Bavarian Pretzel and Peanut Butter Pie

To make the pie you will need the following ingredients;

·         ¼ cups packed brown sugar

·         1 ½ cups crushed pretzels (can be salted or unsalted depending on preference)

·         ½ cup melted butter

·         ½ cup crunch peanut butter

·         1 cup confectioners’ sugar

·         8 oz. whipped topping

·         3 oz. cream cheese

Begin by making the pretzel pie crust.   To do so, take the crushed pretzels and combine them with the brown sugar and melted butter.  Once the pretzels are well coated with the sugar and butter press the mixture into a 9 inch pie plate being sure to cover the bottom and sides of the pan evenly.  Bake the pretzel pie crust in a preheated 400 Degree F oven for 5 minutes and then remove it from the heat.   Chill the crust in the refrigerator while you begin on the filling.

To make the pie filling take a large electric mixing bowl and add into it the cream cheese, whipped topping, confectioners’ sugar and peanut butter.   Blend it one medium until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Then remove the pretzel crust from the refrigerator and spoon the peanut butter mixture on top of the crust.   If desired, garnish with shaved dark chocolate and a dollop of whipped topping.
