Peanut Butter Cream Pie

As soon as I took a bite of this pie, the word ‘luxurious’ came to mind. It was so creamy and full of peanut butter flavor, which I was hoping for! However, don’t tell anyone how easy it is to put together; no one will know until they beg for the recipe. And, it’s a no-bake dessert, perfect for hot days when you don’t want to turn on your oven!

Peanut Butter Cream Pie Ingredients

Filling: Be sure the cream cheese is at room temperature before mixing it with the peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, and milk.

Peanut Butter: As I stated above, the creaminess of this dessert really stood out, so I went with creamy peanut butter. However, you could get away with using crunchy peanut butter if that is what you have on hand.

Whipped Topping: Grab a tub of cool whip from the store to mix in with the filling.

Crust: When you buy the cool whip, don’t forget the premade Oreo crust. See, I told you this recipe was easy!

Yes! You could definitely crush up some oreo cookies, fillings removed, to make the crust. You would need about 24 cookies and 3-4 tablespoons of melted butter to coat the oreo crumbs. Press the crust into a 9-inch pie pan.

Can I Use Homemade Whipped Cream?

Just like you could make your own crust, you could also make homemade whipped cream. If you make your own, you will need about 3 cups to add to the filling.

Can I Make Peanut Butter Cream Pie Ahead of Time?

Yes! This is the perfect kind of dessert to make in advance since it has to chill in the refrigerator for at least three hours anyway. In addition, it will last up to 4 days in the refrigerator.

  1. We are all not fans of Cool whip, can I substitute real whipped cream, done enough to hold its self instead of the cool whip? The pie does look yummy!

      1. Haven’t made this yet however if you can find the “Extra Creamy” Cool Whip buy that. It’s made with real cream. Taste like whipped cream, looks like whipped cream and is much better than just Cool Whip. When I make something that calls for Cool Whip that’s what I buy. It’s in the stores in Fl.

  2. Buy Extra Creamy Cool Whip if your store stocks it. Taste, looks and is made with real cream. Lots better than just plain or Lite Cool Whip.
