Oreo Peanut Butter Pie Cups

Much as I love involved, intricate cake decorating and classical pastry with lots of elements (and you know I do), there are times when I just want a delicious sweet bite without a lot of work involved. I concoct desserts like this on the fly, usually about an hour before I cook dinner, with whatever ingredients I have on hand.

I've decided to start a new series on this blog called 'Five or Fewer'. These recipes will contain limited ingredients (five or less, of course) and they won't have you monitoring a candy thermometer or stressing over correctly tempering crème anglaise.

These peanut butter pie cups are my first in this series. They are rich and decadent and the Oreos provide a nice crunchy contrast to the smooth filling.

Want to give it a whirl? Here are your five ingredients: cream cheese, creamy peanut butter, sweetened condensed milk, heavy whipping cream, and Oreo 'Double Stuf' cookies. That's it!

Crushed 'Double Stuf' cookies will give you a nice crust at the bottom of the cup because the crème  filling makes the cookie crumbs cling together. One Oreo on top makes the dessert look pretty - and makes a nice spoon too (guilty!).

This is a good dessert for those weeknights when you need to decompress, perhaps after you've eaten dinner on a TV tray while watching The X-Files (or other) reruns. Haven't we all been there?

Oreo Peanut Butter Pie Cups
Yields 4 servings

Please note that sweetened condensed milk was used in this recipe. It is often confused with evaporated milk, so double check before you begin this recipe.

12 Oreo ‘Double Stuf’ cookies, divided
1 cup heavy cream
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup creamy-style peanut butter
7 ounces (1/2 can) plus one tablespoon sweetened condensed milk

Place 8 cookies in a zip-top bag and crush them to fine crumbs with a rolling pin; divide crumbs between four 7.5 ounce dessert cups, about 3 tablespoons per cup.

In a large bowl, beat the heavy cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.

Place the cream cheese and peanut butter in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Add 7 ounces sweetened condensed milk and beat again. Fold in half of the whipped cream. Spoon or pipe the mixture over the cookie crumbs in the dessert cups.

Fold in the remaining 1 tablespoon condensed milk with the whipped cream. Spoon or pipe the cream over the filling in each cup. Garnish each cup with 1 whole chocolate sandwich cookie.
