Did I Mention Bacon?
(yup, kosher bacon)
It’s a simple and fun process! I mean, how many recipes ask you to line a cast iron skillet with 2 pounds of bacon??? I know it may seem crazy to wrap bacon around a sweet peanut butter cookie pie but it really works. You get the sweet, the salty ANDÂ the crunchy.
The pie bakes for 45 minutes, until the bacon is a beautiful dark brown color and super crunchy on the outside. As the bacon cools, it will lose some of that crunch so reheat it under the broiler if making this pie in advance.
Like I said, you’re welcome!
Just look at how that bacon wraps around the peanut butter cookie pie. Oh my!
I love to serve this pie right out of the cast iron skillet but can also slide it out of your pan to show off that bacon. Alllllllll that bacon.
There are many types of kosher bacon on the market, including lamb, beef, veal and turkey bacon. You can also use traditional bacon for this recipe if you don't keep kosher.
The peanut butter cookie pie can be baked without the bacon for a meat-free option. You can also use butter in place of margarine to make this pie dairy.
