Easy Peanut Butter Pie Recipe

Our easy no bake peanut butter pie recipe is sweet, creamy and completely delicious.

When I say that my easy peanut butter pie recipe is EASY, I really mean that it’s easy. I’m talking no-brainer easy! This is my go-to pie recipe for carry-in events and holidays because you can quickly make it using a store bought graham cracker crust and a few simple ingredients.

Furtherore, this easy peanut butter pie tastes just rich and creamy as those fancy slices of peanut butter pie that you pay five dollars a piece for at your favorite restaurant!

Peanut Butter Pie Ingredients

  • 1 9-inch graham cracker pie crust
  • 1 package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 container whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter

I’m basically obsessed with this peanut butter cream pie. It’s my personal favorite pie right now because the texture is like a cloud.

You can make your own graham cracker crust if you want, but I love having a dessert recipe option that is easy to put together and spoon into a store-bought crust. This is a great option if you need to make several pies to take to an event or if you’re going to have a big crowd over for a special holiday meal.

I also make a version of this easy recipe that has an OREO cookie crust which is really good as well. If you’re a fan of chocolate, don’t miss my chocolate peanut butter pie recipe.

That’s part of what makes this easy pie so great. There are really a number of ways you can make this recipe your own by swapping out some of the ingredients.

You can garnish the top of your pie with the peanut butter crumbles that I used here (get the instructions below), with chocolate curls, chocolate chips or even crushed graham crackers.

I think these peanut butter crumbles are really pretty so I usually tend to garnish the top of my pie with them.

Peanut Butter Cream Pie

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

This was originally an Amish peanut butter pie recipe that I got out of an Amish cookbook. I’ve made a few changes over the years, but you really can’t go wrong with those classic Amish dessert recipes. There are quite a few peanut butter pie recipes out there, but I hope you’ll give this one a try. The flavor and texture of the pie is just perfect in my book.

Love Amish recipes? Don’t miss this recipe for the best shoo fly pie.

In fact, I’m totally craving a piece right now!

  1. It doesn’t say anything about making the crust?

  2. Can this pie be frozen?

  3. I think this is the best peanut butter pie I’ve ever had!! And it is so incredibly easy. I will definitely be making this again and again.

  4. This dessert was so delicious and easy to make. My family says it is a KEEPER!

  5. AWESOME!  This is very rich so slices can be smaller. Made this for a neighbor who loves peanut butter…all I can say is WOW! I have never left a review on here before but this was a must!

  6. Made this with chocolate gram crackers. Yummy 😋 

  7. This is my favorite peanut butter pie! I use a regular pie shell and pour some hot fudge in the bottom before cooling. Then chopped up Reese’s on top. So good!!!

  8. Is there a way to stiffen up the whipped topping (cool whip)

    I made this pie for a friend for his birthday.  He loves peanut butter cookies, and I had an extra pie crust I had made, so made the pie instead!  I did add about a 1/4 cup more peanut butter.  Everyone enjoyed the pie.  I will definitely make it again!

  10. I used a Oreo crust & added Crushed Oreos to topping. It was a big hit at Thanksgiving dinner.

  11. Been making this exact recipe for years but without the topping. sounds like a great addition. no one can resist it. and oh so easy!!!

  12. Could I make my own whipped cream, or would you recommend the store bought container? 

  13. This was so easy and so good!  Pie didn’t last long. 

  14. Love this  recipe, I made this last week for a small gathering of friends and family; everyone loved it!  Definitely  a keeper! I made a homemade cinnamon  Graham   cracker crust! Yummy tasting crust!!❤️❤️?S 

  15. Absolutely wonderful!  My hubby said it was the best peanut butter that he had ever eaten !

  16. This pie was amazing! I used an Oreo pie crust and no peanut butter crumbs, absolutely yummy!

  17. Made it and everyone loved it.  Will definitely make again.

  18. I’ve made peanut butter pies for many years. Tonight I made one using your recipe. It’s very good. Thanks for sharing.

  19. I have never eaten a piece of peanut butter pie but my boyfriend loves it. I looked up a recipe and found yours. I made it for him. Now mind you he is very picky but he absolutely loved it.
    Thank you for posting on Pinterest.

  20. I make this same pie, but I like to put Smuckers Magic Shell Chocolate flavor on my graham cracker crust (use a silicone brush to spread it then freeze) then once the shell is frozen, I put in the filling and top with frozen Reece’s Peanut Butter miniature cups (the ones without the paper wrapper) that I broke up in a food processor. My family loves it!  So many different things you can do with this pie. I love your idea for the peanut crumbles on top. May try that next time I make it.

  21. Question: Think you could make this pie ahead of time and freeze it? Can’t wait to make it! Thanks!

  22. Just as you said, “Easy and Delicious” Family members are adamant that I make it again. I might try switching out the peanut butter for Nutella.

  23. Super easy and omg it’s good!

  24. Delicious and so EASY! 

  25. So I made this pie for Friendsgiving and it was a huge hit!! And so easy to make. I made a gluten free cookie crust and was able to share it with my friends who can’t have gluten which was a huge bonus!! Shared it with my Mom today and she said it was better than grandmas… needless to say I’ll for sure be using this recipe again! Thanks for sharing! :)

  26. What is topping? I’m Aussie so perhaps lost in transport – we don’t have a product called topping that you thaw – to the best of my knowledge…?

    • Hi Nate, so here we have a product called Cool Whip (which we refer to as ‘whipped topping’) that you buy in the freezer section. Looks like you don’t have that in Australia! You can also use the whipped cream you buy in the spray can or make your own whipped cream.

    • Hi Nate, you are soooo lucky you don’t have that product it is made with petroleum oil by products it’s absolutely terrible (although it tastes amazing…crazy how if you add sugar to poison people will eat it…same sort of thing with this crap in my oh not so humble opinion) anyway having said that I’m using whipping cream which is a 35% milk fat you May call it double cream?  I’m not sure if it will hold up because I’m also not using a store brand of peanut butter I’m using only the all natural no added anything so I’m not positive if it is going to remain silky and smooth but if I see the consistency weaken or begin to liquify I’m going to just put it in the freezer and then we can eat it as a frozen pie which should still taste amazing.  Basically I changed the recipe up to be keto and for the crust I just used a little bit of almond flour and coconut and some butter and pressed it into the pan and put it in the oven for 10mins just long enough to brown them up a little ….so we shall see fingers crossed!

  27. I make this in a chocolate crust with chocolate sprinkles on top. My sons’ all time favorite!!

  28. The peanut butter pie recipe is amazing! Super easy to make. A new family favorite!

  29. Excellent pie, very quick to make and enjoyed by all.

  30. Super easy and delicious!

  31. This pie looks and sounds delicious.  Baking is one of my hobbies.  I recently got into no bake goodies.  I was skeptical at first, but when I took a bite of the no bake eclair cake, I was hooked.  I am definitely going to make the peanut butter pie for Thanksgiving.  Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  32. Can you make this recipe as Bars, or if I need several pies, how much filling in each? Thank you

  33. I make my peanut butter pie the same way except I add crumbled butterfinger bars to the filling and crumble them over the top! Dee-lish!!
