Peanut Butter Pie

We take our sweets very seriously around here. This is one hell of a good pie. Comforting and satisfying. And so ridiculously easy to throw together. You store it in the freezer and it's much better than grabbing for the gallon of ice cream. No baking required either! The bonus here is that I got to use my microplaner to shave the leftover Hershey bar from Kendall's Halloween bag.

Peanut Butter Pie

1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup milk
1/2 (16 ounce) package frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (9 inch) prepared cookie crust (I used the oreo crust found in the baking aisle)

Beat together cream cheese and confectioners' sugar. Mix in peanut butter and milk. Beat until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
Spoon into pie shell, add some chocolate shavings or broken Reeses PB cups) on top,
cover, and freeze until firm.
Eat a slice, forget about the calories and go back for seconds.


  1. This sounds really yummy I am going to try this
    thanks for the recipe

    peace and hugs

  2. This has become a favorite of mine.

    Have you ever made the Reese's Cup Cookie? It's just 8 regular sized Reese's Cups and an egg. Crumbled them up then throw it in the mixer with an egg til it gets doughy. Plunk down kinda one in balls on UNgreased cookie sheet. Bake until cookie-like. They're heaven, too!

  3. Make that THREE PACKAGES of 8. 24 cups total.


    That would have been a soupy nasty mess...
