Peanut Butter Pie

Today I thought I would share a recipe that is one of our families favorite deserts. In our house anything with peanut butter in it is a good thing. We go through peanut butter like crazy. This recipe is another recipe that my mom has made for years and I have made a couple of times. I made it yesterday and took it to work for the girls I work with. It seems like a lot of the time we end up talking about food at one point or another and some how peanut butter pie got brought up. So I told them I would make them one and they loved it. It is a really easy recipe that takes about 10 minutes to whip up and then some time to chill.

The Ingredients:

1 Graham Cracker or Oreo Pie Crust
1 8oz package of Cream Cheese
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 tbsp Milk
1 4oz tub of Cool Whip

In a large bowl combine cream cheese and peanut butter; beat with electric mixer until combined. I beat my cream cheese first to break and soften it up.


Next add powdered sugar and milk; beat until combined.

 
Next fold in about half of the container of whip topping with a spoon not the electric mixer.
 
 
Spoon into pie crust and then top with remaining cool whip.
 



 
Cover and chill in the freezer for 15 minutes. Makes 8 servings.
Enjoy!

  2. Glad I'm not the only one who loves PB. I can go through a small jar in two days. Not kidding, my husband had me buy two separate jars (kinda like a his and hers) so I can only have what's in my jar. Yep. That bad!

    1. That's awesome. Just last week my mom bought a small jar of PB and it lasted only like 4 days. I told her I would go buy some more and she said not to get anything less than the 40 oz sized one and I told her too bad you couldn't get a 5 gallon bucket or 500 gallon drum of it!
