This was the dessert I made last Saturday night. I needed to think of something non-chocolate since I gave up Chocolate for lent. This was very good but extremely rich. Everyone tried some, but most people couldnt finish their piece. The crust was awesome!!! I think everyone kept eating the crust and leaving the filling. You have to really like peanut butter too, sine that mostly what this was made of. For all you peanut butter fans...heres the recipe for this:
Prep Time:15 min
Total Time:4 hr 45 min
24 NUTTER BUTTER Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
5 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
