Yeehaw! Chef Lisa has taken the traditional Cowboy Cookie (usually a dry and boring desperado-of-a-cookie) and turned it on its saddlebag with her easy and original Cowboy Blondie Recipe.

7. FROZEN CHOCOLATE, BANANA AND PEANUT BUTTER PIE

Elvis was able to swivel his hips and make women bawl, but really, he was just your average Joe, a guy who loved peanut butter and banana sandwiches. This pie is our hunka-hunka-freezing-love tribute to him - a simple, velvety smooth icebox pie that would surely have elicited a "thank you, thank you very much" from the Pelvis.
