Peanut Butter Pie

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

I made this peanut butter dip recently, and kept thinking how, with a few adjustments, it would make a great pie filling.  So I decided to give it a try, and it came out beautifully!  This is so easy!  Not to mention, smooth and creamy and peanut buttery.  I thought it was best after setting up overnight, but it is hard to wait that long to eat it.  Light or low-fat cream cheese doesn’t usually set up well in a pie like this, but I have successfully used light whipped topping. Enjoy!


Peanut Butter Pie

Preparation 20 mins Cook Time 20 mins Total Time 40 mins


  • 1 (8-inch) graham cracker pie crust

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 (8 oz.) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed


  1. With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
  2. Blend in peanut butter and vanilla. Fold in whipped topping.
  3. Spoon mixture into prepared pie crust. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, or until firm.
 Who Dished It Up First: This is an original creation.

  20. Your peanut butter pie recipe is being “sold” on ebay, and your photo is there as well. Here’s a link to the sale page: http://www.ebay.com/itm/My-Mommas-Peanut-Butter-Pie-Recipe-/360453240021?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item53ecaff4d5

    This seller has already been reported by a number of people and photos have been taken down, but the recipes are still being sold. I think he owes you some money, since he sold yours. You might want to check to make sure none of your others are there.

  21. I made this last night and wow, delicious!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!
