Peanut Butter Cookie Pie

Peanut Butter Cookie Pie! Are you ready for a little bit of decadence?   I know I sure am!   And whilst this is not over the top decadence, it is still a bit of a tasty treat.  

If you love peanut butter cookies, and you love peanut butter and jam (or chocolate) then you will absolutely adore this simple and impressive dessert!

 Peanut Butter Cookie Pie

I adore peanut butter cookies.  I think they are my favourites.   And this is essentially a big peanut butter cookie . . .  baked in a skillet (or round pie dish of that is what you have to use.)  

You can either sprinkle the cookie with some granulated sugar prior to baking, or do like I have and dust it with some icing sugar afterwards. 

I also like to use crunchy peanut butter.  But smooth is equally as good.

This goes together in a flash and bakes really quickly.  

You cut it into wedges while it is still warm  . . .  and top it with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream!  But that's not where the decadence comes in . . .

When I was a child one of our favourite desserts was when my mother gave us ice cream and then spooned strawberry preserves over top of it.   

And we all know how delicious peanut butter and jam is together . . .  it is the quintessential combination of flavours  . . .  okay so yes that is the North American in me coming out . . . but  . . .

Just look  . . . . doesn't that look fabulously delicious?? 

The British don't really understand the complexities of peanut butter and jam, or the deliciousness of it. To them it is tantamount to eating fish with custard. Does not compute.

How about this??? Doesn't that look fabulous?

Its a cutural thing I guess, this love of peanut butter and jam. Together.  In North American you can even buy it already swirled together. Peanut Butter and Grape jelly. Yum!!

  For me of course it has o be strawberry jam.  That is the perfect combination and it is perfect on this peanut butter cookie pie as well, especially drizzled over a scoop of good vanilla ice cream.

Of course chocolate sauce would be just as tasty!  Go on  . . . treat yourself.  You know you want to.
