Peanut Butter Pie

1/4 c. butter, melted
2 c. creme filled chocolate sandwich cookies, finely crushed
1 package (8oz) cream cheese, softened
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/4 c. whipping cream
sugar to taste
chocolate chips and whipping cream, melted

Mix the crumbled cookies and melted butter. Press the crumb mixture firmly onto the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Chill the pie shell while preparing the mixture.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in peanut butter and sugar. In a separate bowl, beat whipping cream until firm peaks. Add sugar to taste to the whipping cream while you're beating it. Fold in whipping cream to the cream cheese and peanut butter mixture. Spoon into crust.

In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate chips and whipping cream for 30 seconds. You can either pour it over the whole top or make your own decorative design.

The recipe says to only chill for 2 hours, but I find there's a much fuller flavor if you let it chill overnight.
