Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Walnut Cookie Pie

Weew... that is a mouthfull! I again stumbled upon this recipe on Something Sweet... this is the same blog that I found the fabulous Strawberry Lemonade bars on!

After clicking over to the Hershey website, I found the original recipe and decided to follow it instead of just doing a strictly PB pie.

So I'm just about ready to stir in the peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, and walnuts when I realize that I doubled the amount of flour. Crap. What to do? do I scrap the batter and start again or double up the remaining ingredients and make not only a pie for dessert tonight, but some pie-cakes (aka: pour the batter into cupcake cups and see what happens!).

I chose to double up! I baked off the pie first (it took 55 minutes) and then popped in my 24 pie-cakes. They baked for 25 minutes and were nice and golden brown! They didn't rise at all so it'll be perfect to add in a bit of whipped cream or ice cream on top... after it's warmed up so the chips get soft!

This is such a yummy & quick dessert! I served the pie with whipped cream after heating each slice for 10 seconds. I'm sure it would be equally good with ice cream.

The only adaptation I made was that I chose to use a chocolate cookie crust instead of the graham cracker crust. It adds in a extra kick of chocolate & looks pretty too!

Enjoy :)
