Peanut Butter Honey “Bee’s Knees” Pie


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?

I made White Chocolate Wonderful Ice Cream

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…

    I think I’m pretty much the last person on earth to have never seen Downton Abbey. Strange, because I’m sure I’d love it…I’m sure we’ll watch it someday. We’ve been watching The Sopranos this summer– from the first season all the way to the last (which we’re in right now), so that’s been our pretty big tv commitment for the summer, ha. We’ve even been taking the dvds on vacation with us!

    Ha! We are totally on the same tv wavelength. Just asked my husband if he was going to join me for Downton Abby or I was going to start watching it myself. We watched Orange is the New Black (I loved the book) and I’m obsessed with Catfish. But still need to see the movie!

    Pretzel Crusts…amazing. This will probably sound terrible, but years ago when I worked at a camp we made this pretzel crust + strawberries/strawberry jello + whipped cream topping concoction. It was so good, I still think about it!
    Whew. That comment wore me out.
