Ingredients

for the crust:

  • 2 cups crushed pretzels* approx. 4 cups whole pretzels
  • 3 tbsp cane sugar
  • 10 tbsp butter melted

for the pie:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup Hood cottage cheese
  • 3 tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup peanuts chopped
  • Optional: 2 tbsp chocolate chopped

Instructions

  • Crush pretzels in a blender or food processor, then add sugar and butter and mix to combine.
  • Grease a pie pan with coconut oil or nonstick spray, then use your hands or a spatula to press crust into the pie pan, then place the pan in the freezer.
  • Next, whip the whipping cream until stiff peaks form, approx. 4 minutes; then, add sugar, cottage cheese and peanut butter and stir to combine. Last, stir in the peanuts by hand.
  • Scoop whipped cream out and into the crust, smoothing it out with a spoon or spatula. Top the filling with extra pretzels, peanuts and chocolate, then place the pie into the freezer for at least 4 hours.
  • Remove pie 10 minutes before serving so it can thaw a bit. Then, cut and serve.
  • Enjoy!
