EASY and Delicious No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Delicious and easy no-bake peanut butter pie recipe. 

I don’t claim to be a fantastic cook or baker. But every once and awhile I open my recipe binder (it creaks and a cloud of dust poofs out) and find one I love and I just have to share. You will thank me for this one! 🙂

I’ve made this “pie” for years, but for some reason it’s been a while since I last did. And now that we’ve had it again, I’m quite sure I’ll be making it weekly. Or so.

It’s SO easy. And insanely good. You will LOVE it. That is, if you like peanut butter. Or chocolate. Or sugar. 

This peanut butter pie is a great recipe for the warmer months, because there’s no oven needed! But it’s also a staple for a holiday meal.

You’ll only need a few ingredients:

Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

3/4 c. confectioners sugar

6 oz. softened cream cheese

1/2 c. peanut butter

one container Cool Whip

2 tbsp. milk

graham cracker crust

I buy the crust ready-made, and I add a little somethin’ extra by using a chocolate crust:

It takes about five minutes to whip this up – first, mix the cream cheese and sugar:

A hand held mixer does the job just fine!

Then mix in the peanut butter and milk:

I took the pictures in case you’ve never mixed anything in your life. 🙂

Finally, fold in a container of Cool Whip (hold a little bit aside for the top of the pie). 

Plop the mixture into the pie crust and cover with the remaining Cool Whip. Then resist the urge to eat it up with a (large) spoon:

Does anyone else love Cool Whip so much they could eat a whole container? I wouldn’t know that first hand.

Then comes the hardest part of the whole pie — you have to let it chill for a while. A few hours is best, but I can tell you from experience that one hour is just fine. 🙂

After it’s chilled a bit you can drizzle some chocolate over it, or maybe sprinkle some peanuts, and you have one of the easiest, yummiest desserts EVER. 

This is a sweet dessert, so you could probably get away with using a little less sugar. I have no doubt using 1/2 a cup would just be plenty tasty as well.
