Can we talk about TV for a minute? For my birthday, Jesse got me a Kindle Fire.
I was super excited to have an ebook reader, but then I learned that it comes with a month of free Amazon Prime… That includes the free streaming…
Instead of voraciously reading the classics like I originally intended to, I’ve been watching Downton Abbey. I get it, I’m like 5 years too late. But I’m loving it. To further my recent TV obsession, on Friday night I made Jesse watch 3 episodes of “Orange is the New Black.” Awesome.
So since I like being late to the party, let me tell you about something I made for a party a while back. You remember the Peanut Butter Throwdown, right?
But I also made pie, because pie is always a good idea.
Let me tell you about one of them because you know what else is a good idea? Pretzel crusts.
Along with being obsessed with multiple TV shows, I’m also really into pretzel crusts. I love the salty and sweet combination, so in pie form it takes it to a whole new level.
Peanut Butter Honey Pie
1 1/4 cup pretzel crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Bee’s Knees peanut butter
4 oz cream cheese, softened
7 oz sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
4 tbsp honey
First make your crust by mixing together pretzel crumbs, butter and sugar. Press into a 9” pie dish and place in the freezer until ready to use.
Next, beat together peanut butter, cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk. Beat 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream until if holds firm peaks. Fold whipped cream into peanut butter mixture until combined. Set aside.
Beat remaining 1 cup of whipped cream. Once it start to form peaks, add in 4 tbsp honey.
Next assemble the pie. Spread peanut butter mixture into the pie crust. Top with honey whipped cream. Chill for a few hours. Serve cold.
Ok now you can forgive me while I go crawl into bed to watch more Downton Abbey.
Which shows are you into these days?
I also recently discovered Catfish. That’s totally amazing…
