This pie is so smooth and creamy that it will melt in your mouth! It's always requested by my family members for its ultimate peanut butter flavor.

This recipe is awesome! It's got the least ingredients of all the other pies I looked at and it is SO easy to make. I made it exact the first time my family said it was "too sweet". (As if there were such a thing...but they are not that into sweets & when they do have them they tend to think they have more sweetness than other people.) When I made it a second time I cut the amount of sugar in half. Still "too sweet" for some family. I cut the sugar all the way down to 1/3 cup. Just right for them. AND it still tastes sweet to those who DO eat sweets a lot & like the sweetness. I also changed from regular peanut butter to "natural" peanut butter on the most recent pie...and I think that toned some of the sweet down also. The only reason I changed the sugar amount originally was b/c of my family. I love the original...and I like the less sugar versions I made also. Read More

I guess I'm in the minority here but I didn't love this pie.I thought I would have because I love everything in it but it was way too sweet. I realize that it's dessert and it's supposed to be sweet but it was really over the top. Even my six year old who could eat eat sugar by the spoonfuls didn't like it. I think an 8oz block of cream cream instead of 3oz cream cheese might have made a difference. It may have cut the sweetness of it somewhat. Don't think I would make it again anyway. Read More

This is outstanding. My family asks for it all the time. A variation is: instead of peanut butter use Nutella (a hazelnut-chocolate spread) ooo boy Read More

Heavenly! It is very smooth and creamy tasting. I make this according to the directions and I top mine with whip cream, chocolate and caramel syrup and crushed Reeses cups. You can also store this in the freezer. It won;t freeze solid, it just stays firm and cold and it is best eaten when it is firm and cold, I highly recommend trying it. I accidently discovered it and now I store mine in the freezer all the time. Read More

This pie tastes impressive for very little work! Taking other reviewer's advice I used 1 cup pb 8 oz cream cheese and 1 cup regular sugar--SO GOOD! UPDATE: for a really delicious twist try adding slice bananas to this pie--I put them in the crust before adding the pb filling. Read More

WOW! that's all I can say really. I used an oreo crust and I drizzled chocolate syrup individually on each slice and it turned out to be fantastic. It was a little hard to mix the peanut butter confectioner's sugar and cream cheese together by hand but boy was it worth it. I don't hand out 5-star ratings frivolously but this one really deserves it! If I make it again I will experiment with different toppings. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Made this pie for a pie auction and it was a hit! Drizzled Hershey's chocolate syrup over the filling and crumbled Reese's candy bar on top. Will definitely make again! Read More

Only improvements I made to the recipe were to use real whipped cream (1 cup whipping cream plus 3 Tb powdered sugar whipped until stiff) in place of the Cool Whip which always imparts an artificial taste and add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. With the real cream this was sublime! I topped with chocolate syrup and quartered peanut butter cups. Easy but fabulous flavor! Read More

WOW! This is wonderful! It isn't heavy like some PB pies are. It's very light and airy and doesn't make you feel overly full. I took advice from MySweetCreations and added chopped up Reese's and Chocolate Syrup. I picked up the 8oz CoolWhip and didn't realize until I was making it that I was short 4oz. It didn't matter everything still turned out and it was gobbled up at Thanksgiving! I will be making this many more times. Thanks for the great recipe!:) Read More
