Cookie Crusted Peanut Butter Pretzel Pies

I am in love with these simple peanut butter pies with cookie crusts! I created this recipe as inspiration for the Cool Whip Fan Dessert of the Month Contest on Facebook.

There will be one ONE Grand winner each month till Dec 31,2012. Please note photos should be used for inspiration purposes only, don’t forget to use your own. Visit for complete details outlined in the Official Rules.

Let’s take a look at the little pies I created ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s my line up of ingredients. Nice and simple!

I used Snackwells Fudge Pretzels in my dessert. Mmmm!

Start by baking 1/4 cup cookie dough into small pie plates or ramekins.

Take your Snackwells Fudge Pretzels and…..

….crush them into your pudding/Cool Whip mix.

Give it all a nice stir.

Place dollops of filling over cooled cookie crust.

Here you have adorable simple little pies! Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚


Cookie Crusted Peanut Butter Pretzel Pies

1 cup pre-made cookie dough of your choice

1 small box Vanilla Instant Pudding mix

2 cups cold milk

1 1/2 cups Cool Whip

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

2 packages of Snackwells Chocolate Covered Pretzels, crushed

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Divide cookie dough between 4 mini pie plates or small ramekins. Bake until baked through 12-15 minutes. Let cool completely.

2. Whisk together the pudding mix and cold milk until thick. Fold in Cool Whip and peanut butter. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Spoon filling over each cookie crust and top with a chocolate pretzel. Serve cold. Save remaining pie filling for another use.

Makes 4 pies


Have a great day! Come back soon ๐Ÿ™‚

        If you can get heavy whipping cream, you can make your own! I prefer it to cool whip when making sweet desserts. I simply whip it into whipped cream and omit all or most of the sugar. That way it cuts back on the overall sweetness.

    The fact that this Peanut butter Pretzel pie looks so delicious and is SO easy to make is a little bitter sweet … sweet that I’m going to want it all the time now ๐Ÿ˜‰ lol but bitter because its swimsuit season … hmmm looks like I’ll have to invest in a coverup ๐Ÿ˜‰
