I wanted to make dessert the other night, so I looked in the fridge to see what I had. This is what I came up with. Really easy and quick to make. The hardest part is letting it cool!

How to Make Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownie Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Press room temperature pie crust into 9" pie pan. Set aside.
  2. Cream milk and cream cheese with electric mixer on a lower speed until smooth.
  3. Add confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. Mix until blended.
  4. Mix brownies as directed on box. Pour half of the brownie mix into prepared pie crust.
  5. Next, spoon all of the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie layer.
  6. Pour the rest of the brownie mixture on top. Smooth over with rubber spatula.
  7. Cover the edges of pie with aluminum foil to prevent crust from over browning. Bake 35-40 minutes.
  8. After 35-40 minutes, remove foil from pie and bake an additional 10-15 minutes (pie may crack on top, this is okay).
  9. Remove pie from the oven.
  10. Sprinkle with mini chips. Let pie cool completely (3 hours on the counter, hour and a half in the fridge). After the pie is cool, you can drizzle with the chocolate syrup if your boxed brownie included the chocolate packet.
  11. Slice and enjoy. Watch out! It's decadent.
