Buckeye Pie

This month's you want Pie With That contest is to be inspired by a favorite vacation. Well...I'm posting a little too late to post, but oh well, I made it. I still will try to get it posted. I grew up in Fairborn, Ohio, just outside of Dayton. Of course, I am an Ohio State Buckeye fan. I was born in Columbus while my dad attended to graduate school there. Now that my parents live here, we go watch the games at Bru's Room in Coral Springs.

Anyway....some of my favorite vacations are to Ohio for my high school reunions. I still stay with my first husband's family and have a great time seeing all my friends. Ohio made me think of the Buckeyes.

I tried several times to pie the chocolate pie crusts at Publix and never saw any. I asked my co-worker, Michelle, to look at Walmart and she found them. Guess what I can find at Publix now...yes...chocolate pie crusts!

I found this pie recipe on http://www.tailgating.com/.


3/4 cup peanut butter
2 cups milk
1 large chocolate instant pudding
16 oz Cool Whip
4 oz cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
2 chocolate pie crusts


Mix powdered sugar, peanut butter, cream cheese together. Add 1/2 the whip cream and mix until well blended. Divide the mix between the two pie crusts.

Mix the milk and instant pudding together for 2 minutes. Pour the pudding into the two pies and spread out evenly.

Spread the remaining Cool Whip over top of the two pies. Garnish with chocolate shavings or sprinkles.

After the peanut butter mixture.

After adding the pudding mixture

Both pies

You KNOW how much I love chocolate and peanut butter...YUM!

I've heard no trip to Fairborn is complete without a stop at Foy's...what's your opinion on that????

Michelle said...

Michele, I haven't tried yet; taking one to my mom's. Jennifer, I remember Foy's well. it's a lot of stuff there, like a junk store. I used to love looking in there! I remember the creaky wood floors!
