Ingredients For Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut Butter – I like creamy peanut butter (like Jif) but you can use crunchy as well. Avoid using ‘natural’ peanut butter, as it doesn’t blend as smoothly.

Cream Cheese – Use a block of room-temperature cream cheese. Full fat is best for richness and texture, but low fat can be used for a lighter version.

Heavy Cream – Heavy cream is folded in for a fluffy texture. Replace it with 2 cups of prepared whipped topping (like cook whip).

Powdered Sugar – Adds sweetness and mixes in smoothly.

Crust – Oreo cookies, including the filling, are pulsed into crumbs for the crust. You can substitute with a store-bought graham crust or Nutter Butters.

How to Make Peanut Butter Pie

Baked pies have their place, but sometimes a simple pie is the perfect bite! Simply prep, mix, and chill pie is all you need!

  1. Make pie crust and chill (per recipe below).
  2. With a hand mixer or the whisk attachment of a stand mixer, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, and powdered sugar until fluffy. Fold whipped cream.
  3. Spread the peanut butter pie filling into the crust and chill.

Garnish with chopped peanuts, mini chocolate chips, or candy like Reese’s pieces or mini peanut butter cups, a drizzle of wicked hot fudge sauce, or peanut butter frosting!

  1. Drooling just thinking of this perfect dessert! Though I do need to use something other than a heavy whipped cream … is Cool Whip an option? If not, what else?

    1. Whipped cream can be replaced with 2 cups of whipped topping such as cool whip, the will make the pie slightly sweeter. Enjoy!

  2. This looks so yummy. I am going to make it this weekend. Am wondering if I could double the recipe and put half in jars for the kids. Would the consistency be right for that? Thank you in advance.

    1. I have never tried that myself so I can’t say for sure, but it sounds like such a fun idea! I would love to hear how it turns out for you.

  3. Looks wonderful. I love peanut butter pie. Love the layers. Seems like an awful lot of peanut butter for one pie. Also, what am I going to do with the leftover sweetened condensed milk and half a bar of cream cheese?????5 stars

    1. I’ve only made this as written so I can’t say for sure but you could try mascarpone. Let us know how it goes!

  4. I would like to see more recipes from scratch. I don’t buy boxed cakes, pauding anymore. I try to be more natural.
    Thank you,
