Butterfinger Pie Recipe

This recipe is unique in that I made a Butterfinger Cookie Crust instead of a traditional pie crust. It absolutely does magical things to this pie! The rich cookie base paired with the creamy peanut butter and Butterfinger cream cheese filling is not only a flavor explosion but a food texture adventure. Chewy, creamy, crunchy all at once!

This recipe is a small one in that it will fit in a 7-inch round pie pan. If you happen to have an 8-inch or 9-inch pan you can use those easily, just don’t put as much cookie dough up the sides of the pan.

Butterfinger Pie Directions

For the cookie: (FULL INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IN THE RECIPE CARD)

  • Preheat oven to 350°F degrees.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in egg until just combined.
  • With the mixer on low, gradually add in flour and salt.
  • Stir in Butterfinger pieces by hand. The dough will be very thick.
  • Press the mixture into a prepared pie dish. Press the mixture up the sides and make sure it is as even as possible.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350°F or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven. If the cookie has puffed up at all, use a kitchen glass to evenly press it down immediately out of the oven. Let sit for at least 30 min. before adding the filling. (Cookie should be room temperature, not warm.)

This recipe serves 8 and stays fresh in the refrigerator for about 2 days.

  1. If I want to double the recipe, how will the measurements change for the crust? I want the crust to be able to go up to the sides of the dish.

  2. Looks great, love that there is no sugar in the filling. Will have to try it soon!! I bake something each week for our Quilting group, your recipes look just fabulous!!

  3. The peanut butter is not necessary because butterfingers is a peanut butter candy, it only omits from the authentic butter finger taster.

    I use 8 oz of cream cheese, 8 oz cool whip and 1 1/2 packs of finely crushed butterfingers, combine and smoosh into a pie crust then take 4 oz cool whip and 1/2 pack of finely crushed butter fingers and whip together, then put that on top

    I’ll let it set for a total of 24 hours so make it the night before.
