In honor of the upcoming holiday season, I am going to holding a special event…PIE WEEK! I’ll be sharing a new pie recipe each day, and this is the one to kick it off.

To begin, you’ll need a graham cracker pie shell. You can buy one if you like, but they are so simple to make that you can whip one together in a couple minutes. In a bowl, stir together 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs, 1/3 cup sugar and 6 tablespoons of melted butter. Press this in the bottom of a pie plate or a spring form pan. Stick it in the fridge until you are done making the filling. That’s it!

In your mixing bowl, start with 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter. Mine is a freshly ground one, so it has little bits of peanut in there…{Love!}

To that you’ll add 4 ounces of room temperature cream cheese and 2/3 cup powdered sugar. Beat those until creamy.

Mix in 1/2 cup of milk, and stir until it is fully combined.

Be sure to scrape your bowl and get every bit of peanut butter stirred in. Set that aside for a moment.

Now to make this pie fluffy. In a mixing bowl (yes, I have 2 mixers. If you only have one bowl for your mixer, put the peanut butter cream into another big bowl, and do this in your washed mixer bowl.) combine 1 cup of whipping cream, 1/3 cup powdered sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla. Beat this on high until you have beautiful whipped cream with stiff peaks.

Pour the whipped cream in with the peanut butter cream.

Ever so gently, fold the two together until they are just combined.

Spread the mixture into your pie shell.

Isn’t this lovely? Wrap this well with foil and stick it in the freezer for about an hour or more. You can even make this a couple days ahead and keep it frozen until you are ready for it. Before you serve it, you’ll want to set it on the counter for about 30 minutes to make it easier to cut.

This pie will simply melt in your mouth.
