I took this pie to my parents house to share with my sister, nephews, and niece who are visiting. It was a good thing we got pictures of this pie when we did, because it was all eaten at one meal. I knew that would be the case though, because it is a recipe shared by a friend, and it’s fabulous.
Peanut Butter Pie
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 8-ounce package of Cool Whip (or store brand – I had a coupon for Cool Whip :))
Optional: Chocolate pieces or syrup, for topping
1 9-inch graham cracker crust*
1. For filling, first mix powdered sugar and cream cheese together with hand mixer. When it is well blended, mix in the peanut butter.
3. Mix in the cool whip at a medium-low speed, just until mixed thoroughly. (You can mix as much as you want before adding the cool whip.)
4. Spoon into the prepared crust. Top with chocolate pieces or drizzled syrup, if desired. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
* If you don’t have a store bought crust, these are directions for making your own crust, like I did:
Combine 4 tablespoons melted butter with 1 cup of crushed graham crackers. Press into a 9-inch pie plate, and refrigerate for 10 minutes (at least) before filling. This is really easy to make and works great to make before you make the filling.
