I don’t have weird food cravings, but I have stubborn food cravings. This week, it was Reese’s peanut butter cups. At 11:30 at night. Thank goodness I had one in my room, otherwise I don’t know if I would’ve slept. It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does; … yeah. A couple years ago, three nights in a row, I woke up craving wedding cake so badly. It’s not like we had just gone to a wedding or something like that. Ijust wanted wedding cake. It was strange and incredibly annoying.
My cravings encourage my mind to come up with food ideas and these hand pies were born out of my Reese’s craving. I took the Reese’s concept and transitioned to buckeyes and put peanut butter filling in pie crust and then drizzled it in chocolate. It should be illegal. Crispy, buttery pie crust meets smooth peanut butter (Reese’s) filling. It’s been way too long since we’ve had a recipe like this.
Beat peanut butter, sugars, and vanilla together. Set aside.
