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.

Yum, oh yum! This pie is creamy peanut butter goodness. We test-tasted the recipe with a chocolate crust and we highly recommend the chocolate/peanut butter combination. In this pie, you have a creamy peanut butter filling with a fluffy cream layer. Sprinkled with chopped salted peanuts, they add crunch and give the pie a salty/sweet flavor. This peanut butter pie is simple and quick to make. Completely unpretentious, yet completely delicious. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 c
    powdered sugar
  • 4 oz
    softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 pt

How to Make Mom's Incredibly Easy Peanut Butter Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream sugar and cream cheese together first.
  2. Add whipped cream or Cool Whip and peanut butter.
  3. Mix until smooth.
  4. Pour batter into 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 until golden).
  5. Chill for one hour.
  6. Top with more whipped cream.
  7. Add chopped peanuts, if desired.
  8. I always like to add Reese's peanut butter cups (miniature size) cut in half around the edges if using a chocolate crust.
