Whatcha Cookin' Wednesday?

I wasn't planning on posting a recipe every Wednesday, but it just happened that the past few Wednesdays I've had some floating around that I just had to share.

I've made the fabulous pie recipe that I'm sharing today a few times, and it's always a hit. The first time I made it was for a Girls' Night viewing of the Twilight movie at my friend AS' house. Yes, I am a huge dork, and yes, I think Edward Cullen is da bomb. When my friend L and a bunch of other girls from my MOPS group raved about Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series, I sort of rolled my eyes. I love chick lit, but I drew the line at books marketed to teens.

Come on, girls. I thought. We're grown women. Why are you obsessed with an angst-filled teen romance series about vampires? I hate vampires, horror, and blood and guts stuff. Isn't there anything better to read?

No, there is not.
I got sucked in (pun intended) from chapter 1. I started reading, confident that my superior literary taste gleaned from a college degree in English, Speech, and Linguistics would save my mind from the drivel I had just purchased at my favorite bookstore. Turns out I like drivel. A lot.

Apparently I'm not the only one. As I stood in line at Border's to purchase the remaining books in the series, practically bouncing up and down with excitement, there were no less than 4 other women chatting about their obsession with the series. Several had teenage daughters that got them hooked. It's like a drug, really. We all need rehab. The Twilight series is not Spenser, Dumas, or Shakespeare. That's like comparing a filet mignon to some amusement park cotton candy. Twilight is complete fluff.

But it's delicious.

Just like this pie. (Betcha were wondering how I'd tie that in...hehe)

Ya'll this pie is so sinful, you just might have to go to church and say a prayer after you eat a slice. It's so good, it's baaaaaaad. Here you go:

{Decadent Peanut Butter Pie}
from Jif

Ingredients:
1 prepared chocolate cookie pie crust
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup Jif creamy peanut butter (I've also made it with Peter Pan because that's what we had, and it was not as good as the Jif pie!)
8 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
4 1/2 cups non-dairy whipped topping (12 oz. container)
1 (11.75 oz) jar of Smucker's hot fudge topping


Directions:
In a medium bowl, beat peanut butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Gently fold in 3 cups of whipped topping and spoon mixture into pie shell. Using a spatula, smooth mixture to edges of pie shell. Put hot fudge in a bowl and microwave for one minute. Stir, then cover the peanut butter layer and freeze.

Note: I like to drizzle a little bit of that Reese's peanut butter sauce (you can find it in the ice cream aisle) on top to make it pretty!







Mixin' it up!















You could just eat it like this, but it's only a few more steps, I promise!














This is the......................I'm sorry, I got distracted by the mouth-watering beauty of the chocolate.







Voila!
Bon Appetit, Ya'll!
If Mimi and I end up taking the girls down to NC to see my Nannie, I'll plan on posting some oldies but goodies for you all for Thursday and Friday!

Totally with you on the Twilight books but I have to part ways with you on the movie. That movie ruined the books for me.

I will agree with you on the movie. The movie "Bella" was really annoying, Rosalie was not as pretty as she seemed like she was in the book, and I wasn't sure about Charlie either....

Kris said...

That pie looks to die for. Oh my... Thanks for the recipe!

Jan said...

I saw your blog name on Bella's blog. By any chance is it from Seinfeld?

Giddy up...

Apparently, I like any form of fluff...pie, carnival food, literature, etc. Except, I'm not sure if Twilight would be considered "literature" to most people. whatever it is...me likey...ALOT! I've read all 4 books twice. The movie, however, was a joke. Although drooling over Robert Pattinson for 2 hours wasn't all bad.

BTW, thank you so much for passing on your well deserved award to me. you are too sweet! I'm so glad we are BBFF's.
