No-bake desserts are great for any occasion! They are perfect for the summer months when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen and they are also great for the holidays because you can make them ahead of time!
This peanut butter pie is amazing for any holiday, or even just a weeknight! It was a huge hit at our 4th of July celebration this year and I’m planning to make it for Thanksgiving to add some variety to the dessert table!
The thing that really puts this peanut butter pie over the edge of deliciousness is the crust. It is made with Nutter Butter cookies and it is buttery, crumbly, and full of peanut butter flavor. It is also crazy easy to make!
Can I use a premade crust for this peanut butter pie?
Absolutely! The Nutter Butter crust is amazing but if you are pressed for time or want something to make this recipe quicker and easier you can easily grab a premade graham cracker crust. You could even use a chocolate cookie crust if you want to add some chocolate flavor into your pie!
What other swaps can I make?
There is a lot of variety you can add to this pie beyond just the crust. This recipe calls for cool whip but if you want to use homemade whipped cream that would add a delicious creaminess. You can also swap the chopped peanuts for chopped heath bars, peanut butter chips or chocolate chips. You can add a chocolate drizzle over the top or even a strawberry one for a peanut butter and jelly flavor!
There are no rules as to how to dress up this peanut butter pie so you can add whatever toppings sound good to you! You could even do a toppings bar if you are serving it for a party!
Make sure to plan ahead a little because it does need to freeze!
Here’s how to make this No Bake Peanut Butter Pie
For the crust-
About 23 Nutter Butter Cookies
6 Tbsp of Butter (melted)
For the filling –
1/2 Cup of Milk
1- Cup Powdered Sugar
3/4 Cup Creamy PB
4 oz Cream Cheese
1 Container Cool Whip- thawed
/4 Cup Chopped Peanuts
First we’re going to make the crust. You’ll need to crush the Nutter Butter cookies into crumbs. You can use a food processor or place them in a zippered baggie and crush them using a rolling pin. Either way crush them into crumbs.
Then mix together the cookie crumbs with the melted butter and press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a pie pan.
Place the pan in the freezer while you work on the filling. (At least 15 minutes)
For the filling you’ll need to cream together the cream cheese and peanut butter using an electric mixer. Than add in the powdered sugar and milk a little at a time alternating until it is all nicely incorporated.
Now smooth the peanut butter mixture into your prepared crust and top it with the entire container of cool whip. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
Now cover it and pop it into the freezer for about 3 hours (or overnight if you are making it ahead)
Remove it from the freezer about 20-30 minutes before you are ready to serve so it can soften to make cutting and eating easier!
