I usually adore Paula's recipes, but this one was a dud. The leftovers sat in our fridge...which never happens in our house...for days. Not sure why others love it so much. There was no truly defining peanut butter taste to it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
With some sliced bananas on top... Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The easiest and best pie I've ever made! I did add cool whip, the swirled chocolate on top with crushed up reese cups on top!! It was delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this pie recipe! Like several others here, I used a chocolate cookie crust. I also made a whipped topping to cover it (1 cup heavy cream whipped with 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Highly recommend sticking with the crunchy peanut butter! Absolutely delicious! Will make again soon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a pretty good peanut butter pie, but it wasn't as rich as my original recipe. Next time, I will add another 4 oz. of cream cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love peanut butter, but I couldn't imagine how a peanut butter pie would taste. I loved it, and so did my guests. It's a pretty rich dessert, but that's what Paula does best! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This pie is very tasty and so easy to make! I love peanut butter but not usually a fan of peanut butter pies because they are to rich. The whipped cream in this recipe really makes this pie. Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fantastic!!! I also used creamy peanut butter (because I have dentures. It is better chilled overnight like Kait21 said. It has a cheese cake consistency instead of the pudding type pies, which is great. Use your extra whipping cream and make some to top it with....mmmmmm item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely the BEST peanut butter pie! And so easy to make! This was the first Paula Deen recipe I've ever tried and I LOVED it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really good peanut butter pie! I think I may have liked it better if I used a chocolate crust. However, I did add melted hot fudge and crumbled Reese's to the top of the pie! Great addition! It needed the chocolate to contrast with all of the peanut butter. I felt that the pie tasted a lot better after sitting over night in the fridge instead of eating it after a couple of hours chilling. However, REALLY creamy and smooth. Would make again, but would add the chocolate crust! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This pie is amazing! I made it for a bake off at my company picnic and I won first place, the pie was gone in just a few minutes and everyone was asking for the recipe! You can't beat the simplicity of it either. I did use an Oreo chocolate crust and I used creamy peanut butter (mostly because I don't like crunchy and I also topped it with Shell (it's a chocolate that hardens when it gets cold and I felt that broke up the richness from all the peanut butter. Please do yourself a favor and try this! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This pie is tasty and very easy to make. I did cut back on the sugar, skipping the granulated sugar in the whipped cream and cutting back the powdered sugar to around 3/4 cup. Still seemed plenty sweet to me! In fact, I was wishing I had some salted peanuts to add to the top--I think that would have made a great contrast. I also made a chocolate cookie crust as I didn't have any graham crackers. I think more chocolate would have put this pie over the top. Next time I'll add some melted chocolate on top like others have suggested, or perhaps make a ganache and add to the crust before the filling. Still a good solid base to work from. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this because I love peanut butter. It turned out amazing. The only little thing I added was I melted a milk chocolate Lindt chocolate bar and drizzled it on top of the pie. It was the perfect topping to this delicious, decadent pie. Also a great pie to bring to a party ... super easy and people will think you spent a lot longer making this than you really did. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for Father's Day, and it was wonderful. Instead of heaving whipping cream, I used an 8oz tub of Cool Whip and omited the 1/4 cup of sugar since cool whip is already sweetened. I dressed it with hersey's chocolate syrup on top. I would definitely make this again, for family and get togethers, it's a great dessert. item not reviewed by moderator and published
All I have to say is that my husband was speechless after he took a bite of this pie! We love it, and it is soooo easy to make. I did not have crunchy peanut butter on hand, so I simply used natural creamy peanut butter, and it was still wonderfully delicious =) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe!! We were looking for a "Resses Peanut Butter Cup" recipe and used this one for the base-few additions, we made a chocolate ganache and covered the graham cracker crust with it. We them put some of the whipped cream aside and covered the top with it. We then drizzled the remaining ganache over the top. I have never received so many raves about a dessert. This ones a keeper!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hands down...the best Peanut Butter Pie I have EVER put in my mouth!! My Daddy, God rest his sweet soul, loved peanut butter AND this pie so much!! I have wonderful memories of making it for him and watching him eat it with pure joy!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This Peanut Butter Pie was fantastic! I am making for Christmas, and decided to make one last week just to make sure it was good....Oh and It was...It was gone in a day between my family of 3. I used creamy peanut butter, though. It was so quick and easy to make. A great no bake recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm really charged about making this for my family. I will let you know the results. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am about to make this for the second time! It is REALLY good and pretty easy to prepare. I like it with a chocolate Oreo premade crust. There is an easy crumb topping that tastes great on it. Use 1c. Confectioners' Sugar and 1/2 c. Crunchy Peanut Butter. Mix together, and sprinkle on top before chilling. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this after a disappointing recipe for the world's best peanut butter pie!!! This truly is the best peanut butter pie!! I used a chocolate crust and chopped reese's cups on top with a hershey's chocolate drizzle. Plenty of cream in the pie but if you like.....top it with more whipped cream. Thanks Paula!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an awesome peanut butter pie recipe. I have to admit that I wasn't looking to make a peanut butter pie, but looking for a good recipe for a filling to add to another of Paula's recipes... the peanut butter cupcake. Using creamy peanut butter, this recipe works great as a filling for cupcakes. I love it!!! Thanks, Paula! You rock, girl! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow, is this ever good! I'm sitting here waiting for my graham cracker crust to cool, and if it doesn't cool off quickly, the filling will be all gone because I can't stop nibbling on it! What an easy, delicious pie, even with Cool Whip substituted for the heavy cream! item not reviewed by moderator and published

i made this for the first time on my first at home cooking date, we actually had it after the penne jambalaya with andouille sausage, and chicken recipe that emeril has on here, which is also delicious i might add.... but now i get begged to make it all the time, two years later. my roommates cant get anough of it.. i always like just the flavor of the fresh whipped cream too so i usually split it in half and put half in the peanut butter mixture and the other half on top of the pie... usually topped with chocolate syrup, but this week i have peanuts! yay my roommate was devastated to come home to me having forgotten that i was supposed to make this earlier in the day so i could have it set after we ate dinner [which was the alton brown vegetarian steamed dumplings make with pork instead of tofu, and the sesame noodles with chicken. all of which DELICIOUS] item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this PIE! I made a brownie crust and swirled home made strawberry jam in the filling. Unbelievably fabulous, my friends actually went to the store and bought more peanut butter so I could make a second pie right away! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been using Foodnetwork.com for recipes for about as long as I can remember using the internet. However, I've never taken the time to register on their website, in order to be able to give ratings such as this one. This changed today after I made this pie. Hands down one of the best pies I've ever tasted. Obviously you have to like peanut butter but the combination with the cream cheese is phenomenal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband really loved this pie. I felt that it was way to rich and sweet. I used fat free cool whip instead of the whipped cream. I used the mixer instead of folding the cool whip into the peanut butter mixture. It made it a little lighter in texture and not so dense. I also used a store bought chocolate crust. I'm not sure I would make this recipe again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Well, I came to looking for a peanut butter pie recipe after we had a piece of PB pie at a very nice restaraunt. I found this recipe and adore Miss Paula, how can you go wrong! I made this and it was spot on compared to the yummy piece we had out! I added crushed heath bar on the bottom of the crust, whip cream on top, and crushed pieces of a heath bar on top of the whipping cream! Like I said, that was sooooo good! Lip smacking good! Thank You Mrs. Salter and Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used a premade graham cracker crust and used Smucker's Magic Shell Chocolate Fudge flavor (icecream topping) on the bottom and the sides of the crust. Just take a silicone brush to spread it and pop it in the freezer while you prepare your other ingredients. I also took some Reeses Miniture Peanut Butter Cups and froze them too. Put them in the food prosessor to break them up to add a decorative topping. Otherwise I made the pie per directions except I used creamy peanut butter (Jif). The pie was a hit at my BBQ!!! YUMMY Getting ready to make it again right now. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made a few substitutions to the recipe to reduce the fat content a little bit, and it turned out delicious!!! Instead of heavy cream, i used an 8 oz. fat free cool whip and 1/4 cup skim milk, and i used fat free cream cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My daughter made these for a barbeque that we had, and at the same time made 3 for a church luncheon. It was a big hit at both. The church ladies called for the recipe. She added chocolate to one of the pie crusts and that was a nice addition. Will certainly make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
For a twist, I made half the recipe using creamy peanut butter and half using Nutella (a chocolate and hazelnut cream available in most supermarkets). To keep it bit-sized, I filled store-bought pastry shells (Croustades, in our local market). As this is such a rich dessert, bite-sizes were appreciated more than whole pie slices. Everyone loved them and wanted to try both versions. They didn't last long. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This pie was super easy to make. It was creamy and fluffy. Just amazing! I did add chocolate on the crust before adding the peanut butter mixture. Then I drizzled some on top and added cool whip. It is a very rich pie and a small piece goes along ways. I will keep this recipe and make this again and again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made 4 for a town picnic because I didn't have time to bake, and it provided an alternative to the many (fabulous, I must say) fresh-baked summer fruit pies. I used 12 oz. Cool Whip, instead of whipped cream, making it a quick, one-bowl pie, and helping the pie keep its shape on the buffet table. The whole process, including clean-up, took 45 minutes. (The pies chilled several hours before serving.) Using a store-bought crust, a cover is part of the packaging, so you don't even have to mess with plastic wrap that gets stuck to the top of a pie like this. This is a rich pie, so it goes a along way -- another good thing when serving a crowd. All the pieces were scooped up, and the pie got great reviews! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Excellent Pie. You are guaranteed to hear M-M-M with every bite. This is a very light pie that has the consistancy of an icebox pie. I have never had any left-overs at any event in which I've made this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used creamy pb instead of crunchy, and I made a chocolate ganache to spread over the bottom of the crust. I chilled the crust for a few minutes to set the ganache, then layered the peanut butter filling on top. To finish it off, I drizzled melted chocolate over the top. DELICIOUS! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this pie for our Sunday family get-together. The family really liked it. I'm not much of a peanut butter lover, but I can say this was really great, sweet but great. My husband gave the recipe a 5 star rating. He is the world's most finicky eaters. It had to be good to get an "it's great" from him. I used chocolate crumb pie crust and drizzled chocolate syrup ove the pie. It was very eye pretty and great tasting item not reviewed by moderator and published

My husband discovered his love for Peanut Butter Pie on our honeymoon, at a small, luxury hotel. He was ecstatic when I told him I found a recipe that looked good.

EASY-EASY-EASY...I love this pie recipe! I made it tonight for a Christmas dinner with friends and it was a hit!
