No Bake Peanut Butter Pie Ingredients

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • ⅔ cup peanut butter
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • ½ cup of milk
  • Graham cracker pie crust or Oreo pie crust
  • Cool Whip
  • Chopped roasted peanuts (optional garnish)

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CRUST: Try using a chocolate graham cracker crust or a chocolate Oreo crust in this no-bake pie recipe. Either would be delicious with the peanut butter filling.

PEANUT BUTTER: If you want your pie to be smooth and creamy, make sure to use creamy peanut butter. If you want a bit of added crunch in this delicious pie, you can use crunchy peanut butter.

WHIPPED CREAM: If you would like to use whipped cream rather than whipped topping, you can certainly make your own. Check out our whipped cream recipe for a homemade version of Cool Whip.

TOPPINGS: To make this pie extra decadent, you could sprinkle chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or chopped-up Reese’s peanut butter cups on top, or even mixed into the peanut butter mixture.

How To Make This No Bake Peanut Butter Pie Recipe

STEP ONE: Begin by creaming the peanut butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar with an electric mixer in a large mixing bowl. Add the milk.

PRO TIP:

Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that you don’t end up with lumps in your mixture.

STEP TWO: Pour the peanut butter mixture into the crust and make it level. 

PRO TIP:

To make it easier to transport the pie and add stability to the foil pie pan, I’d recommend setting it inside a 9-inch pie plate.

STEP THREE: Spread Cool Whip on top of the peanut butter filling with a rubber spatula. Add chopped nuts on top of the pie if desired.

STEP FOUR: Freeze for 3 hours before serving. You may want to remove it from the freezer for 10 minutes before cutting it to serve.

PRO TIP:

Don’t skip the chilling step as you need to give the pie and filling time to set.

How To Serve

This creamy pie has the perfect ice cream consistency everyone loves. Serve up a slice with a drizzle of melted chocolate, melted peanut butter, or even caramel sauce, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream for extra sweetness.

    Im a fan of Nutter Butter cookies so I experimented a little on my own and crushed the cookies up to make my crust. Then to top it off, I used a few left over crust crumbs to sprinkle on the top and added a couple whole Nutter Butters in the center. It turned out so cute and there was no confusion of what kind of pie it was when it came dessert time with its cute peanut shaped cookies on top. Thank you for the wonderful recipe, its a new holiday desert staple in our home!

    I’ve made this a couple times and I love it! The last time I used an Oreo pie crust and added chocolate chips. It was great.
