Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Recipe by sheepdoc

From a blog - the blogger attributed it to "Off the Eaten Path" cookbook. I made my own sugar cookie dough. Time does not include 3 hours chilling time or warming to room temperature before serving.

This is a very fudge-like type of pie. I suggest reducing the confectioner's sugar by 1/2 cup at first and then adding bit by bit until you get the texture you'd like as mine ended up a bit dry. The chocolate covering became a hard glaze which lifted a bit from the peanut butter layer when cutting. It has a nice sweet flavor. Based on the title it is like a peanut butter cup in texture and sweetness.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Press cookie dough into a greased 9" pie pan to make a crust.
  3. Bake 30-40 minutes, until golden. Allow to cool.
  4. Mix peanut butter, water, 2 Tbsp melted butter, vanilla, and one cup powdered sugar until smooth, using an electric mixer.
  5. Stir in additional 2 cups of powdered sugar. Mixture will be crumbly.
  6. Press the peanut butter mixture into the crust.
  7. Melt 1/2 cup butter in microwave until about 1/2 melted, then add chocolate chips and microwave until almost melted. Stir until smooth. (Don't burn the chocolate!).
  8. Pour chocolate mixture over peanut butter mixture, spreading to edges.
  9. Chill 3 hours.
  10. Cuts better if warmed to room temperature.
