Peanut butter is a staple in our house, especially for Stephanie! I have been making this pie for years and it always meets with oohs and aahs at parties and family events.

Prep:

Cook:

10 Min

Method:

Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

1 c
powdered sugar
4 oz
softened cream cheese
1/2 pt
whipping cream or small container of cool whip topping
3/4 c
peanut butter (chunky or creamy works)
1
baked 8-inch pastry shell or one 8-inch chocolate cookie crust

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream sugar and cream cheese together first. Add whipped cream or cool whip and peanut butter. Mix until smooth.
2
Chill one hour in pre-made or pre-bought chocolate pie crust (this is the tastiest, if you love chocolate and peanut butter together) or follow directions for a single crust pie pastry (prick bottom and sides with a fork and bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or till golden)
3
May be topped with more whipped cream and chopped peanuts, if desired. I always like to add reeces peanut butter cups (miniature size) cut in half around the edges if using a chocolate crust.
