For this years first gathering, I decided to make a good, old-fashioned peanut butter pie.
Peanut butter is one of my absolute favorite foods and I just love cooking with it. Peanut butter pies have been made for so long in our family, I remember even my grandma whipping them up when I was little. Peanut butter pie the perfect dessert to have after a big meal of cook-out foods like burgers, hot dogs, and baked beans. I think it’s my favorite classic American dessert!

It’s just about the easiest dessert to make ever so you can just whip it up in the morning before any guests get there, set it in the fridge to keep cool, and then you just cut and serve! That’s it!

Common Questions About Making a No Bake Peanut Butter Pie
What is a peanut butter pie?
A peanut butter pie is a no bake pie made with graham cracker crust, peanut butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and whipped topping.
What kind of peanut butter should I use?
I suggest using a jar of basic, creamy peanut butter such as JIF.
Can I make a homemade crust?
Yes, if you are making your own crust, use a graham cracker crust recipe or an oreo crust recipe. Don’t use a buttered pie crust recipe, it will taste weird.
Do I need to refrigerate peanut butter pies?
Yes, because there is dairy in the recipe, the pie needs to be refrigerated after it is made.
What kind of whipped topping should I use?
Either cool whip or homemade whipped cream.
What kind of toppings can I put on my peanut butter pie?
Some of my favorite toppings to put on a peanut butter pie are peanut butter chips and a drizzle of peanut butter.
