Easy Peanut Butter & Pretzel Pie 

Ingredients: – 1 1/2 cups crushed pretzel – 1/4 cup granulated sugar – 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted – 1 cup creamy peanut butter

– 8 oz cream cheese, softened – 1 cup powdered sugar – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1 1/2 cups heavy cream – 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional, for garnish)

Instructions: 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). 2. In a bowl, mix together the crushed pretzels, granulated sugar, and melted butter until well combined.

1. Press the pretzel mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish to form the crust. 2. Bake the crust for 8-10 minutes, then let it cool completely.

1. In a separate bowl, beat together the peanut butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. 2. In another bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.

1. Gently fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture until fully combined. 2. Pour the peanut butter filling into the cooled pretzel crust and smooth the top with a spatula.

1. Optionally, melt the chocolate chips and drizzle over the top of the pie for decoration. 2. Refrigerate the pie for at least 4 hours, or until set.
