Blue Ribbon Recipe

Christina's peanut butter pie recipe is fabulous. There is no better duo in our mind than peanut butter and chocolate. The melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter Oreo crust is next level genius. Every bite you take, the chocolate melts in your mouth and pairs well with the creamy peanut butter layer. This pie is decadent, indeed, and very addicting! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Ultimate Peanut Butter Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Crush up cookies into a fine crumb (yes the whole package... less 2 because I ate them haha).
  2. Put them into a large deep pie pan. Melt butter and drizzle over cookie crumbs. Mix well and begin to start pressing them down firmly in the center of pan working outward.
  3. Keep pressing the cookie crust firmly into the pan working up the sides of the pan. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Seat aside and cool.
  4. Melt package of chocolate chips with 1/3 c of heavy cream in microwave stirring every 10-15 seconds until melted, smooth and silky.
  5. Pour most of the melted chocolate mixture over the crust setting aside a bit of it for a finishing drizzle. Work the chocolate up the sides of the crust and spread evenly. Put pie in refrigerator to chill while making the filling.
  6. Cream together the peanut butter and cream cheese (I use my stand mixer for this part). Make the pudding in a separate bowl with the milk. When thick, add it to the peanut butter mixture. Then add the condensed milk and mix together well.
  7. Beat the 1 1/2 heavy cream. When it just starts getting thicker add the sugar. Beat until thickened.
  8. Fold 1 cup of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture and pour peanut butter filling into the pie. Smooth out evenly.
  9. Spread the rest of the whipped cream on top of the peanut butter filling. Place chopped up peanut butter cups on top. Then drizzle with the remaining melted chocolate. Chill at least 2 hours before serving. ENJOY!!!
