Reviews for Peanut Butter Pie
Fantastic recipe! It's also easy to adjust to personal preference or just to try something new. I'm making this for the fourth time and after the first time as-is, I wanted less of a peanut butter cheesecake taste. My personal favorite ratio is 8 oz pb, 8oz cream cheese, 8 oz cool whip. I save just a bit of the cool whip to spread a thin layer on top of the filing. After that, tons of options. This will be my first time with a chocolate cookie crust instead of a graham cracker crust.
I tried it just like it was and it was... awesome . I would like to try it using the chocolate graham crust next!!!
I made and everyone loved it and so easy too!
I made a homemade graham cracker crust that I found on this site (so easy to make and a hundred times better than store bought!) with chocolate graham crackers and the rest of the recipe I followed exactly. It came out pretty good but not enough peanut butter taste for me. It tasted like a peanut butter cheesecake, which is NOT a bad thing but, not exactly what I wanted. Next time I'll use this recipe as more of a guideline and the only change I'll make is to use less cream cheese and/or more peanut butter. Other than being to cheesecake-like for me, it came out perfect! The texture was great and it set up wonderful in the refrigerator after only 3 hours (we couldn't wait any longer to eat it lol). When I feel like having cheesecake I'll definitely make this because it was so good!
I love this recipe and I would sssooo want to make it again.
This pie was so easy and delicious! I used an Oreo crust, and drizzled the top of the pie with chocolate, rather than garnish it with peanut butter cups. My family loved it! Thank you!
Better with out whipped topping on top , just drizzle herseys syrup on top
I have tried several peanut butter pies on here and this, by far, has been my favorite. I also like that this recipe makes just one pie at a time.
It was good, I did make my own crust and whipped cream.
Try melting peanut butter chips and add that over the crust .It will give that extra flavor some other reviewers were looking for.
Very good, and easy to make. My family cannot get enough!!
A little rich, but ohhh so good! :)
I used a chocolate cookie crust, piped the top layer of coolwhip on it (to make it pretty)and put coarsely chopped white and milk chocolate reese's peanutbutter cups on it. Everyone raved about it. Thanks for the recipe! Almost forgot, I also heated up a little chocolate fudge sauce and drizzled it on each piece as I served it.
I love this pie recipe! I love to take the creamy pie filling and layer it with brownie pieces, caramel, and whipped cream to make a trifle. Thanks for sharing!
omg.... best ever and so easy to make :) thank you for sharing.
I too added hot fudge sauce and put in the freezer first. Made it at Thanksgiving.....Gone!!!
Perfect - except I added all of whip topping in at once and mixed. Sprinkle chocolate chips, sparingly, on top.
This is the best peanut butter pie ever! I accidentally blended all of the whipped topping into the pie instead of saving some for the top. The consistency was even creamier than the original recipe. So now I always make it like that. It's a family favorite and I can make it ahead of time and freeze it, so it's my favorite, too.
This pie is so good!! Not to heavy, not to sweet, just perfect.
This was perfect the only change I made was using confectioners sugar and freezing it.
A go-to recipe. I tend to use a chocolate crust and a thin layer of chocolate pudding underneath the peanut butter layer. I skip the whipped topping that is used as garnish... it's not necessary
Absolutely delicious and SOOO fast. Thanks for the recipe
This is an amazing pie! I sometimes use a chocolate graham cracker crust. Light and fluffy not too rich!
This was very good and easy, although not peanut-buttery enough for me!! I made it exactly to the recipe and it turned out great and held up well to cutting.
Yum. Very easy to make
My husband was a bit skeptical about a no bake pie but he loves it! I doubled the peanut butter and added the hot fudge sauce as recommended in other reviews, will definitely make again.
I used the chocolate graham crackers. I also used an entire cup of peanut butter, as that is "MY" sin of choice. It was amazing!!!
I have made this exact pie many times. It is super easy! I now get it requested from my 2 kids and husband for each of their birthdays as their special dessert! They are the only ones that are allowed to eat it. :-) I usually add another few heaping spoonfuls of peanut butter and lots of Reese's cups on top. It turns out great every single time! I always use an Oreo premade crust.
My family loves this pie. I use an Oreo crust, and add more of the chopped peanut butter cups between the peanut butter and whipped cream layers. Great recipe!
So easy to make and sooooooo delicious. Great to take if you need to make something quick. Everybody enjoys this pie!
I used cool whip instead of whipping cream, and I omitted the cool whip on top. I drizzled chocolate syrup on top and added chopped up Reeses. It was an absolute hit!
Easy and awesome flavor. Swapped real whipped cream for whipped topping. Only made it better
Great! Tips - Take an extra 1/4 cup of pb heated for 45 seconds in microwave and drizzle on top I used only half of the sugar it called for I also made a brownie crust by baking a brownie in the pie shell and hallowing out the centre
Really easy to make. I made my own frozen whipping cream instead of using cool whip. I recommend only using regular peanut butter and not the organic runny kind, as the thicker peanut butter helps the pie keep shape!
Made for Thanksgiving 2011 and was a huge hit!
Brought this to Thanksgiving and my whole family devoured it and raved about it! The only change I made was added 3/4 cup of peanut butter instead of 1/2, and a little extra sugar to compliment the extra peanut butter. A+!
I made this recipe using a gluten free Graham cracker crust and it ended up being a delicious gluten free dessert. I love the fact that it is not sickening sweet. Thank you for sharing.
My husband and I loved this pie! I used about 1/2 more peanut butter in mine. Yummy! Silky smooth!
Instead of prepared crust, we crushed Pirate peanut butter cookies & mixed the crushed cookies with 1/2 cup melted butter. Filling was done as per recipe, made it Thursday, chilled till Saturday & boy was it ever delicious!!! Hubby's been talking about a PB cheesecake an old friend of his used to make, but after tasting this, he's got a new PB favorite!! ??
Way to sweet for me looked great ..not enough peanutbutter flavor
It was the hit of the party! and ohh so good! This will be on the menu every year from now on during the Holidays
Really, really good! almost like cheese cake! my guests loved it they ate every crumb!
super yummy, easy and affordable to make! The problem with with potlucks is that it cam be expensive to take a dish. This was hit that didn't break the bank. I added choc chips instead of peanut butter cups.
I just made this recipe and haven't tried it yet. It is in the freezer right now. I added some crunched up peanuts into it and chocolate on the top. It looks pretty. Just waiting for it to get ready to eat. We cleaned the bowl out before we washed it and it sure tasted good.
Made it exactly as called for, but used a 12 oz. tub of whipped cream which was plenty. Tasting the batter, I'd add a splash of vanilla flavoring. And I found tiny bit-sized Reeses Cups which I'm sure the kids will love. Next time, I'll get more creative, but for half an hour prep, this was a no-brainer and a crowd pleaser.
Tasted excellent. Topping ended up very soupy though. If I make again, I'll stick it in the freezer for a bit. The fridge overnight just didn't cut it.
Used only half of the coolwhip as I did not put the cool whip on top of pie as directed. Took to work and everyone loved it and wanted the recipe.
I made this for dessert when old friends dropped by, and they love peanut butter, so I thought this would be a shoe -in. Not nearly enough peanut butter at all, and I added more; and maybe because I used homemade whipped cream it didn't hold it's shape, golly, it was a mess! The only good part were the chopped choc. peanut butter cups!!
Loved it. I took suggestions and added 1 cup of PB. Made crust out of Nutterbutter cookies. Made it in a springform pan and froze it. Easy and delicious. Not too rich. I did not use the PB cups but I grated a bit of dark chocolate on top.
This pie is truly AMAZING! I decided to make this for a group at a BBQ. Because of the creaminess of the peanut butter filling, we opted to have the whipped topping as an option (along with the chocolate sauce, Reese's, and peanuts) instead of as an established pie topping. The guys at the BBQ ate it all up in a couple of minutes and really liked having the options! Thank you for this recipe!
This was really easy to make. I usually go exactly by the recipe the first time I try it, but after reading the reviews, I used a chocolate pie crust and used 3/4 cups of peanut butter. My son-n-law said it was good but rich. My daughter-n-law stated that it needed more peanut butter. My daughter said it was good but she could taste the cream cheese. This is definitely a keeper, but the next one I make will be with less of the cream cheese and hope it sets up. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe. I will definitely make again.
So easy and kids of all ages like it.
This is so delicious and easy! Definitely making this again. Thank you :)
This was sooooo yummy! I used a chocolate cookie crust and topped the pie with a drizzle of chocolate ganache and some salty peanuts. I made this for my mom's birthday and everbody loved it. Thanks for the great recipe!
A very simple recipe that I was able to follow and in turned out great. Everyone loved it and I'm a novice in the kitchen at best!
Well yes, this is quite yummy! I added a layer of chocolate pudding to the bottom of the crust, but it doesn't really need it. It is rich, but I found it perfect. I chopped up the candy for the top and that worked nicely. An easy pie that will impress guests!
So rich! If you love love love peanut butter & rich desserts, this is the one for you. If it's a little too much, try the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie recipe on this site.
I made just the peanut butter filling for this pie and piped it into small chocolate cups & drizzled with chocolate. The filling was amazing. This is a really good recipe whether you use it for pie or any other peanut butter dessert.
I used 6 oz of cream cheese, 1/3 cup of powdered sugar, 3/4 cups of PB, and 4 oz of whipped cream topping in the mix. The original recipe was too dairy tasting for me, and I prefer a bit more of the PB texture and flavor! Dessert recipes usually tend to be a bit sweet for me so 1/3 c sugar was perfect.
This is my new favorite desert recipe! Super easy and sooo delish! My family is obsessed with it.
I made oreo cookie crust from scratch I also made whip cream. I think it really think it makes for a better taste. Although it's a very tasty treat either way. Very easy to make and it brings lots of smiles to the table Shawn Webb Vacaville ca
so easy and so good. a favorite of the young an the old - anyone that likes peanutbutter! A chocolate crust also is very good with it.
I made this pie just the way the recipe said to make it. I thought it came out well. My husband loved it as well. This pie tastes much better than the frozen peanut butter pie from the grocery store. I would rather make this myself. I am going to pass the recipe along to a few friends and family members!
Very good!! All my boys love it:-) the only change I made was I crushed nutter butter cookies for the crust. Yum!
So easy! So tasty! I used light cream cheese and light whipped topping. I also used a prepared chocolate graham cracker crust.
Made this for our family dinner once and it was a huge hit! very easy to make and it say to make it the night before or refrigerate it 2 hours before but I didn't put mine in the fridge that long and it worked fine. Over all very few ingredients (most you probably already have at home) and easy to make in just a short amour of time. A+
Very good! I substituted light cream cheese and only used one 10 oz, container of whipped topping, which was plenty for both the filling and topping. I let the pie set for over 24 hours and it was soft, but still held together. The filling is mousse-like, so it was light and not cloyingly sweet. Small slices go a long way and is plenty.
This peanut butter pie is awesome. It's rich and has a strong peanut butter flavor. I make it for church dinners and family get-togethers. Everyone loves it and it is so easy to make. I top mine with a little chocolate sauce.
This is so delicious and easy! Definitely making this again. Thank you :)
The filing tasted too much like cream cheese. I kept adding peanut butter and powdered sugar. I also used an Oreo crust.
I would recommend using mini Reese's and making a layer at the bottom of the pie then out the mix. Also if you really like peanut butter add more of that. For presentation I sprinkled a small amount of Hersey powder. Delicious
Someone made this for me the other day, but mixed the cream layer into the mix rather than on the top. It was delicious, but I could defiantly only eat one slice! The only other improvement that she made was using a base made of crushed oreos, bound with egg and then baked for 5 minutes. Yum!
I used lower fat cream cheese and lite cool whip and did not put the chocolate on. Still very delish. I will be making it often.
I followed Ottercoon's suggestion of putting a layer of chocolate pudding in there. I made it for our Super Bowl party (dumb Panthers) and everyone loved it . So super easy to assemble even a caveman could make it. Thanks for a great recipe.
I made it as directed, but used Heath Candy bits in the mixture, and then after the layer of whipped cream, I sprinkled the Heath Candy on top and drizzled it with chocolate. It came out AMAZING. It was also very quick and easy to make!!
Great recipe that is easy to make. I did mine by hand instead of using a mixer and I have a broken wrist. IT IS THAT SIMPLE!!! Yummy pie even without the peanut butter cup garnish.
It was delicious!! I topped it with crushed reese's pieces.
My family loves this. It is simple, I told my husband he could even do it. He loved it so much I made 2 of them back to back, because when he the last piece was gone, he was whining that there wasn't anymore. I melted peanut butter and drizzled it on the top with chocolate syrup.
I added a bit more PB - in place of peanut butter miniature cups, I encircled the pie rim with mini-pie sliced from the peanut butter cups - it was cute. I topped the cool whip topping with drizzled warmed peanut butter fudge topping Gave a modern look and was yummy!
I made this for the first time and it's AMAZING! I altered the recipe slightly by adding hot fudge right out of the jar, directly onto the crust. Then added the filling and topped it with the crushed up Reese's. I went a little heavy on the peanut butter because I love the stuff. Great recipe
It was yummy. I wanted more PB flavor so added another 1/4 cup and chopped the PB cups for added flavor . Added them inside and on top
Next time I might use a little more peanut butter.
Complete deliciousness!!! Soo good I've made it 3+ times since finding this recipe. Made with a graham crust & an Oreo crust -both ways are great. It's rich, sweet, not too heavy. So quick and easy to whip up anytime.. even last minute before having company over. Sometimes I'll top with the candy but most of the time I have not just bc I didn't have it in. It's good as it is without it. Just drizzle some chocolate syrup on top, cut and serve!
Awesome recipe I have made it 3 times and finally decided to post a picture. My entire family loves it and keeps asking me to make it. Thank you for this recipe!
We made and can't wait to cut into it.
I love this recipe. It goes fast when I take it to a get together. I like to drizzle chocolate syrup on it and then chopped up peanut butter cup on the top.
Loved it! I did make a couple changes … Increased peanut butter to 3/4 cup and used 8oz. cool whip instead of larger because that’s what I had , I put approximately 3/4 of the cool whip in the pie and the other 1/4 of the container for the top. I’ve made it half a dozen times! Always a big hit.
it was really easy I made the crust at home but with digestive biscuits and it tasted a lot better I definitely recommend you try it!
Yes I added about 2T of peanut butter to give it more of a brown peanut butter color. Enjoyed making it and it’s really simple and tasty.
All I can say is YUMMY!!!!!
Have made this pie many times now. I always add more peanut butter than listed and comes out great everytime. Easy thing to make for any family gathering or cook out.
My family loved this!!! Even my daughter who's not a pie girl!! Asking for another already!
I would have given it 5 stars but I was helping my grandson make it for his mother's birthday and I just skimmed the recipe. So instead of folding part of the cool whip in the peanut butter mixture we put the whole carton of Cool whip in. Even though it was a mistake it still tasted wonderful. So I will have to try it the right way next time and it will get t 5 stars
Awesome! Add Hersheys syrup and peanuts on top.
When I made this, it tasted like there was too much cream cheese and it over powered the peanut taste. I personally, the next time try it this recipe, would experiment with different amounts of peanut butter to try and fix it.
Delicious! We don't have pre-made crusts or frozen whipped topping where I live, so I made my own crust with 200 g Oreo cookies and 100 g melted butter, and whipped topping from 3 dl cream and 3 tbsp powdered sugar (I only used 1/3 of it in the filling, and the remaining 2/3 on the top). I was worried the tartness of the cream cheese would be weird with the peanut butter, but it only gave it a smooth and silky texture. A really quick an easy dessert with a mild peanut flavor. Will most definitely make again!
