Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie

Reese's Peanut Butter Pie Recipe - Pies Before Guys

Current status: eating leftover Reese’s Pieces for breakfast.

I wish I had a nice slice of pie to go with it. But unfortunately for me, this Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie is long gone.

The BF ate it in record time. So there’s a 100% chance I’ll make this again in the near future.

Aside from being literally the most delicious combination of Oreos, peanut butter, chocolate and Reese’s…it’s really quite pretty too. Rather festive for Halloween if I do say so myself.

And if you weren’t convinced yet—it is easy peasy to throw together.

So crack open some peanut butter and get to it.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie

Ingredients

OREO CRUST

20 peanut butter Oreos (regular works too)
5 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

CHOCOLATE GANACHE 

3/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

PEANUT BUTTER FILLING 

3/4 cup heavy cream
8 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup Reese’s Pieces

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease your pie pan lightly with butter.

Make the crust: In a food processor, finely pulse the Oreos. Stir in melted butter until it is the texture of wet sand. Firmly press into the pie dish. Freeze for 10-15 minutes before baking. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Allow to cool.

Make the chocolate ganache: Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Scald the cream in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. As soon as it begins to boil remove from heat and pour over the chocolate. Allow to sit for 30 seconds, then continually, gently stir until the ganache is smooth. Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature and slowly thicken.

Make the filling: Using a hand mixer, beat the heavy cream on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, then set aside. In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract together until combined. Mixture should be rather thick. Slowly fold in the whipped cream until smooth.

Assemble the pie: Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the Reese’s Pieces on top of the cooled crust. Pour ganache into your pie pan, then spread peanut butter filling evenly on top. Chop the remaining 1/2 cup of Reese’s Pieces and sprinkle on top.

Before serving, chill the pie in the refrigerator for 4-5 hours to firm up. Enjoy!

  1. SavouriesTO – No one really ever thinks of cooking as the first option for stress relief. If anything, most women could argue it generates stress. But between juggling life as a biomed undergrad, and just the average young adult with a rollercoaster of life, cooking has been one of the solid few things from a young age as I could turn to and say "I got this". Especially coming from a South Asian background, I was blessed with an introduction to the world of never ending spices. I look forward to sharing my culinary experiances, and provide a further meaning from all of it. It's not just for the tummy, but for the soul as well. - S.

I tend to try to steer clear of politics these days, but you may see me slip something along those lines in every now and then.
