Peanut Butter Pie

One of my mother-in-law's favorite treats is peanut butter pie, and can you honestly blame her? A good peanut butter pie is fantastic! Here is a good recipe Papa Ward found and passed on.
4oz cream cheese really soft
1 cup+3 tablespoons of powdered sugar
1/2 cup of milk
10 oz cool whip. Really defrosted!
2 graham cracker crusts
1/2 cup peanuts- finely chopped

Whip cream cheese at low speed, beat in sugar, andpeanut butter.
Slowly beat in milk.
Fold in cool whip
Pour into crusts.

Recipe makes 2 pies.

I add a little more cream cheese and more peanut butter.  About 3/4 - 1 cup total.  I like to do about half chunky and the rest smooth for some added texture.  I use the 8 oz cool whip & that's enough for one pie.  If you want to add some additional sweetness, melt chocolate chips and spread across the top!
