I was not a big fan of this recipe. The peanut butter part seemed bitter and there was too much cream cheese flavor. I did sweeten the whipped cream on top as another reviewer suggested and I'm glad I did. I used a store-bought chocolate graham crust. The filling was piled high in the crust but it did work. I will not be making this again. Read More

Very creamy and very tasty! I made minor changes just to improve the health quality of the recipe regardless my rating is the same for each version! For the crust I used half low-fat graham crackers and half reduced-fat Oreo cookies mixed together while omitting the sugar completely (it's just not necessary). I used reduced-fat peanut butter light cream cheese and halved the confectioner's sugar. If you prefer a more pronounced peanut butter flavor then I would increase to 2 cups or reduce the cream cheese to 8 oz. The filling was delicious although definitely had a noticeable cream cheese flavor. I topped with the remaining graham cracker and Orea mixture. Mini chocolate chips would make a great addition to the pie filling. If you prefer the whipped topping I recommend adding a dash of vanilla extract and 2 tbsp of confectioner's sugar to the final cup of heavy cream; without it the taste is blah. Next time I will make this in an actual pie pan. When I attempted to remove the springform pan the pie nearly caved out the sides. Hope these suggestions help everyone! Read More

This was good! I was lazy and bought a oreo crust and ended up having leftover filling. Next time I make it I will buy 2 crusts and just double the topping. Read More

I used a store bought graham cracher crust and heaped the filling in! I think the confectioners' sugar is to add more sweet to the whipped heavy cream. But again I used store bought whipped cream and split the container. Regardless AMAZING! Read More

This is very creamy due to the heavy cream instead of the whipped topping. I really like that however there wasn't enough sugar in it for me. I had to add another half cup of confectioner's sugar and then I added 1/4 cup to the whipped cream. Read More
