Chocolate Peanut Pie

Chocolate Peanut Pie was the pie I made for the Church Pie Auction.  The pie filling was really creamy and super rich.  My awesome Hubby was the highest bidder for my pie.

Cally made a Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Pie.  Her recipe was adapted from Monica's recipe on Lick the Bowl Good.  Cally used a graham cracker crust, only made the peanut butter Mousse filling, topping the peanut butter mousse with the Chocolate glaze and a ring of whipping cream around the edge.  For the recipe click here Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Pie

Cally's pie brought highest bid in the pie auction at Church last night.  It looked awesome!

Chocolate Peanut Pie
adapted from Taste of Home

1-1/4 cup chocolate cookie crumbs (20 cookies)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 C powdered sugar

In a small bowl, combine cookie crumbs and sugar; stir in butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

For filling, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Gently spoon into crust.

For the topping: Beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form then add the powdered sugar and beat until well set.  If desired you can pipe the whipping cream on top of the pie for the flowered look that I have or you can just spread it out over the top of the pie.

Store in refrigerator. Yield: 8-10 servings.

Coconut Lime Vanilla Wafers

Billy and Cally came home for the weekend.  They only got to stay 1 night because of this storm that the weathermen seemed to blow out of proportion again.  Billy and Cally went up to Columbus last night because Cally had to catch a flight to Florida today and we were afraid with the ice they were predicting that it might be tough getting her there.  As it ends up we could have taken her because as of right now the weathermen were not right on what they were predicting.  They are still saying we are to get a lot of snow overnight but I am not holding my breath on this one.

I made these cookies so Billy would have some goodies to take home with him.  The coconut lime flavor is really tasty 

Coconut Lime Vanilla Wafers

1/2 C butter, softened
1 C white sugar
1 egg
1 Tbps lime juice
1 tsp coconut extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 C flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
sanding sugar for dipping before baking

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg, vanilla, lime juice and coconut extract.  Combine the flour, baking powder and salt then add dry ingredients into the cookie mixture.

Drop by teaspoons fulls onto ungreased (I used cookie sheets covered with parchment paper) about 2 inches apart.

Bake until edges of cookies are golden brown 12 to 15 minutes.
