Peanut Butter Pie

Nancy Allen


This pie is a real winner! The made from scratch vanilla custard layered in a pie shell with sweetened peanut butter crumbs and real whipped cream topping is so over the top good. I hope you'll give it a try!

How to Make Peanut Butter Pie


  • 1Bake your favorite pie crust until golden brown and let it cool. In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter and confectioners sugar until crumbly; set aside.
  • 2In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, cornstarch, granulated sugar, and salt. Stir in egg yolks. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and comes to a boil; boil for 1 minute then remove from heat. Stir in butter and vanilla. Place plastic wrap on the surface of the cream filling and set aside to cool.
  • 3Spread 2/3 cup of peanut butter crumbs in the baked and cooled pie shell, covering the bottom and sides of the shell. Pour the cream filling over the crumbs and chill thoroughly.
  • 4In a mixer bowl, combine all the whipped topping ingredients and whip until the cream is stiff and well defined peaks form. Don't walk away and leave mixer on though; the mixture can turn into butter in a matter of seconds. Spread topping over custard and sprinkle with remaining peanut butter crumbs. Refrigerate until serving.
