I recently discovered that Oreo cookies are vegan.  Mind blown!  Having a dairy allergy, I’ve basically avoided anything that I thought had milk in it – most packaged cookies included. While Oreos are made in a facility that handles milk – meaning there is a chance that trace amounts can end up in products through cross-contamination – there aren’t any dairy or animal-derived ingredients in the cookies.

It’s kind of dangerous knowing that these sandwich cookies are on the list of things I can eat (I’ll take my chances with the slim potential for cross-contamination).  So you bet your tushie I grabbed a package of cookies during my last shopping trip!

I also ended up getting a mini bottle of Sheep Dog Peanut Butter Whiskey free through Ibotta. I’ve wanted to try PB whiskey, but didn’t know how to drink it besides straight up. Then I thought about making a boozy vegan peanut butter pie with a sandwich cookie crust.

Now, this is the only peanut butter whiskey I’ve tried so I have nothing to compare it to.  It doesn’t have an in-your-face peanut butter flavor.  It’s like the essence of PB in a smooth, but sweet whiskey.  So if you’re making a boozy peanut butter dessert, such as this pie, it’s a good whiskey to use.  It adds to the peanut butter flavor without overpowering the creamy PB in the pie.

Besides getting to enjoy a delicious, dairy-free, peanut butter flavored dessert with just a touch of whiskey in it, this pie is also no-bake.  Perfect for this time of year when the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven and heat up the house!

The first thing we need to do is prepare the crust.  You can use a premade Oreo cookie crust in a pinch, but homemade is always better!  Plus, making your own gives you an excuse to buy cookies!

All you need to do to make this cookie crust is crush a bunch of cookies and mix in some melted butter.  Then, press the cookies into a pie plate and freeze until you’re ready to fill it.

The filling is quite easy to make, too.  In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat cream cheese (I use Tofutti) and powdered sugar together until it’s nice and smooth.  Then, mix in the peanut butter, whipped topping, and the whiskey.  And that’s it!  There’s your filling!

Now we’re going to grab the pie crust from the freezer and pour the filling into it.  Spread it evenly into the crust and refrigerate it for at least 2 hours so it gets firm.  You can also speed up the process by popping the pie back into the freezer for 1 hour.

Once the pie is firm and ready to serve, you can dress it up with a drizzle of melted peanut butter and dark chocolate.  Then, sprinkle some crushed peanuts on top and slice!

I don’t think anyone would know this pie was missing the dairy unless you told them!  But if you’d rather use dairy ingredients in this recipe, they can easily be swapped.  Also, if you have kiddos who can’t resist the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, obviously omit the whiskey from the pie.
