NO BAKE PEANUT BUTTER PIE INGREDIENTS

You’ll need:

  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • ⅔ cup peanut butter
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese
  • 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.

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.

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 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 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

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.

STORAGE

​​IN THE FREEZER: Leftover peanut butter cream pie should be kept in the freezer. Just rewrap the rest of the pie with plastic wrap and put it back in the freezer. It’s that easy.

No-bake peanut butter pie is a decadent dessert that tastes like it took a lot of effort, but really is a simple pie recipe that peanut butter lovers will adore. It’s a delightful and delicious dessert with a creamy filling you’ll want to make over and over again!
