Rule of 1 – Peanut Butter Pie

What do you do after noshing on a variety of savory appetizers, dips, and finger foods? You balance it out with a slice of creamy peanut butter pie (aka ” Rule of 1 pie” at my house).  You don’t think about the calories and you most definitely don’t glimpse at the pedometer you’re wearing that is grossly under the recommended daily steps because tomorrow is another day in which you can hit the treadmill with vim and vigor.

This recipe can’t be any easier as it calls for 1 of every ingredient and there are only 6. It’s an easy list to store to memory and a great dessert to make when you’re short on time. When using a purchased pie crust it’s pretty much effortless. Then again, crushing a bag of Oreos or any other chocolate sandwich cookie can be considered exercise, right? Sure.
