Summer Road Trip :: Scavenging and Searching!

So I found myself in Cleveland last week on vacation, and couldn't resist a quick side trip to the Arhaus Furniture clearance store. It's the only one of its kind in the U.S., and located close to their company headquarters.  Obviously not terribly convenient for us, but might be worth it if you are furnishing a big space!

The Perfect Summer Dessert for Chocolate Lovers

This is a yummy and super easy chilled pie recipe that is a crowd pleaser! 
Make the pudding filling and set aside.  For the crust, melt 1/2 cup of butter and crush up a bunch of peanut butter sandwich cookes (16-20). ( I've used the Girl Scout cookie version and I've also used Nutter Butters.  You could probably do it with other cookie varieties, but I like the chocolate/peanut butter combo.)  Mix up the cookies crumbs with the butter, and press into a pie pan to form the crust.  Then add the pudding.  Chill until you are ready to serve.  It won't last long:)
