Frozen Reeses Peanut Butter Pie ~ Crushed Reese’s peanut butter cups, peanut butter and Cool Whip meet cute for a twenty-minute, frozen, peanut butter pie.
I’ve been in a lazy funk, by that I mean I’m just can’t seem to muster up the energy lately to get this growing butt of mine motivated to get back in my running routine. So with that comes peanut butter desserts and lots of if it.
The reason being – I can’t eat it! And as many of you know baking is my addiction, so fat or skinny, tired or not, baking happens because it makes me happy. Eating it does as well, but since I’m trying to find some measure of self control, baking something I can’t eat will certainly offset my lack of physical activity. Luckily, I know many peanut butter loving people that I can happily bake for. Yay and thank you for that! And hey, I even made it a low fat, fast and easy dessert recipe-so get baking!
These two things seem to be the recurring theme this last week or two, but get ready for caloric comeback in just a few days. I”m crossing my fingers that it will coincide with me regaining my energy level for a nice long run, after what I am predicting, will be a an eating fest. Well, that is, if concept to reality is a success for the envisioned dessert.
A few notes:
Makes one 9 inch pie or three 4 inch mini pies. 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.
