Peanut Butter Pie

I decided to make this pie after my weekly shopping trip. I found these cookies… these amazing chocolate covered peanut butter filled cookies… that I have been dying to try. And I am so glad I did! Not only are these cookies the crunchy topping covering our creamy peanut butter filling, but they are the crust as well! Let me tell you, this crust is AMAZING. Those cookies are so packed with rich chocolate fudge and smooth peanut butter filling, I did not even need to add butter like I would with a traditional pie crust!

This pie only has a few ingredients but it sure does pack a punch. The cream cheese + peanut butter + confectioners sugar = a peanut butter lovers dream come true.

How to Make Peanut Butter Pie

The most important part of this recipe is the room temperature ingredients. To ensure that your filling is creamy you need the cream cheese to be softened or at room temperature.

There is nothing better than peanut butter and chocolate, and this pie is the best of both worlds. That cookie crust is heaven and adds the slightest bit of texture to the seriously silky peanut butter filling.

This pie can be assembled very quickly, but you should chill it for about 2 hours before serving.

I used a 7-inch pan for this recipe. I love a mile-high pie and was especially pleased with this one!

How to Store Peanut Butter Pie

To store a pie you and your family will be enjoying, it should last 2 days in the refrigerator.

To freeze peanut butter pie I recommend not topping with the chopped cookie and placing the pie in an airtight bag or large air-tight storage container for up to 3 months. The trick is to remove as much air as possible. I have chilled the pie for an hour then covered with plastic wrap, then wrapped with foil, then frozen. To thaw be sure to remove the foil and plastic wrap right when you take it out of the freezer.

Can You Make This Without The Chocolate Cookie Crust?

Yes, you sure can. I recommend a nutter butter crust or even peanut butter cookie! To make that crust: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Crush 20 nutter butters or another cookie until they are fine crumbs. (A food processor works great for this.) Pour 4 tablespoons melted butter over top and stir with a fork to combine. Press into a pie pan and bake until set, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
