Peanut Butter Madness Pie

Sorry about the lapse in entries. My internet connection was down for three days. Oh, the horror! But, like the Terminator, I'm back. Since it's Thursday, Recipe Day, here's something to tempt you. It's probably a zillion calories a serving, but hey, you only live once. You could make it and have a bite every day for like a year. Right? Or you could eat a piece and run a marathon. Or, just forget it and enjoy.

Peanut Butter Madness Pie

1 1/4 cups chocolate cookie crumbs (20 cookies)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 Tbs butter or margarine, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
Grated chocolate or chocolate cookie crumbs (optional)

Combine crust ingredients and press into a 9" pie plate. (This actually makes enough filling for two pies. Or, you could make it in a springform pan and probably be okay.) Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Cool.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Gently spoon into crust. Garnish with chocolate or cookie crumbs if desired. Refrigerate. (8-10 servings)
