No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

If you are in need of a quick dessert or just need a quick sweet fix this is the treat for you.  You can throw it together in a just a few minutes and you don't even have to turn on your oven!  But beware you will be tempted to eat the whole thing, so make this only when you have friends to share it with or you will hate me for ruining your diet :)
 No Bake Peanut Butter Pie
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 package softened cream cheese
(I used fat free because it makes me feel better about the other million calories but any kind works great :)
1 tub cool-whip
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 prepared graham cracker crust 
Homemade Magic Shell (recipe here) or melted chocolate to drizzle (optional)
To make mix first five ingredients with a hand or stand mixer, spoon creamy goodness into your prepared crust, drizzle with chocolate and then put in the freezer to set. This happens really quickly, in just 20 minutes or so it's nice and firm!!!
Serve straight from the freezer.  Don't worry it doesn't freeze solid, the freezer just keeps the pie cold and gives this treat a silky texture.  Yummm!  Trust me this could not be easier and your family will think you slaved away for hours.  Milk the sympathy for all it's worth and have an extra piece of pie for all your "hard work". 

                                                                    Enjoy, Lindsey :)
