Peanut Butter Pie

recipe from Eric's mom

8 oz cream cheese, softened and cut into cubes
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup chilled whipping cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
*1 large tub cool whip, save half for topping
1 ready made chocolate cookie crumb pie crust
Peanut butter cups, cut into bite size pieces

combine all in ingredients, except crust.
blend with mixer until smooth
(electric mixer on medium)

fill crust with mixture
place pie in freezer for minimum of 2 hours

** the tub of cool whip is not part of the original recipe Eric's mom found in a magazine. So it makes for a greater amount of pie filling than what will fit in the crust. You could crush up oreos and make individual servings in addition to the pie.
I bought the larger tub of cool whip, using half in the pie filling and saving some of it to top the pie with
then top that cool whip with peanut butter cup pieces

1/2 cup milk
2 tsp minced onion
1 tsp garlic salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Chef-Boy-R-Dee Pizza sauce with cheese

Mix together first 6 ingredients

FYI- using Mozzarella string cheese does not work well!
