This pie is awesome! Like some of the other reviewers, I made this in a 13x9 pan and added a layer of chocolate pudding (mixed with a little bit of whipped cream) above the peanut butter. It wasn't as rich as some peanut butter desserts so we were actually able to eat a full serving of it.
Big WOW!! This pie tastes so good, I had to make myself share it with the rest of my family. I used the Nutter Butters for the crust which really intensified the peanut butter flavor. The filling was so rich and creamy and I did drizzle chocolate syrup on top. Looked spectacular. I should have just spread the stuff right on my thighs ;)
I worked in a restaurant outside of Washington DC for many years and we had a peanut butter pie that had, basically, the same filling but we put in a handmake graham cracker crust. Best seller! But WOW is the taste elevated with a Nutter Butter Cookie Crust!! It's great to make ahead, before you start cooking dinner remove pie from freezer or just a slice or two and let sit on kitchen counter. When ready to eat, I drizzle with chocolate syrup over the slice and the plate, chopped salted peanuts and whipped cream. I guarantee your last bite is going to be trying to scrape the chocolate off the plate with every last crumb!
Love this pie. So easy and delicious. You can vary the crust, once I used brownie crumbs for a chocolate and peanut butter pie. Thanks, Leta, for posting a keeper recipe!
Very rich and creamy! I did not freeze my pie, just refrigerated it as that is how we like ours. I added a layer of Cool Whip and chopped Reese's on top. Yum!!!
Wonderful recipe for peanut butter lovers! This was a huge hit with our family, but I found it to be a little too rich for my tastes.. and that was even after my hubby cut the sugar down to just 1/2 cup, heh. I think next time we'll try what others suggested and layer with some chocolate pudding - that sounds amazing!
Oh - this is going to be sooooo bad for me...but it tastes AMAZING! My hubby is a huge peanut butter fan, too, and he loves it. We have tried it exactly as instructed, and we have also made it with the chocolate pudding as others have suggested....we love both! If we have the chocolate pudding layer, we do not freeze the pie (hubby doesn't like the frozen pudding). Thanks for sharing!
My friend said this should be named orgasm pie. I used a cook & serve chocolate pudding mix (1 lg box & 2 3/4 c milk) for an extra layer. I also baked the crust first & I think that helped it stay together well. MMMMMMMMM goooooooood
This is my family's favorite also. except I split the filling up into 2 pie crusts then top each one with chocolate pie filling ( 2-pkgs. instant choc. pudding, 3 cups milk,and 2 cups cool whip). Its a big hit for all!!
This is my family's favorite! It is our fall treat I use reeses pieces or mini peanut butter cups (upside down) to dress up the top of the pie when I take it for a dessert. We also like to make mini cups of the filling and just eat that... but beware it is very rich a little bit goes a long way! Try pressing it into a 9x13 pan and do bars instead of pie slices because sometimes it is too rich for a big slice.
