Peanut Butter Pie

My sweet husband put in a special request for his birthday. He chooses pie over cake any day. He loves peanut butter so this recipe was perfect for him. Thanks to Pioneer Woman for this delicious and simple recipe! I added a little extra peanut butter to make sure it hit the spot. She used 1 cup and I added an extra 1/2 cup for an extra boost of peanut butter. I hope you had a great birthday handsome hubby!


25 Oreos
4 tbsp butter, melted

In a food processor or the old fashioned way of just beating the cookies to crumbs, crush into fine crumbs. Pour melted butter over the top and stir with a fork to combine. Press into pie pan and bake at 350 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes, or until set.

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.


1 1/2 c creamy peanut butter
1 8-oz pkg cream cheese, softened (room temperature)
1 1/4 c powdered sugar
1 tub Cool Whip, thawed

Beat the peanut butter with the cream cheese until smooth. Add powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Add in the thawed Cool Whip and beat mixture until smooth, scraping the sides as needed. Pour filling into crust, evening out the top with a knife or spatula. Chill for at least an hour before serving.
