Not only was this one of the best pies I’ve ever had, it also happened to be made especially for my son, Isaac’s, 10th birthday. My son is a big fan of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and, like me, he doesn’t care for cake. So when I asked him what he wanted for his birthday dessert he said a pie and that I could surprise him with the flavor. Well, once he said that, I knew immediately that I was going to make him this Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie!
I actually made two different Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pies but this is the one that turned out the best. Although the other one was delicious, I should have made it in a bigger pan and it probably would have turned out better. For this pie, it uses cream cheese and real whipped cream for the filling which kept it light and fluffy. The top, as you can see, is topped with chocolate ganache and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Heaven!
I still can’t believe my first-born is 10 today! It feels just like yesterday that I was cuddling him in my arms and kissing his little neck. You never know what kind of person your children will grow up to be like, but I know that my son is growing up to be one beautiful person. He is kind, smart, sensitive, caring, thoughtful, and my heart has never been the same since he came into my life. Even though he turns 10 today, he will always be my little boy!
Happy Birthday Isaac! I love you more than you’ll ever know!
