How to Make the Best Peanut Butter Pie
To make the best peanut butter pie, I love to start with a chocolate cookie crust, like Oreos. I crush the cookies into fine crumbs and then spread into a pie dish and bake for about 5 minutes until set. This can even be done in advance if you’d like since you need the pie crust to cool completely before making your pie.
If you prefer, you can also use graham cracker crumbs for a simple graham cracker crust instead of chocolate cookie crumbs for your pie crust.
To make the filling for the peanut butter pie, you simple cream together your cream cheese, peanut butter, confectioner’s sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in your whipped cream, or you can use store-bought whipped topping if you prefer. Spread into the cookie crust and refrigerate until chilled completely, for at least an hour.
When ready to serve, top with ice cream or whipped cream, peanut butter cups and chocolate syrup, if you’d like.
Can You Make Ahead Peanut Butter Pie?
Absolutely! Prepare your peanut butter pie as instructed without adding the toppings for serving. Cover well with wrap and store in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. To serve, top with the optional toppings and serve.
Can You Freeze Peanut Butter Pie?
To freeze peanut butter pie, make sure that you use a freezer-safe dish, wrap well with freezer wrap and then place the pie plate into a 2-gallon freezer zip top bag. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months. To serve, simply thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Then, top with the optional toppings and serve.
