Peanut butter cookie pie

Hello everyone! Just writing another column because I’m bored – and my parents are both sick. I thought I’d give them some help this week since they’re a little tired.

Speaking of sick people, my grandma Genie (many of you know her as Gerene) got a hip replacement last week so she’s been out of commission, too. I hope everyone in my family is healthy again soon.

Before everyone got sick or cut open, my mom, Grandma and I also went on a trip to Grand View Lodge near Nisswa, Minn., for a few days. Even though the lake wasn’t the greatest smelling and wasn’t exactly warm, there was definitely fun stuff to do.

There were two indoor water parks, great food selections, ziplining for my mom and me, and also me, my grandma and my mom all went banana tubing. Our mistake was sitting in the front, so we got absolutely soaked, and I almost fell off three times.

Speaking of great food, Sundae Brew recently opened in downtown Hillsboro. I’ve been really excited to have a fun place where my friends and I can grab a snack. I have yet to try the cheese curds and most of the other deep-fried foods, but I definitely suggest the mozzarella sticks. I also really like their ice cream; even though they use the same type of cones as Dairy Queen, the ice cream at Sundae Brew is better, in my opinion.

It’s a very good place for a small meal with some friends. I plan to meet my mom for lunch there today (Friday) and try the cheese curds. Mom and I both love cheese curds.

Also, before I talk about the recipe, I wanted to thank all of you who are encouraging me to write more columns.

Anyways, this pie – which is actually a giant cookie baked in a pie pan – is really good, in my opinion. The peanut butter cups really bring out a flavor to add to the pie along with the M&Ms. It tastes like a really incredible cookie but is easy enough to make – even when Mom is sick.
