Looking for a quick and delightful dessert that requires minimal effort? This no-bake peanut butter pie is a creamy, peanutty treat that will satisfy your sweet cravings without ever needing to turn on the oven.
- 1 9-inch (or similar) pre-made graham cracker pie crust
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup chopped peanuts (optional, for garnish)
- Chocolate syrup (optional, for drizzling)
- In a large mixing bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese and creamy peanut butter until smooth and well combined.
- Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract to the peanut butter mixture. Continue to beat until the mixture is creamy and the sugar is fully incorporated.
- In a separate mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. This will give your peanut butter pie a light and airy texture.
- Gently fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture until fully combined. Be careful not to overmix; you want to maintain the pie’s creamy texture.
- Pour the peanut butter filling into the prepared graham cracker crust, spreading it out evenly.
- If desired, sprinkle chopped peanuts over the top for added crunch and texture.
- Chill the pie in the refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours, or until it has set and is firm to the touch.
- Just before serving, you can drizzle some chocolate syrup over the top for an extra layer of decadence.
- Slice and serve your no-bake peanut butter pie, and watch it disappear!
