Peanut Butter Pie – An All Time Favorite Dessert

by Ishani Bose last updated -

Whoever said they don’t like pies, simply didn’t know what they were talking about. Pies make for a decadent dessert and are a quintessential delicacy during festivals like Thanksgiving. Not just that, they make for an interesting recipe for Sunday brunches or weekend getaways with family and friends. The pies we know today are relatively a recent inclusion to a history that goes back to the time when man devised a way to prepare the dough in order to bake it into a crust and find things to fill it with. While we all know of delicious pies such as apple pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, blueberry pie, and chocolate pie, one recipe that almost never gets old is the peanut butter pie.

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's powdered sugar
  • 4 ounce cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 Graham cracker crust (9 inches)
  • 16 ounce unwrapped frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 15 miniature chocolate covered peanut butter cups


  • To make peanut butter pie, beat the peanut butter with the cream cheese until you get a smooth consistency. Thereafter, add the powdered sugar and continue to beat until it becomes smooth. To this smooth paste, add in the thawed whipped topping and keep beating it until you reach a smooth consistency, grazing the sides as required. 

  • Spoon the mixture into the graham cracker crust. Take a knife or spatula and even out the surface of the mixture. 
  • Garnish with miniature chocolate-covered peanut butter cups. Before serving it, chill either for 6 hours or a whole night, depending on the time you have.
