A few months ago, we had my good friend Krista and her husband Jake over for dinner. Krista and I met in college, we were both Criminal Justice majors. I was from Iowa, she was a local. Somewhere along the line, we just clicked and have became really great friends. So when she asked what she could bring for the dinner, I told her dessert and as usual she did not disappoint.
For weeks after our dinner, I craved this Buckeye Pie (kinda like a Buckeye Bar, but in pie form). I was so excited when she emailed me the recipe that I had to make it right away for our first cook out with our neighbors.
You’ll need Peanut Butter, Vanilla, Butter, Powdered Sugar, Instant Chocolate Pudding and Milk and Cool Whip.
In a bowl combine peanut butter, vanilla and softened butter. Then mix in powdered sugar until the mixture is crumbly. It is easiest to make it crumbly with a fork.
In a separate bowl, prepare instant chocolate pudding according to the package for the pie filling.
Mix in all but 1/4 cup of the peanut butter crumbles.
Pour into a baked pie crust. Just don’t do what I did and forget to bake the pie crust before filling it. I had to make a graham cracker crust since I put the filling in the pie shell without baking. Opps!
Top with Cool Whip and sprinkle remaining peanut butter crumbles on top. Refrigerate before serving.
Doesn’t that look fabulous? Thanks Krista for sharing the recipe with me! I might just have to make this again tomorrow!
