I can't find the words to tell everyone what an AWESOME pie this is. After making it, I have already given the recipe out to three of my friends.

- 1 Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
- 2½ cups heavy whipping cream
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened

- ¼ cup sugar
- 6 packages (1.5 oz each) Reese's™ Peanut Butter Cups™, chopped (about 1½ cups)

- Spoon reserved 1 cup whipped cream on top of cream cheese mixture, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with remaining ½ cup chopped peanut butter cups. In same small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining 1 tablespoon hot fudge uncovered on High 5 to 10 seconds or until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle on top of pie. Refrigerate 3 hours before serving.
