Frozen Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie

Hey KS Fans,

One of my all-time favorite candy bars is the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and my favorite way of eating them is usually after I have frozen them. I recently came across this great recipe that actually makes a frozen pie dessert out of them – calorie heaven!  I know I am on a little health craze lately, so that is why I make these in small mini pies and eat just a small portion of that – moderation and after all peanut butter is PROTEIN!

These are great for dessert to any dairy meal and can be kept in the freezer for weeks.

Enjoy!

Sarah

 

Tips:    If you have a peanut allergy, try substituting Nutella for the peanut butter.

This recipe was made in three 4 inch mini springform pans, but it can just as easily be made in a 9 inch pie pan or cake pan.

Adapted from a recipe www.bakersroyale.com

Preparation: Lightly butter springform pan if it is not non-stick. If you do not have a springform pan line a cake pan with a piece of lightly buttered foil leaving a one inch over hang around the edges for easy pie removal or alternately use a traditional pie pan.

  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 ½ cups Heavy Cream or Whip Topping
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup confectioner sugar

  1. Place Oreos in a food processor or blender and pulse until cookies are finely crumbed. Alternatively, place Oreos in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin.  Mix in the melted butter and then firmly press crumbs into pan to create a crust. Bake crust at 350 degrees F for 7-10 minutes.
  2. In a mixer using your whisk attachment, whip up 2 ½ cups of heavy cream until you have stiff peaks

    • admin says:

      You can by substituting the reeses with a pareve version of that candy, and using non-dairy whip instead of heavy cream

        i tried finding a parve version of the candy. any ideas? it sounds delicious and i want to try it for Shabbos.

          im thinking – not sure – but I think if you take a parave chocolate bar – crush up melt and add peanut butter – than freeze it (make your own reeses essentially) – than crush it up and use – you might actually have a great parave version
