Deep Dish Peanut Butter Pie with Chocolate Covered Pretzel Crust

6 cups pretzels, crushed well (about 3 cups of crumbs)
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) melted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup milk chocolate chips

2/3 cup peanut butter
8 ounces softened cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped (or about 4 cups of whipped cream or cool whip)

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for topping

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Combine the pretzel crumbs, butter, and sugar. Press firmly into a springform pan, pressing all the way up the edges. Use the bottom of a glass to press it very firmly into the bottom. Bake for about 10 minutes, then sprinkle the bottom with the chocolate chips and bake five minutes more. Spread the melted chocolate chips with a spoon or offset spatula. Allow to cool completely before filling.

Beat together the peanut butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Whisk in about 1/2 cup of the whipped cream to lighten and then gently fold in 1 1/2 more cups of the whipped cream (this should leave you with two cups of whipped cream for the top). Pour the filling into the cooled crust. Lightly sweeten the remaining whipped cream (whisk in maybe about 1/4 cup powdered sugar) and spread onto the top. Top with Reese’s Cups if desired. This can be frozen or refrigerated until you want to eat it.

The Creamy Richness of Frozen Custard on Food Porn Friday

Frozen Vanilla Custard, Frozen custart, Frozed Dessert

Well, we are in the middle of summer and still trying to beat the heat by cooling our parched tongues with relief from something beyond iced cold. Ice cream is one of our all time favorite summer dessert treats, but there is another frozen dessert that is richer and far more luscious.

Although National Frozen Custard Day is celebrated on August 8, we couldn’t wait until then to drool over and feature this dense creamy magical goodness. So what’s the difference between ice cream and frozen custard? While they both are frozen, cool and creamy, ice cream is made from milk, cream (or both) while the ingredients of frozen custard are milk, cream, and egg yolks.

The ingredients needed for this Frozen Vanilla Custard from the good folks at MyRecipes.com are – 2 cups milk, 1/2 cup half-and-half, 1/2 cup sugar, 5 large egg yolks, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.
