Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

This recipe belonged to my best friend's mother, Rosemary Powers, an Irish lady from outside of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  I liked it enough to ask her for the recipe.  Imagine!  I was only sixteen, and already a foodie :)

3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups Cool Whip
36 vanilla wafers, crushed
1/3 cup butter, melted
chocolate sauce

Combine vanilla wafers and butter.  Spread evenly in bottom, and up sides of a pie plate.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.  Cool completely.

Combine remaining ingredients until well combined.  Spread in pie shell.  Cover with plastic wrap and freeze.  To serve, cut into wedges and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
