  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Melt the butter in the butter warmer or saucepan. Place the cookies in the work bowl of the food processor and process until finely ground. Place the cookie crumbs and salt in the medium-size bowl and stir in the melted butter. Press the mixture evenly across the bottom of the pie plate and all the way up the sides of the pan, packing it tightly with your fingertips so it is even and compacted. Bake until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside to cool. Combine the heavy cream, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla in the large bowl and beat with the electric mixer until it holds stiff peaks. Place the peanut butter in the small bowl and stir in one quarter of the whipped cream. Gently fold the lightened peanut butter mixture back into the remaining whipped cream. Scrape the filling into the pie shell, smooth with the spatula, and refrigerate until firm, at least 3 hours.

  2. MINUTES EXTRA: It really takes on takes only 5 minutes extra to make the classic fudge topping for this pie. Finely chop 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate and place in a small heatproof bowl. Heat 1/2 cup heavy cream in a small saucepan or butter warmer until almost boiling. Remove from the heat and whisk in the chocolate until smooth. Cool the topping until just warm to the touch. Spread it over the chilled pie with a rubber spatula. Refrierate until firm, at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours.
