Peanut Butter Pie

Today seems like a good day to try out a recipe I got from a lil lady by the name of Mary, who is one of the NICEST ladies I've probably ever met in my life. She truly knows the secret to life...just love it and laugh often (or favorite thing about her!).

Mark Dean is off to taking care of a few professional things. So I think I should have one of his favorite things in life ready for him...anything to do with peanut butter.

I thought I'd share the recipe and return with a picture and a critique from Mark Dean.

This is how it went into the refridgerator...semi-pretty.
Peanut Butter Pie
1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup Sugar
1 - 8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1 - 8 oz. Cool Whip, thawed
9 in. Chocolate Crumb Pie Crust
1 cup Hot Fudge Topping, room temperature

In a large bowl, mix peanut butter, sugar, and cream cheese on medium speed untill smooth, scraping sides occasionally.

Fold in 1/2 of the Cool Whip.

Spoon peanut butter mixture into pie crust.

Spread fudge topping on top of this layer.

Top with remaining Cool Whip. Drizzle, if desired, with melted peanut butter and/or fudge topping.

Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.
This is how I found it after letting it chill for 3 hours.
Mark Dean's piece...not-so-pretty.

Mark Dean's review:
It tasted familiar. Wonder why?

That's all I got out of him. But the pie was gone this morning so, I'm guessing it was pretty darn good. (Notice: I don't know for sure because I didn't get a piece!)
I post this on:


  1. I think peanut butter pie is one of my all time favorites. I need to make one soon. The creamy smooth filling is just rich enough but not too rich.

  2. Anything with peanut butter is a winner! Sounds sooo good. We have a little dappled dachsund baby, too! :) I am visisting from Quit Eating Out!

  3. Saw you on Saturday peanut butter and pie. Together in one dish? Even better!

  4. I could go for a slice now. It certainly looks easy enough to make and I'll bet it's delicious.

  5. Ladies, thank you for stopping by! It was def. easy to make and well worth the few minutes it took to please my hubby! :)
