This peanut butter pie is just the right amount of creaminess. It is just the right amount of sweet and fluff to make this a pie that you will crave. At least I do.

Peanut Butter Pie Done Just Right
I have a secret…
Normally, I don’t like peanut butter pie. Yikes! I know… They are generally too sweet, runny, grainy, or just don’t have a good peanut butter taste. Sounds like the mama bear, daddy bear, and baby bear bed. I guess that this one was just right-tried this one and it was an immediate hit for me.
This pie recipe is a one that looks pretty and tastes amazing too.
Happy Pie Eaters
Recently, there was a pie sale for our local choir and this peanut butter pie was one of the first ones to sell out. There were four other peanut butter pies there and this one was the winner by far. A cook always wants to know that their food is enjoyed and there is no better reward than seeing it fly off the table by happy pie eaters. A nice pie plate to display this beautiful pie in can be found here.
The pie shown in the photo has the peanut butter pie filling in two regular pie crusts (pre-baked). If you are looking for a good recipe for a classic pie crust, I have a no-fail recipe here.
However, you can put this in a graham cracker, crushed Oreo, or a vanilla wafer crust. No matter which you choose, this pie filling is sure to taste great. Here is my recipe for the graham cracker crust.
Drizzling the Chocolate
When drizzling the chocolate on top of the pie, it is nice to have a pretty design. Here is the trick…I find that it is very easy to do with a plastic squeeze bottle. I melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Then I spoon or pour the chocolate into a bottle. This is a great way to control the chocolate flow and create pretty designs. Give it a try with this bottle set. I approve.
This chocolate lattice design just dresses up this good tasting dessert.
Real Crowd Pleasing Dessert
At your next bake sale or family gathering, give this easy pie a try. I have a feeling your family will enjoy this dessert.
