Favorite Pin Friday | Volume 19

For the last few weeks I've avoided the kitchen. I know, what's wrong with me!? I think the Texas heat plus the lack of interest in food won, but I am happy to report I have rediscovered this room again!

This week I've been busy in the kitchen. My latest goal is to add more vegetables to every dish. Doesn't hurt to sneak a few in here and there. A food processor is your best friend ;) Today I'm sharing a pie recipe that requires no cooking. Glorious, another easy dessert recipe!

Another obsession of mine (besides black and white everything!) is peanut butter. So today is a Peanut Butter Pie from Thank goodness for Pinterest because my mom used to make this pie for me all the time, but I've misplaced the recipe. The one I'm sharing is pretty close.

The original recipe is for 2 pies, but I'm giving instructions for 1.

1/2 8oz package of cream cheese
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup milk
8oz package frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 9-inch prepared graham cracker crust
  1. Beat together cream cheese and confectioners' sugar. Mix in peanut butter and milk. Beat until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
  2. Spoon into pie shell, cover and freeze until firm.

I try to make this pie 1 day in advance so it can stay in the freezer overnight. Let it thaw just a little before serving so it's cold and creamy. Great summer dessert.

Until next post...xoxo Becca
