Individual Peanut Butter Pies

Individual Peanut Butter Pies

  • 3/4 cup finely crushed chocolate cookie crumbs (such as Oreos or graham crackers)
  • 1-2 tablespoons cold coffee, espresso syrup or even melted butter (to moisten the crumbs)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 8 teaspoons chocolate syrup
  • 4 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • coarse Kosher salt

Drizzle the crushed cookies with the coffee, syrup or melted butter and toss with a fork to moisten.  Set aside.  Set out 4 small glasses or jars.

Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla for two minutes, until smooth and creamy.  Beat in the cream for 1 minute.  Scoop into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip.

Spoon half the chocolate cookie crumbs into the jars and gently tamp down with the bottom of a smaller glass (such as the bottom of a shot glass).  Pipe 1/2 of the peanut butter filling over the crumbs.  Drizzle half the chocolate syrup over the filling and sprinkle with half the chocolate chips.  Repeat with the rest of the crumbs, peanut butter filling, chocolate syrup and chocolate chips.  Add a pinch of salt over the top of each.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.  These can be prepared up to 1 day in advance.

Yields 4 servings.
