Monster Cookie Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pie

Monster Cookie Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pie

Preface: This recipe has absolutely no healthy substitutes. If I’m going to make an M&M + chocolate chip & oatmeal cookie stuffed with peanut butter cheesecake filling, I’m going all out.

I brought this for girl’s night and was expecting to have a ton of leftovers because of how dense it is, but it was almost all gone! My heart grew four times its normal size as I saw my friends going in for seconds.
