Blog Party Pie!

So, I'm visiting these other blogs that have cute pictures and decorations and look all *festive* and I'm thinking, "Gee. I wish I knew how to do all that!"
In my six-plus months of blogging, I have learned a few things - I now know what "lurking" means. I can link to other blogs and websites. I can even post a picture, if it's already on my hard drive or disk thingy. However, I cannot take a picture with our digital camera and get it from the camera to my computer to get it to my blog. I need hubby for that!
And my dear husband was around Sunday afternoon to help me with the picture for my last post. However, he's in Chicago until late this Thursday, so no more pictures for the blog party...

Now, I have a choice. I can sit and pout because my blog isn't as cute as some of the others you're visiting. OR, I can do what I'm good at and party with yummy treats in lieu of decorations.

Are you looking for a delicious recipe to share with your girlfriends? Do you love peanut butter and chocolate??? Here's a recipe for you and seven to nine of your girlfriends (Depending how big you want your slices to be...This is a rich pie. The weak in spirit may want to invite nine friends and cut it into ten pieces!) to gather around to enjoy, while you giggle and enjoy one another's company. Or, since it's the week of the Ultimate Blog Party, I suppose you could all gather around a large screen computer and read blogs as you lavish the creamy pie!

Here's what you need:
1 ready-made chocolate pie crust
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
grated chocolate or chocolate cookie crumbs

Here's what you do:
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Gently spoon into crust. Garnish with chocolate or cookie crumbs. Refrigerate.

Here's the best part:
Gather your girlfriends together, slice the pie, pour your coffee or water, and sit down to enjoy - the pie, the friendships, and the blogs.

Party on!!!

I love anything with cream cheese and of course chocolate! Thanks for stopping by my place. I haven't had time to do a lot of fancy things for my blog party either. Some others are holding contests and the like. I'll be back to visit:)

Sounds like a great pie! I haven't had much time to party but this has been fun. I hope they do it again.
