It’s a peanut butter cookie loaded with mini marshmallows and baked in a pie crust! It is like my childhood dreams in pie form!
Imagine a soft peanut butter cookie dotted with bits of toasted marshmallow and nestled in a flaky pie crust. Actually, don’t imagine it, get to baking so you can try it for yourself!
I found Alli very early on in my blogging journey. She and I were both relatively new to blogging and it was encouraging to have somebody to learn alongside.
Then Alli’s blog took off and went crazy. She started producing videos too, in fact you may recognize her hands from mine. 😉
She has a sweet tooth that rivals mine and she makes the most beautiful baked goods. So when I heard she was working on a book of desserts, I knew it would be great.
She named it Untraditional Desserts and it revolves around flavors and ideas that are familiar, but with a fun twist. She sent me a copy before it was released and my stomach growled as I flipped through the pages.
This is a time of year where sweets are everywhere and I really don’t need to be making anything extra. It’s birthday season in my family and the holidays too, so even my sweet tooth can be overwhelmed.
However the pictures looked just to good to not bake a little something from the book sooner rather than later. I had a few recipes marked as possibilities and then I stumbled on the marshmallow peanut butter cookie pie.
Of course I had to make it, what choice did I have? Luckily it was as good as the picture suggested!
Peanut butter treats usually get my husband’s attention and soft peanut butter cookies are one of his favorites. So even though he was stuffed from dinner, he still needed to have a taste.
Little Dude loved it too. He spotted it when he came home from school and could barely wait until after dinner for a taste.
