I am very excited about this.  When I first started a little over a year ago, I wasn’t sure if I would stick with it.  But I love it!  I can’t wait to write another 100.  For this special post, I am sharing an easy and delicious pie that is sure to be made over and over again.

First there was Nutella.  Then Biscoff.  Then Speculoos Cookie Butter.  I didn’t think it could get any better than these.  Until there was Crunchy Cookie Butter.  What?! My wonderful friend Leslie came over to visit the baby and I and brought me a bag of Trader Joe’s goodies.  Crunchy Cookie butter was inside.

Sure, I could make this myself with regular Cookie Butter and crushed Speculoos cookies.  But why would I want to do that?  It just wouldn’t be as good anyway.  Of course my mind starting going a mile a minute trying to come up with what I could make with this amazing spread.

Not long after the Crunchy Cookie Butter discovery, I got an email from Real Women of Philadelphia with a recipe for Peanut Butter Pie.  What’s great about these spreads is that you can replace peanut butter in just about any recipe.  That is what I did here.

This recipe is incredibly easy with a minimal amount of ingredients.  It is a quick dessert to throw together to enjoy in just a couple of hours.

I know…this looks really good!  I highly suggest you take a ride to Trader Joe’s, buy Crunchy Cookie Butter, and make this pie!
