This is one of my favorite ‘easy-as-pie’ recipes to make. It is sinfully rich and everyone loves it. There’s ‘nary a crumb leftover. Drink with a tall glass of milk. I’m saying this from experience because this pie gives me heartburn fire, strong enough to melt a car in the middle of winter!
Today after chores at 3 locations, we went to our local county fair. Our daughter was able to show in the young kids’ class for children too little for 4-H. They meet up with an older exhibitor, borrow a pig and show them for the class. She borrowed “Wheezie” (think Toy Story) from Pat and Jack today, thanks guys! The young show kids get interviewed by the judge and get a pretty rainbow ribbon. Best part for her, showing and having so many of her friends there watching her. Thanks Ashley, Brian, Aylah, Dawsyn, Brianna, Jessica, and the rest of our family for coming to watch! Now we’re home, ready to walk the pigs here for the second time today and celebrate my cousin’s birthday later on.
Here are some pics of the day.
Happy after the show with her pretty rainbow ribbon. (Don’t tell her it is ‘participation’. She ‘won’ the show, of course.)
Thanking Jack for the help getting to the show ring and the use of his barrow, Wheezie.
Taking care of business.
Little brother went right up to say high to his sis. She said, “Hey bud! Look at my pig!”.
She was so happy to have a great friend come to watch her! Thank you A.!
She had a great time, show is over… walking Wheezie back to his pen.
Stop growing up so fast. This Mom can’t handle it!
I mean it… stop. growing. up.
Next stop… kindergarten.

Peanut Butter Pie

Makes one 8″ or 9″ pie
Ingredients for Crust:
20 Chocolate Sandwich Cookies (such as Oreos)
4 TBSP butter
1 TBSP sugar
Pulse cookies in food processor until coarse crumbs. Add butter and sugar. Pulse until fine crumbs. Pour into greased pie plate. Press gently. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool.
Ingredients for Filling:
1 1/2 C peanut butter (I prefer smooth)
1 1/2 C powdered sugar
1 1/2 blocks or 12 oz. cream cheese
1 small container Cool Whip + additional cool whip for serving if desired.
Beat peanut butter and powdered sugar until smooth. Add cream cheese, mix until well incorporated. Add Cool Whip, beat until well mixed, keeping the filling fluffy and light. Spoon into cooled pie shell. Refrigerate for 6 hours and up to 2 days, covered with plastic. For serving, sprinkle additional Oreos on pie, garnish with extra Cool Whip if desired.
