your oven. If you want to crimp the edges, this is the time to do it.
- Mix. Beat together the peanut butter, butter and two kinds of sugars until they are nice and creamy. Then add in the egg, vanilla and salt and mix again. Lastly, slowly add in the flour and mix.
- Reese’s. Pour in your Reese’s candies and gently fold them into the batter with a spoon.
- Bake. Press the mixture into the crust making sure it goes all the way to the sides. Add a couple more pieces of chocolate candy on top and bake for 35 minutes. Let it cool for an hour before enjoying.
Serving Your Dessert
You’ll love this just as it is, fresh out of the oven (after it’s cooled a bit, of course) with a glass of milk.
But even better, is serving it warm with a cold scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. It’s heavenly!
This could be a great alternative to a birthday cake if you’re getting a little bored with them. I plan to make this for my peanut butter loving husband for his birthday this weekend! I think it will be a huge hit with him.
