In preparation for the dozen or so students who are coming over for dinner tonight in honor of Saturday’s Putnam exam, I made the pie pictured here. I made a bunch of pies, actually, because pie is really good. And then I thought “Pie is a mathy kind of dessert. We need a pie category on our Blog!” The premier recipe is this Chocolate-Peanut Butter Ice-Cream Pie by Heather Eckman. Heather is one of our seniors, and she made this pie for a contest last March 14. It didn’t win, but it should have, because it tastes absolutely amazing and, as a bonus, is really easy to make. Thanks for giving us permission to share this recipe!
Chocolate Peanut-Butter Ice-Cream Pie by Heather Eckman
Makes two pies
1 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
6 eggs (I use pasteurized egg-substitute because the eggs don’t get cooked)
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 1/2 cups chocolate ice-cream (or vanilla, should you prefer that)
2 9-inch graham cracker crusts (or whatever crust you prefer)
Cream the butter with the sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each egg. (Or pour in the egg-substitute in a few batches, mixing in between). Add the peanut butter and ice-cream, mixing well. Place in the crusts and freeze.
See? Easy as…nah, I won’t say it.
