Sugar High Cheesecake Pie

KazpieLRBack in 2005 our church, started the annual tradition of “Pie Day.”  The motto was bake a pie, bring a pie or simply come and eat pie or was it “Pie today, pie tomorrow, pie forever”?

Regardless, back then, my boys were 5 and 3, and I had forgotten all about pie day until about 10 pm the night before.  Searching the freezer I found some dark chocolate and pecans, and deliciousness was created.  I wasn’t aware that the pie I brought would be entered into a competition so when I was announced a first place winner I was surprised to say the least.  When asked for my recipe for the church website,  I panicked as I kind of just threw a bunch of ingredients in the pie crust and didn’t do any measuring.pieplaqueLR

Kazden has been eyeing my Pie Day Plaque for many years now.  I knew it was just a matter of time before he tried to take my title.  His youth pastor gave the kids an idea for Pie Day, he said that if it was him, he would just throw all kinds of candy in a pie and bake it.  That was all the inspiration Kazden needed.  Sugar High Cheesecake Pie was created.  This time we took care to write down the recipe.  Just about any kind of candy bars would be great in this cheesecake-pie.  Halloween candy would be perfect (we had already eaten all of ours so we used regular sized candy bars.)pcandywrappersLR

Although he didn’t take home the trophy (this year), we all thought he should have won… this is one gooooood pie!prebakepieLR

For Crust:

Mix crackers, cookies and butter together and divide mixture in half.  Press into the bottom of two small pie pans.

For Cheesecake:

  • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 10 mini-Butterfingers, crushed

Blend cheesecake ingredients with a food processor or hand mixer until well combined.  Divide mixture into two pie pans.

For Topping:

  • 1 Twix
  • 1 Milky Way
  • 2 Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • 1 package Reece’s Pieces
  • 1 package M&M’s

Chop Twix, Milky Way and Peanut Butter Cups and spread evenly over both cheesecakes.  Sprinkle Reece’s Pieces and M&M’s evenly over both cheesecakes.  Bake in a preheated 325º oven, 30 minutes or until cheesecake is set.  Refrigerate overnight before serving.
