My daughter Catherine can’t get enough of this super simple pie that’s easy to prepare for a mother-daughter book club meeting. Catherine loves just about everything with peanut butter, but she’s not alone. Every time I make this recipe the pie disappears so fast I think I should have made two.
Peanut Butter Pie
- 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese at room temperature
- 3 to 4 tblsp. milk
- 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
- about 1/2 cup (or slightly more) peanut butter
- 1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip, thawed
Blend all ingredients together and spoon into a graham cracker crust. Refrigerate. You can purchase a pre-prepared graham cracker crust, but making one is easy too. I make a chocolate graham cracker crust.
Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust
- 1-1/2 cups chocolate graham cracker crumbs
- 1/3 cup confectioner’s sugar
- 6 tblsp. melted butter
Mix all ingredients together and press into a pie tin. It will be loose and crumbly, so refrigerate until cold before spooning the pie filling in. You can bake it at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes, but my family prefers it unbaked.
It’s that simple. I got the recipe from my mom, and she also finds that the pie is gobbled up quickly every time she makes it. Enjoy!
