I entered this pie in our county fair, and it was selected grand champion. Who can resist a tempting chocolate crumb crust and a creamy filling with big peanut butter taste? Be prepared to take an empty pan home when you serve this pie at your next potluck. —Doris Doherty, Albany, Oregon

Optional: Grated chocolate or chocolate cookie crumbs
In a small bowl, combine cookie crumbs and sugar; stir in butter. Press onto the bottom and up the side of a 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
For filling, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Gently spoon into crust. Garnish with chocolate or cookie crumbs if desired. Store in refrigerator.
