Butterfinger Pie

Today we’re sharing a recipe for Butterfinger Pie.  This pie was created a whim by adding butterfinger candies to our peanut butter pie and turned out amazing. It’s now become a favorite in our family dessert rotation.   

All about Butterfinger Pie

This pie comes together so quickly and easily.  You can make a homemade graham cracker crust but if you’re short on a time, a store bought one works great too.  Just let your cream cheese soften and your cool whip to thaw and you’re ready to make Butterfinger Pie.    

If you refrigerate this pie after you make it, then it is a fluffier pie like many other pudding or cool whip pies.  We prefer to store the pie in the freezer and to take it out to cut pieces for serving as needed.  When you store it in the freezer it almost has the texture of ice cream.  So, then you feel like you’re eating a Butterfinger ice cream pie.  It is hands down delicious and so refreshing.

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

We’re still hanging onto summer here in Oregon, however, not for too much longer.  While summer and the hot weather are both still here, we are nearing the end of summer according to the yearly calendar.  That being said, we will continue to make homemade vanilla ice cream as long as we can.  Making homemade ice cream is really as simple as mixing together the ingredients and finishing it in your ice cream maker.  We really enjoy making vanilla ice cream because the toppings and mix-ins are so versatile.  Whether you top your ice cream with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, sprinkles, or add it to a root beer float.  But just a bowl of plain old vanilla ice cream is hard to pass up!
