My MawMaw used to make this No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie. The recipe makes two, so we would have one at her house, and she would send one home with me! I am usually not a huge fan of peanut butter, but this pie is so light and delicious there's nothing not to love. Peanut butter and Cool Whip were both B1G1 this week at Publix. The pie crusts were on clearance at Walgreens for $.62! I did not need ANYTHING else sweet in my house, but I couldn't resist. My husband will enjoy this for sure!
No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie Recipe:
No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie Ingredients:
For two pies:
1 8-oz. package cream cheese
1-1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup milk
2 8-oz. tubs Cool Whip
2 9-inch cookie pie crusts (oreo or graham cracker)
How To Make No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie:
Beat together cream cheese and confectioners' sugar. Mix in peanut butter and milk. Beat until smooth. Fold in whipped topping (I did all of this in my Kitchen Aid mixer).
Spoon into two 9-inch pie shells; cover and freeze or refrigerate until firm.
Some recipes said to put it in the freezer for at least 2 hours and allow to thaw on the counter for 20 minutes before serving. MawMaw kept hers in the fridge, so that's what I did. If you do keep it in the fridge, make it the night before so it has time to set-up. And I do just the opposite...I put it in the freezer about 20 minutes before serving.
