You don't need a Brownie vest to whip up this Girl Scout–inspired creation.
- 1 16.5-oz. tube refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1¼ c. creamy peanut butter
- ½ c. packed light brown sugar
- ½ c. powdered sugar
- 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1½ c. heavy cream, divided
- ⅔ c. chocolate chips
- ¼ c. melted peanut butter
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Make the Crust: Press sugar cookie dough in an even layer to fill the bottom of a 9” springform pan. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes, then let cool completely.
- Make the Filling: In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, peanut butter, light brown sugar, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat with a hand mixer until light and fluffy. Set aside.
- In a separate large bowl, beat 1 cup heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Add half of the peanut butter mixture and beat with a hand mixer until evenly incorporated. Add the remaining peanut butter mixture and beat until fluffy. Spread mixture evenly into the cooled cookie crust. Freeze for 30 minutes, until the peanut butter layer is firm.
- Make the Ganache: Place chocolate chips in a medium heatproof bowl and set aside. Heat remaining ½ cup heavy cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. When bubbles begin to break the surface around the edges of the pan, turn off the heat. Pour hot cream over chocolate chips, whisking constantly until the sauce is smooth. Pour over the frozen peanut butter layer.
- Immediately, before the ganache sets, drizzle the melted peanut butter in a spiral pattern around the chocolate layer. Starting at the center of the pie, drag a toothpick gently in a straight line to the edge of the pie. Repeat to continue pattern all the way around the pie to resemble a spider web.
- Place pie in freezer for another 15 minutes. Remove from springform pan; slice and serve cold.
