Oh My Goodness!!! This Peanut Butter Cookie Pie is AMAZING!!! You guys, you guys, you guys. You are going to LOVE it! Promise me that you will make this.
I saw a picture on Facebook, of a cookie pie like this, and when I saw all the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and M&Ms rolling in on Halloween, I knew this had to go down.
I used my favorite and trusted Peanut Butter Cookie recipe and tweaked it to work as a pie. FANTASTIC!!! FANTASTIC!!! FANTASTIC!!! Did I mention this cookie pie is FANTASTIC???!!!!
I used six regular fun-sized Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and three fun size packs of M&Ms. It was just right for the pie. If you want to get crazy go ahead and add another peanut butter cup. Also, the Reese’s Mini’s would work perfect in this and you wouldn’t even have to cut them.
This recipe is so easy to make too. You don’t even need to use your mixer. You start by melting the butter in the microwave and then just stir everything else in. It takes about five minutes to mix up and you throw it in the oven…25 minutes later you have a perfect Peanut Butter Cookie Pie on your hands.
We’ve never had a cookie pie at Thanksgiving before, but you can be sure we will this year and every year from hear on out. The few members of the family who aren’t big on pie will be so excited to have this Peanut Butter Cookie Pie to enjoy….if they can keep me from eating it all myself that is…..
This recipe is for a 9 inch pie pan.
- 1 cup Brown Sugar
- ½ cup Peanut Butter, I like creamy
- ½ cup softened Butter
- 1 large Egg
- 1¼ cup All-Purpose Flour
- ¾ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt, scant (I use coarse sea salt, it's the bomb)
- 6 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, fun size, Cut into fourths
- ¼ cup of M&Ms (about 3 fun size packages)
- 1 tbsp granulated white sugar to sprinkle on top
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, melt butter for 30-40 seconds until just melted.
- Add brown sugar and peanut butter (adding this first to the hot butter helps it cool down before you add the egg.
- Stir well. Add egg, and mix until it is beaten in.
- Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well until completely incorporated.
- Gently stir in half of the Candy, saving the rest to decorate the top.
- Once candy is stirred in. Spread cookie dough into a lightly greased 9 inch pie tin.
- Sprinkle top with 1 tbsp of granulated sugar and then use remaining candy to decorate top.
- Bake at 350 for 25-28 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and toothpick comes out mostly clean from the center. It's okay if it has a few moist looking crumbs on it but you don't want it to have gooey batter on it.
- Let cool at least 2 hours before serving.
