No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie is a simple and delicious dessert that any peanut butter fan will love!
It’s my dad’s birthday week!
I’ve told you guys multiple times that I have the coolest dad. I know just about everyone says that but… for real. He bought me this when I was 15. All my friends were given safe, responsible-looking cars and I got a hot rod. It was pretty much the best day of my life. It took me forever to learn how to drive a standard and I don’t remember him ever getting that aggravated with me. And he only yelled a little when he had to replace the clutch. Multiple times.
Since we’re so far away from home, I wanted to make something so the hooligans could celebrate their Pops’ birthday and I thought this pie looked like something he’d be into.
I love no-bake peanut butter pies and I feel like I’ve had about a million pieces in my lifetime. It’s so delicious and really couldn’t be easier to make. The hardest part is waiting for it to set up!
- 1 chocolate graham cracker crust
- 1 8-ounce block cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 8 ounces frozen whipped topping
- whipped cream for serving
In the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and sugar until well blended. Beat in peanut butter and vanilla.
Remove the bowl from the mixer and gently fold in whipped topping. Try not to deflate it too much but you want it fully incorporated.
Use a rubber spatula to transfer the pie mixture to the pie crust. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. Top with whipped cream, if desired. Store in the refrigerator.
