Creamy Peanut Butter Pie

If you are a peanut butter lover, you've gotta try this easy pie. Its rich, thick and creamy filling matches perfectly with the graham cracker crust.

This recipe is a variant of a Grave Yard Peanut Butter Pie that I created for Moms Menu for Halloween.

Creamy Peanut Butter Pie

4 oz. cream cheese, softened at room temp.
1/2 of a small jar of peanut butter (does not
have to be exact amt. I just "eyeballed" it)
1/2 C. powdered sugar
1/3 C. milk
8 oz. Cool Whip, thawed - divided per directions
1 graham cracker crust

In a large bowl, Beat together cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar and milk until very creamy. Fold in 6 oz. Cool Whip until all ingredients are completely mixed together. Pour the mixture into the crust - I used a store bought graham cracker crust. Reserve leftover Cool Whip for decorating the top of the pie.

Cover pie and stick it into the freezer for at least 2 hrs. Thaw for approximately 1 hour before serving.

I've made this pie up to 3 days ahead of time and it is perfect as long as you thaw it for 1 hour before serving it.

Repeat with freezing and thawing any leftovers. I wouldn't recommend doing this more than this one time.

Now, grab a spoon or fork and dig into it! Yum!

Wonder what this would taste like in a chocolate pie crust?

Thanks, Amanda! It was sooo good.

Kim, Take a look at the Graveyard pie link that I posted. I made that one with a chocolate crust. It's really good, too. I prefer the plain crust, though.

Jackie, I love that little heart!

Justine, You've gotta try this one if you really like pb! My husband isn't even crazy about pb like the rest of us but he loves this pie.

Thanks for stopping by!
