THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS LINKY PARTY #65 (HOMEMADE PIES) and Butterfinger Cream Pie


THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS Linky Party #65
Homemade Pies - National Pie Day is Jan 23rd (Pie Recipes)
Butterfinger Cream Pie

I am not a famous pie maker, well let's say I am a newbie at trying to make pies. I have tried my hand at a few in the last few months. They are kind'of fun, still not my forte' but I am learning to like it! I have tried a few cheesecakes (and yes they fell or cracked in the middle) and I do make a few dinner like pies (Hamburger Pie and Chicken Pot Pie, that everyone loves). So, for today I picked a super duper easy homemade pie that I hope you will love.

Butterfinger Cream Pie
adapted by me - found at Food.com

1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese
1 (12 oz) carton Cool Whip
8 mini-size Butterfinger Candy Bars, chopped/crushed

(you can buy a pre-made crust or make one from scratch)
1-1/4 crumbs graham cracker crumbs and/or chocolate wafer crumbs (I used half & half)
3 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted

Prepare your crust first, by mixing the graham cracker crumbs (or chocolate wafer crumbs), sugar and melted butter with a fork. Pack mixture firmly into a pie tin or form-spring pan. Bake at 350 for about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool to the touch before you fill.
In an electric mixer blend together cream cheese and cool whip , until well blended. Add in about 6 or 7 crushed butterfinger bars and combined (keeping out the add'l 2 bars for the topping). Fill the prepared crust with the mixture and then sprinkle the top with the remaining 2 crushed butterfinger candy bars. Chill in freezer overnight, before serving.
