TIPS & VARIATIONS

  • The recipe calls for a pre-made crust but you can make your own using graham cracker crumbs. Just use the recipe on my No-Bake Cheesecake post.
  • If you need more than one pie, you can easily be double the recipe and add to either two pie shells or 1 9×13 dish.
  • You may want to freeze this pie and have it as a frozen treat! It’s just as delicious!
  • Chill this pie for at least 2 hours to give the flavors time to develop and firm.
  • Once your pie is chilled and you are ready to cut, use a large, sharp knife and make cuts across the pie. You may want to clean your knife in-between cuts for the prettiest slices.
  • To Freeze:  Cover the pie with plastic wrap and then tightly with foil (to avoid freezer burn).
  • To Serve: When ready to serve, remove the peanut butter pie from the freezer and cut it into slices with a sharp knife. 
  • Leftovers: Cover any leftovers tightly and return promptly to the fridge or freezer.
  • Don’t forget that you can serve a different crust altogether with this peanut butter pie filling. If you have whole Oreos, add them to a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. You can then combine that with melted butter and just like that, you’ve created an oreo crust!

FAQS

WHAT OTHER TOPPINGS CAN YOU ADD TO THE NO-BAKE PEANUT BUTTER PIE RECIPE?

You can’t go wrong with crushed peanuts and drizzled chocolate. You can also add on a few chocolate chips as well! And don’t forget the extra whipped cream. Chopping up Reese’s peanut butter cups would be a great addition. You can also drizzle hot fudge over the top and top with chopped peanuts, too.

CAN YOU FREEZE NO-BAKE PEANUT BUTTER PIE?

Absolutely. Just make sure to add it to your freezer with a lid and store it until you’re ready. Then all you have to do is place it in the fridge and let it unthaw slowly to enjoy.

HOW LONG WILL THE PEANUT BUTTER PIE LAST IN THE FRIDGE?

The peanut butter mixture actually does a great job of staying good in the fridge. Combined with the cream cheese, it should be good for up to 3-4 days once it’s made.

    I’ve made this twice now. Easy and so yummy. Both times I used regular pie crust and folded in real whipped cream made with heavy whipping cream. The real whipped cream holds up really well in fridge. And of course just makes it even richer . I have shared the recipie a few times already
