Peanut Butter Pie



This may be my favorite pie ever. is my favorite pie ever.  Or maybe it's tied for first with my banana cream pie.  Whatever.  It's SO good!!! If you are a peanut butter addict - like me - then you will LOVE this pie!!! It's so dreamy, creamy and full of rich, peanut butter flavor.  It truly melts in your mouth and is totally irresistable.  It's incredibly easy to make too.  It reminds of of a cold peanut butter cup...but better...because it's in pie form. The texture is silky and fluffy - kind of like a lighter cheesecake.  I made this for a cross country party, but once I tasted it I didn't tell anyone about it because I wanted it all for myself.  I didn't have much luck though...once people started tasting it they couldn't stop!  It ended up being completely eaten and I wasn't able to take any more home.  But now it's a family favorite and I will continue making it often.


For the Graham Cracker Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted

For the Filling:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup milk

Garnish (optional): Reese cups, more whipped cream, crushed oreos, chocolate syrup, and/or chocolate shavings


For crust:
  1. In a small bowl, combine the crumbs and sugar; add butter and blend well. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate.
