THE BEST PEANUT BUTTER PIE EVER! I was looking for a recipe as good as one an old friend of mine used to make--I think this beats it! Everyone RAVED about how delicious this was with melted chocolate chips drizzled over the top. I also made a double recipe in a 13 x 9 pan and cut into squares and put in mini muffin cups to sit out at a party--BIG HIT! Read More

I did use an oreo crust to save time. The only thing I would do different is use confectionary sugar and eliminate the regular sugar. It makes a creamier consistancy. I put fudge sauce on the crust before putting in the filling. I also drizzled some on top and decorated with peanut butter cups. Read More

This is a really great pie if you are in a fix and need something delicious and quick. But it's so rich that putting chocolate chips on top seemed to throw it overboard. A nice alternative would be very thin chocolate shavings.:o) Read More

I use extra peanut butter and everything else stays the same. Have used chocolate crust oreo crust and regular graham cracker crust. I have been getting requests for this for years since the first time I made it. I crush Reese's cups on top chocolate chips or peanuts. It is extremely easy to make and can make ahead of time and freeze for later! Read More

I have rave reviews for this easy recipe. All the family request it for the holidays and it beat out my husband's ex-wife's peanut butter pie hands down. That makes it a #1 winner! Read More

This is excellent! I used Carb Smart peanut butter and powdered sugar. I also poured it into a chocolate wafer crust but think a graham cracker crust might be a bit better. My step-daughter said it was the best dessert she ever ate. I highly recommend this. I could eat it all day!! Read More

OMG. This is one of the best desserts I have ever made on this site. I followed this recipe exactly minus the pie shell. It does not even need it. Blended correctly this piece of heaven is delicious topped with hot fudge sauce and frozen. P.S. the white sugar in the recipe is fine as long as it is blended in. You build some serious arm muscles mixing. But hey think of it as burning some calories before you load up on them:)My family also can not get enough of this pie. Read More
