I had some cookies leftover from Soft and Fudgy Peanut Butter Cookies (Thanks Marg :) I crumbled a few of the cookies to use for the base. Any type of chocolate cookie could be used for the base. (This is what I happened to have on hand). I also combined Peanut Butter Pie with Quick Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars (Thanks jglad :) and this is what I came up with. Chill overnight for best flavor. Chill time isn't included in cook time. Submitted to "ZAAR" on December 30th, 2007.
