Imagine a dessert that’s both sinfully delicious and ridiculously easy to make. That’s right, no oven needed, and minimal mess!

It’s the kind of dessert that makes you close your eyes with every bite to savor the flavors fully.

Ingredients

To whip up this heavenly pie, you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Whipped cream, for topping
  • Chocolate syrup, for drizzling (optional)
  • Chopped peanuts, for garnish (optional)

How to Make

Follow these simple steps to create your pie:

  1. Prepare the Crust:
    • In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter until well blended.
    • Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish. Chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to set.
  2. Make the Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
    • Gradually add milk to the mixture, continuing to beat until incorporated.
    • Pour the filling into the chilled crust, smoothing the top with a spatula.
  3. Chill:
    • Refrigerate the pie for at least 4 hours, or until it’s firm.
  4. Serve:
    • Top with whipped cream, drizzle with chocolate syrup, and sprinkle chopped peanuts if desired.
    • Slice and serve chilled.

Helpful Tips

  • Chill Time: Don’t rush the chilling process! The longer the pie chills, the firmer it gets.
  • Smooth Filling: Ensure your cream cheese is at room temperature to avoid lumps in your filling.

Substitutions/Variations

  • Vegan/Dairy-Free: Use dairy-free cream cheese and whipped topping, along with a plant-based milk alternative.
  • Crust Variations: Substitute graham crackers with crushed Oreos or pretzels for a different twist.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I use natural peanut butter?
    • Yes, but keep in mind that natural peanut butter can be oilier, so your filling might be a bit softer.
  2. Can I freeze this pie?
    • Absolutely! This pie freezes wonderfully. Just cover it tightly with plastic wrap and freeze. Thaw in the refrigerator before serving.

Storage Instructions

Store any leftovers in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 5 days. For longer storage, freeze as suggested above.
