Peanut Butter Pie

It has been a while since I made some sweet stuff. But this past Fathers Day I decided to make my daddy two peanut butter pies. One to share and one for is own.


Why peanut butter pie? Well. I had no idea what to get my dad for Fathers Day so I started thinking about some of my child hood memories of him.
I remember how he used to always eat Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies. Boy that’s a mouth full. 
He would say the little slogan every time he took one from the pack. 


My dad would always (probably still does) eat a spoon of peanut butter right out of the jar.. I remember smelling it on him when he would tuck us in at night and give a goodnight kiss on the cheek. 

Since those days, he has developed diabetes but has it under control. He knows when and how much sugar he can have. A peace of pie is a possible treat for him. Everyone else enjoyed a piece after we had hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill.

This pie did not disappoint and I had to share the recipe with my Sisters. Now I will share it with you. It is easy and delicious. Reminded me of peanut butter cheese cake. 

Enjoy.

PEANUT BUTTER PIE.

1 pre-made graham cracker pie crust. (or make your own.)
8 oz cream cheese. (softened)
1 cup creamy peanut butter.
8 oz cool whip.
3/4 cup powder sugar.

Mix cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth.
Add powder sugar a little at a time until mixed well.
Fold in cool whip until until blended.
Pour into pic crust and refrigerate for 5 hours or over night before serving. 

I topped mine with crushed peanut butter cups, shaved chocolate and melted peanut butter drizzle. (All optional).

Oreo cookie crust is another option to this delicious dessert.

  1. I still love peanut butter, too. One of my sweet indulgences is peanut butter and marshmallow cream sandwiches. My grandchildren loved them, too. They are grown now and I'm getting to introduce great-grandchildren! :) But your pie sounds yummy!

  2. I recently discovered this recipe. I've taken it to two different parties and made it for a family get together. It is so good. I like how you have topped yours and will do that the next time I make it. Great idea for your dad.
