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.

Adding brownies to the crust of this pie is a real game-changer. It gives this peanut butter pie a very decadent flavor. The cream cheese peanut butter filling is light, sweet, and tangy. It does taste like a Reese's Cup! Super easy to make, your family will request this dessert often.
