SOMETHING TO LIVE FOR PIE RECIPE
White Chocolate Peanut Butter Chess Pie
Submitted by Christina Cisneros

Crust:
20 peanut butter sandwich cookies
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
In a food processor, blend the cookies to crumbs. Combine the crumbs, melted butter, and sugar until combined. Press into a pie plate and bake at 325 for 15 minutes.
Pie Filling:
1  cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 eggs, beaten
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tbsp vanilla extract
8 oz white chocolate chips
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients with the exception of the white chocolate chips and mix until well combined. Sprinkle the white chocolate chips over the pie crust, and pour the filling mix over the crust and chips. At 350, bake for approximately 45 to 50 minutes until pie jiggles slightly in the center. If the pie or crust begins to get too brown, cover with aluminum foil. When finished, cool completely before adding the topping.
White Chocolate Mousse Topping:
4 egg yolks
3 tablespoons sugar
1 cup white chocolate chips
2 cups heavy cream, divided
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
Heat 1 cup of heavy cream in a saucepan. In a small bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and bright yellow. Gently stream in a small amount of hot cream into the egg and sugar mixture to temper the yolks. Add egg, sugar, and cream mixture back into the rest of the cream and cook over medium heat for approximately 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened. Cool completely.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip the remaining 1 cup of heavy cream with the cream of tartar to stiff peaks. Fold the whipped cream gently into the white chocolate mousse mixture until well combined with no streaks. Top the pie liberally with this mixture. Garnish with crushed up peanut butter sandwich cookies.
