Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie!

It tastes as good as it looks. The other day I made something very similar to this but without a chocolate topping. My Mom and I didn't care for it (everyone else thought it was great) but this dessert was MUCH better. My Dad even said "this is really good"...

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cookie Pie
1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® Create 'n Bake® refrigerated chocolate chip cookies
3 cups powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup water
2 cups milk chocolate chips, melted(I found the easiest way to melt these is in the mircorwave with butter)
6 pecan halves, if desired
DIRECTIONS:
Heat oven to 350°F. In bottom of ungreased 10- or 9-inch springform pan, break up cookie dough. With floured fingers, press dough evenly in bottom of pan. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar, peanut butter, butter and water until well blended. (If necessary, add additional water 1 teaspoon at a time until mixture is smooth.) Drop spoonfuls of mixture over baked cookie crust; press evenly to cover crust. Spread melted chocolate chips over peanut butter mixture. If desired, carefully swirl chocolate with fork. Garnish with pecan halves. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate is set.
