Classic Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

We are total peanut butter addicts at our house. This frozen peanut butter pie is a delicious no-bake treat that’s perfect for warm weather (who are we kidding, we make it all year long).  It’s easy to whip up and even easier to devour.

You’ll need to plan ahead for this pie to freeze (but you can serve it just cold, see tips below). This recipe requires about 4 hours but only about 15 minutes hands-on time, the rest of the time it will be tucked away in your freezer. Great make ahead dessert!!

Tips For Making Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

This no-bake pie can be served frozen or cold from the refrigerator. If the pie is frozen solid, remove the pie from the freezer about 20 minutes before serving to thaw just a little.

We prefer chunky peanut butter in this pie recipe.

Use a premade graham cracker crust or chocolate cookie crust if you’re short on time, or you can make your own crust.

If you don’t have Cool Whip, homemade whipped cream will work just as well.

It’s easy to double the recipe, so keep one on hand in the freezer for unexpected guests.

When I use a graham cracker crust, I melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips and spread in the bottom of the crust, then layer peanut butter filling on top of the chocolate layer. Replace peanut butter with Nutella for a great alternative!

Top with chocolate syrup or hot fudge sauce and chopped peanut butter cups if desired.

The pie can be tightly covered with plastic wrap and stored in the fridge for three days.

It’s the perfect summer treat with an amazing vanilla-orange flavor combo and comes together in 10 minutes.  The hardest part is waiting for it to set up in the freezer, although I have a little solution for that.

Frozen Strawberry Squares is a frozen dessert made with fresh strawberries and whipped cream is easy and can be made ahead a couple of days.

Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut Butter Pie

Yield: 8 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Freezer Time: 4 hours
Total Time: 4 hours 15 minutes

Peanut butter lovers will rejoice over this retro Frozen Peanut Butter Pie with cream cheese and peanut butter filling and graham cracker crust that's ideal for any occasion. The rich decadent no bake-pie has been made in our home for decades.

Ingredients

  • 1 graham cracker or chocolate cookie crust
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter (chunky is best, but smooth will work too)
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 oz Cool Whip

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whip cream cheese until soft and fluffy.
  2. Beat in peanut butter and sugar.
  3. Slowly add milk, and blend thoroughly.
  4. Fold in Cool Whip.
  5. Spoon into pie crust.
  6. Freeze for several hours before serving.

Notes

Serving: If the pie is frozen solid, you will need to let it sit out about 10-20 minutes before serving. I also like to serve this pie cold, not frozen, both are good! garnish with chocolate syrup and/or chopped peanut butter cups.

Variations: If you don’t have Cool Whip, homemade whipped cream would work just as well. When I use a graham cracker crust, I melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips and spread in the bottom of the crust, then layer peanut butter filling on top of the chocolate layer. Replace peanut butter with Nutella for a great alternative!
