This time, I made a homemade Oreo crust like the recipe suggests and didn't use a store bought crumb crust. The Oreo crust is SO much better!! It makes too much mixture for just the crust though, so we ate the rest of it sprinkled over the top of the pie.

Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Pie II
adapted from Real Mom Kitchen via Myself
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1. Crush the Oreos until they’re fine crumbs (food processor is good). Pour melted butter over the top and stir with a fork to combine. Press into pie pan and bake at 350 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes, or until set. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. (You may have some mixture leftover; made too much for my pie pan.)
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 (8-ounce) package softened cream cheese
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
For stabilized whipped cream:
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
4 teaspoons cold water
2/3 or 1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1. Make the stablized whipped cream: In a small pan, combine gelatin and cold water; let stand until thick. Place over low heat, stirring constantly, just until the gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat; cool just slightly- a few minutes (do NOT allow it to set). Whip the cream with the icing sugar, until slightly thick. While slowly beating, add the gelatin to whipping cream. Whip at high speed until stiff.
2. Add the peanut butter and cream cheese- beat until smooth, but not too long; you do not want to deflate the whipped cream. Add powdered sugar and beat until smooth, scraping the sides as needed.
3. Pour filling into crust, evening out the top with a knife or spatula. Chill for at least an hour before serving. (It’s better the longer it sits in the fridge- mine was in there 4-5 hours). Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
