RITZ Humble Pie with Peanut Butter Mousse

Shared by: Kelly

Serendipity 3 is a restaurant in New York City that was featured in a movie called Serendipity. Our visit to this restaurant was one of the highlights of our trip in 2019.
I felt so lucky to find this recipe and recreate it at home.


48 RITZ Crackers, divided
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
Pie Filling:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped
1 cup heavy cream, whipped, divided*


1Heat oven to 300 degrees F.
2To make the crust, pulse 44 of the RITZ Crackers in a food processor to make about 1 1/2 cups crumbs. In a medium bowl, blend together the crumbs, cocoa, and sugar. Mix in melted butter and peanut butter. Press mixture firmly into bottom and up sides of 9-inch pie pan. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, then cool completely on rack.
3To make the filling, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl with mixer until smooth. Stir in the peanuts. Carefully fold a total of 1 1/2 cups whipped cream into the peanut mixture in three additions, until the mixture is a uniform color and no streaks remain.
4Spread the filling into the cooled crust. Top with remaining whipped cream. Coarsely crush remaining 4 crackers and sprinkle over the top. Chill completely, at least 2 hours or overnight. Store covered in refrigerator.
