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.

  1. This sounds amazing!! One problem though…. in Australia we don’t have whipped topping. What else could be substituted in the pie filling? Regular hand whipped cream?

    1. I have a similar recipe but mine calls for 1 cup heavy whipping cream in the filling ( donot whip)
      Delicious.

  2. If you sprinkle crushed honey roasted peanuts on the top of the whipped peanut butter filling, the whole thing tastes like a butterfinger bar.
    I made this as individual servings in small clear plastic tumblers without baking the crust, it solidified in the fridge, and topped it w crushed honey rest peanuts and stabilized whipped cream. Then I individually wrapped them in Saran Wrap. The dessert held up very well for 3 days without losing flavor or the whipped cream getting runny. Guests will thank you for the delicious dessert!

    1. Thanks so much for that tip, Michelle! This is such a perfect dessert to enjoy in the summer…so glad you like it! Thanks! xo

  3. I made this for the July 4th celebration and it was a big hit!- I left the pie bare and put the toppings out for each person to build their own slice of Peanut butter pie – everyone had fun with that! This being no bake is an easy and yummy summer dessert!

  4. Yummmmmm… I am most definitely making this sometime. I can’t right now though because I don’t have any cream cheese or graham crackers right now. It’s also lent(I am Catholic and I usually limit sweets during lent), and even though lent ends in less than a week, we are going to have Easter baskets full of chocolate and sweets, and my older sister is going to make macarons and candied citrus fruit. I wanted to make meringue, but perhaps not. XD

    1. Rebekah,
      This would be a great recipe for you to make after all the Easter baskets of candy and your sister’s treats are gone. It’s a really easy recipe to make but oh, the flavor! Let me know how you like it!

    1. I used Jif peanut butter in this pie but I think natural peanut butter would work, too. Hope you enjoy your pie, Enid. Thanks
