How to Make Peanut Butter Pie

This easy peanut butter pie recipe requires three big steps: mix, pour, and freeze. Be ready to fend off your kids so they don’t try to sneak spoonfuls of filling when you’re not looking…it’s that good.

Making the filling mix is a breeze. Grab a medium bowl and cream your peanut butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Make sure it’s well blended and fluffy. Then, add milk and mix to make a creamy mousse-like filling. It should be smooth but still liquid enough to pour.

Pour the mixture into your crust and make it level. Whether it’s an oreo or graham cracker crust, both flavors will match perfectly.

Slather the top of your pie with a generous layer of Cool Whip and garnish with some chopped roasted peanuts. Your pie is now ready to be sent off to the freezer.

How Long to Freeze Peanut Butter Pie

No-bake peanut butter pie only needs to be frozen until it sets completely, which takes about 3 hours. Just keep it in the freezer until you’re ready to serve it! Remember to cover your pie with some plastic wrap before you put it in the freezer.

How to Serve Peanut Butter Pie

Take your pie out of the freezer and let it thaw for 5 to 10 minutes to the perfect softness before cutting it and serving it up in its frozen goodness. It’ll have the perfect ice cream consistency everyone loves.

Serve up a slice with a drizzle of some melted chocolate or melted peanut butter, or caramel for extra sweetness. Top with a sprig of mint to add a bit of freshness, it’ll look like you just bought it at a cafe.

For the sweet-tooth in the family, throw in some chopped peanut butter chocolate cups or crushed Reese’s pieces as well. It’ll be the perfect sweet treat. Your pie will go great with a cup of hot coffee or a tall, cold glass of milk. Another great idea is crushed peanut brittle, which adds crunch and sweetness to your pie.

In the summer, I like to make pie ice cream bars. Slice up the pie, let it thaw for a bit, and stick a popsicle stick into each slice. Dip each pie slice into melted semi-sweet chocolate, drip off the excess, and pop them back into the freezer. Just another way to enjoy this pie in a fun way.

How to Store Peanut Butter Pie

What do you do after your friends leave and you still have half a pie left? Back in the freezer it goes. Just rewrap the rest of the pie with your plastic wrap and put it back in the freezer. It’s that easy.

Just use the same tips for serving once you’re ready to enjoy it again. But really, this pie is so good, it’s going to disappear before the rest of it can make it back into the freezer.
