Peanut Butter Pie

Here's another recipe that I just tried and it was delicious. It makes me drool just typing it out. No baking involved.

Crust:
1½ cups graham cracker crumbs
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ pound melted butter

Combine ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Press the misture into the bottom of a nin-inch springform pan and place in the freezer while you prepare the filling.

Filling:
2 cups heavy cream
1 pound cream cheese (room temperature)
1 cup sugar
1½ cups peanut putter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Whip the heavy cream to medium peaks. Set aside and chill. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the sugar and mix well. Add the peanut butter and vanilla and mix until smooth and creamy. Fold in the whipped cream. Place the batter into the pie shell and freeze for one hour.

Chocolate sauce:
½ cup heavy cream
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a heavy saucepan, bring the cream to a boil. Turn off the heat and add the chocolate chips. Stir the chocolate until smooth. Let cool. Pour the sauce onto the pie and place in the refrigerator for one hour. Serve chilled.
