Do you ever look at the clock in the middle of an intense team Wii bowling competition to discover that it is 4:15 in the morning?!  Yikes!  That is totally what happened to me last night this morning when the BOY, my bro, and his girlfriend spent hours in front of the TV bowling.  We didn’t even believe my brother when he said the time.  Luckily by 4am, I was drinking water but that didn’t make me any less tired when I woke up after only 5 hours of sleep.  I think I could have slept all day.  I would have loved to, but the BOY and I are hosting an End of the Summer BBQ today, so there was lots of cooking and cleaning to do.  We had so much fun with the Fiesta themed for Memorial Day that we decided to do it again!

I had a sous chef (my brother) to help me with some of the chopping while I made breakfast.  Since the 4 of us spent the day hanging out in suburbia yesterday, I didn’t get a lot of prep done, so this morning, I was up and working in the kitchen right away.  The first item on my agenda was dessert.  I have an old recipe for an incredible no bake pie that I thought would be perfect for the warm weekend, but I was a little ambitious choosing to make my own pie crust, instead of buying one (like I always have in the past).

Since I was at TJ’s, I picked up some of their Oreo-like cookies.  Believe it or not, I have never tried Joe-Joe’s before.  I have been missing out for sure!

The crust turned out thick, tasty, and was exactly what I needed for this pie!

The next layer involves fudge topping!  My recommendation is to microwave the fudge so that it is easy to spread.

And although the recipe says you don’t need to use the entire container, I HIGHLY recommend it!

Then comes the peanut butter layer…which is always my favorite!

Your final layer…the one and only Whipped Cream!

Lots of whipped cream…with a few cookie crumbs sprinkled across the top!

The pie was a huge hit at our fiesta.  I haven’t made it in so long and it was even better than I remember!

We had such a fun day celebrating the end of summer with my friends and their families!  And, it was an early enough night that the BOY and I can crash and catch up on some sleep : )

 

 

 

 

 

Oreo Peanut Butter Pie

From Cooks.com

 

1 Keebler ready-made Oreo pie crust
1 (4oz) box instant French vanilla pudding mix
1 cup cold milk
3-4 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (or more if you like…which I do)
1 jar chocolate fudge sauce
1 regular container Cool Whip (thawed)

 

Have pie crust ready. OR, if you want to make your own crust, combine 1 box of crushed cookies with 1/4 cup melted butter.  Mix well and form into a pie plate with your hands.

Carefully spread/frost the bottom and sides of pie crust with fudge sauce (if really thick microwave for a few seconds). You won’t need to use the whole jar (but I think that you should!).

In a bowl, blend instant pudding and 1 cup milk using a whisk.

Using an electric mixer, add the peanut butter (mixture will be thick). Spoon onto the fudge layered pie crust.

Top with Cool Whip. Garnish with any Oreo crumbs from the pie crust.

Refrigerate.

    I bet you impressed your friends with that. It looks insanely delish! I don’t eat sugar any more or else I would be making this pie this very instant!! Perhaps I’ll save it and make it on some super duper special occasion :)
