Yummy New Dessert!

My mom has been talking all week about a new recipe she was going to try out for our dessert for Easter. I didn't pay a whole lot of attention, because as many of you know I have been working out at The Fitness Center really hard and doing Weight Watchers and have lost 40 lbs. I try not to 'think' too much about desserts these days. LOL!

Well... I splurged and had a piece of this pie yesterday and OH MY GOODNESS! It is yummy! I asked my mom for the recipe so I could share it with all of you. The best part - it's my favorite kind of recipe - EASY! LOL! No baking required.

Here is the recipe... and if you try it, I'd love to hear what you think!

"Girls Night In Strawberry Peanut Butter Pie"

1 1/4 cups pretzels, crushed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups Cool-Whip, thawed
1- 21 oz. Lucky Leaf Premium Strawberry Pie Filling 
(my mom says she used two cans as one didn't seem to be enough)

Combine the crushed pretzels and sugar, then stir in the melted butter. Press crumb mixture onto the bottom and sides of a 10 inch pie plate. Cover and chill. Beat together the peanut butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed. Fold in the Cool-Whip. Spoon 1/2 cup of Strawberry Pie Filling over the crust. Spread the Peanut Butter Mixture carefully over the pie filling. Top with the remaining Strawberry Pie Filling. Cover and chill 2 hours before serving. (Mom says she sprayed Saran wrap with Pam spray to cover it, so it wouldn't stick.)

Makes 10 servings. 

Enjoy! It is TASTY (as my friend Melissa always says!) LOL!
