What’s your favorite kind of pie? Can I tempt you with a Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Blondie Pie? It’s fun and delicious and definitely my kinda pie! It has a wonderfully soft buttery base sprinkled with pretty peanut butter eggs and dotted with white chocolate chips! And perfect for any springtime celebration!
Turns out my boys were away this past weekend, and when I ventured to the grocery store to pick up a few things to make for myself, I wandered around until I eventually ended up in the Easter aisle (no surprise there!). I spotted these adorable Spec-tacular Eggs — Peanut Butter M&M’s. Now mind you I have had my fair share of M&M’s whether they’re the plain, peanut, almond or pretzel, but I have never had the peanut butter kind before. And I love peanut butter!
This was my lucky day. You see I usually don’t bake with peanut butter as they guys don’t like it, but I saw a sweet and rare opportunity! I instantly picked up a bag and decided I would make a special treat that included these yummy morsels. Blondies. These would be great tossed into my basic blondie recipe. And I couldn’t wait to get home to make them! After getting all the ingredients ready, I reached for my baking pan. But at that instant something came over me, instead of baking my blondies in rectangular pan and slicing them into squares, I decided to change things up a bit and turn my blondies into a pie. And I’m so glad I did! Peanut Butter & White Chocolate Blondie Pie
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 (9.9 oz) bag M&M Peanut Butter Spec-tacular Eggs candy
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Generously spray a 8 or 9-inch glass pie plate with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
Then, in a large bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, mix the butter and sugars on medium speed until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition then add the vanilla and mix until well combined. With the mixer on low-speed, gradually add the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Remove bowl from mixer and add the peanut butter candy eggs and white chocolate chips and stir with a spoon until just combined. Pour the mixture into the prepared pie plate and spread evenly with a spatula.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until top is golden brown and set. Cool on a rack before cutting.
