Easy Peanut Butter Pie

This easy peanut butter pie is not only so simple to make, it’s super delicious as well.

From the crunchy graham cracker crust to the light Cool Whip topping, this pie is creamy, rich, and so delicious. But the best part is the peanut butter filling. It’s made by mixing together peanut butter, powdered sugar, and cream cheese. I don’t know about you, but I’m totally sold when I hear the word cream cheese and peanut butter together.

How to Make No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

This recipe is so easy, and it turns out delicious every single time. It’s pretty much impossible to mess it up. After making this once, you’ll already be a pro! It’ll be a quick and easy dessert recipe that will become one of your go-to treats for gatherings or just a fun dessert for family dinner.

  1. Cream together peanut butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar until well blended.
  2. Add the milk and mix again.
    Pro-Tip: Filling should be smooth, but liquid enough to pour.
  3. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and level it off using a spatula. 
  4. Spread Cool Whip or whipped topping over the top of the pie. Sprinkle with chopped, roasted peanuts as garnish (optional).
  5. Freeze and allow to set.
    Pro-Tip: It only needs to be in the freezer until it sets completely. Usually, this will take about 3 hours. But, you can keep it in the freezer until you are ready to serve. Cover the pie with plastic wrap, or a plastic pie lid before placing it in the freezer.

Substitutions and Additions

  • Graham Cracker Crust: For all you chocolate lovers out there, you could totally swap out the graham cracker crust for an Oreo crust. What’s better than peanut butter and chocolate? You could also make a homemade graham cracker crust with chocolate or regular graham crackers. 
  • Roasted Peanuts: The roasted peanuts as a garnish are totally optional. You could leave them off, although they add a nice crunch! You could also swap them out for a different garnish altogether. Crushed Reese’s cups or Reese’s Pieces would be awesome to top the pie off!

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Serve This Recipe

When you’re ready to serve the pie, be sure to take it out of the freezer at least 5 to 10 minutes before you plan to serve it. That way, it will be the perfect softness when you go to cut it. It should have an ice cream like consistency.
You can serve it as is, or if you want to get a bit fancy you can add a few more garnishes. For example, I like to add a drizzle of chocolate syrup or melted peanut butter. It just gives it a nice look, and adds a bit of sweetness!
We also love to crush peanut butter cups or Reese’s Pieces on top to give it some other crunch and decoration.

How to Store This Recipe

You’ll want to keep any uneaten peanut butter pie (in the unlikely case that there is some) in the freezer. Simply rewrap it with the plastic wrap from before or put the plastic pie cover on top and pop it back in the freezer! Simple as pie. 😉
