My mom and I were eating a peanut butter pie one Thanksgiving that someone brought over for dessert. We both agreed that the filling was great but thought the graham crust was kind of boring. So, I decided to experiment and came up with this recipe that I served that Christmas. My mom, along with the rest of my family loved it and it is now requested by someone every holiday.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The Kitchen Crew is already asking when we can make this one again - a real hit around the dinner table!

Ingredients

1 box
fudge brownie mix
1 pkg
deep dish frozen pie crust (thawed)
1 c
creamy peanut butter
1 pkg
of cream cheese (8 0z.)
1/2 c
powdered sugar
1 small
tub of whipped topping

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix brownie mix according to directions on box. Spread 1/2 cup of the mix into one thawed pie crust ( you can always make brownies with the rest). Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and brownie is set. While cooling, mix the cream cheese (best mixes if cheese softened to room temp.) with the powdered sugar. Mix until creamy then mix in the peanut butter until well blended. Mix in 1/2 of the tub of whipped topping until well blended. Spread the mixture into the crust when it is completely cooled. Spread the remaining whipped topping over the filling and if you wish you can top it with miniature peanut butter cups. Refrigerate for at least an hour and enjoy.

Vanessa, I can not imagine how it would matter, but is there an 800 number on the pkg. that you could call & ask them what they thought you should do?

I can't wait to make this tonight - my only question is that the directions on the Marie Callender's Deep Frozen Pie Crust says not to thaw - does anyone know if it's a big deal if I thaw anyway? Thanks in advance!

I think I will make it "just about" the same. I will not use as much as half, but pretty close. My husband liked it as well.

Well, after rereading all of the comments, I noticed I had read several that stated 1/2 of the mix and thought that was correct. I will say, that's the way I made it (w/o the pie crust since we were snowed in and I didn't have any) and it was wonderful. I'm making it again for Easter, actually making two, and am making it exactly the way I made it before. My husband loved it (and he's pretty picky)! Everything else was followed exactly. This is an awesome recipe!
