1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 large egg
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 TBSP vanilla extract
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup flour
pinch salt, optional and to taste
12 to 14 mini peanut butter cups (like Reese’s)
Peanut Butter M&Ms (about 2/3 cup)

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9-inch pie dish with floured cooking spray; set aside.
In a large, microwave-safe bowl melt the butter, about 1 minute on high power.

Cool slightly. Add the egg, brown sugar, peanut butter, vanilla, and whisk until smooth.

Add the flour, optional salt, and stir until just combined.

Turn batter out into prepared pie dish.

Evenly insert the peanut butter cups into the batter, pushing them down so the top is almost flush with the surface of the dough. Evenly insert the M&Ms into the batter, pushing them down to anchor.

Bake for about 28 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. If your pie has risen in the center, it will deflate as it cools. Allow pie to cool in pan at least 30 minutes before slicing.
