My husband is not a huge dessert person.  It breaks my heart to go to a restaurant with him sometimes and him not order a dessert.  I like to each get one and share but he rarely goes along with that plan. Unless there is a peanut butter pie on the menu.  He is a big fan.  Huge fan.  Whenever he has been a very good boy or a it is a special occasion, I whip up one of these babies for him.  Now, I am going to put a little disclaimer on this recipe.  Eat this piece of deliciousness in moderation.  This is not what one would call a “light” dessert.  That being said, leftovers (if there are any) are a pretty delicious breakfast.  That is if you are into pie for breakfast.  Which I am.

I start with the crust.  You could easily buy the graham cracker crumbs, but I have 3 kids.  I always have graham crackers in my pantry.  I just give them a whiz in the food processor and make my own.

Add sugar and melted butter.

Press the graham cracker mixture into the pan.  I find the bottom of a measuring cup helps get a nice even crust.

I forgot to take a picture of the whipped cream, but you know what that looks like don’t you?

Here is the peanut butter, cream cheese, sugar, vanilla mixture.  It will be like a thick cookie dough.

add the whipped cream

Take your time folding in the cream, you want this to be light and airy.

Share with a friend.

For the crust:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup sugar
6 Tablespoons melted butter
Mix together and press into a pie pan.  Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes.  Let cool and start on the filling.
For the filling:
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup peanut butter (I use smooth)
4 oz. cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips (completely optional, I prefer to use the mini chips, but did not have any on this particular day)

Whip the heavy cream and set aside.  Cream together the peanut butter, cream cheese and sugar. Add the vanilla.  Fold the whip cream mixture into the peanut butter mixture.  Add the chips.  Pour into cooled crust.  Chill before serving.  Enjoy!

  10. Melody says:

    I am sorry, this may be a dumb question but is heavy whipping cream the same as whipped cream?

  11. Melody says:

    I found it last night! I am making this tomorrow for my husband’s 30th birthday party! Thanks a ton!

  12. Jennifer says:

    I stumbled on this a couple weeks ago and bookmarked it. I promised my boyfriend I’d make it, and it’s now chilling; the fingerfuls I’ve snuck are wonderful! Thanks for a great recipe.

  13. Jeff Blackwell says:

    Can you please recommend a food processor for this recipe? Thanks.

    Hey Bree! I made this last week for Wednesday Night church. It was delissssshhhh and completely gone, everyone loved it. However, I did have a little problem – mine was not creamy-looking like yours. Probably due to the fact that when I mixed up the pb, sugar, vanilla and cream cheese, the sugar didn’t really dissolve. It was really gritty looking. But I added the whipped cream anyway, and it was still all gritty. Finally I just put the whole thing back into the KitchenAid(still fitted with the whisk attachment from whipping the cream) and it finally came together. But again, it was definitely gritty-looking, even thought it tasted wonderful. So I just went with it. Any suggestions as to what I did wrong? I will say that I used reduced-fat pb. Not my choice, all we had in the cupboard. I wonder if that did it.

    • bakedbree says:

      The reduced fat peanut butter may have had something to do with it. Try using powdered sugar? I am curious as to why this happened.

  15. Paul says:

    Totally not a cook. Just a regular bachelor type guy. But I made this last week and was instantly promoted to Chef Ramsay status with the friends. (I cheated a bit and used pre-prepared Keebler brand graham crust though.). I also used a hand blender at the whipping cream stage instead of just folding it in and it came out REALLY smooth and creamy.

    Totally awesome recipe!

  16. Texas Lee says:

    Oh my! This sure was fantastic! I’m fifteen and I love to bake for my huge family, and they LOVED it! Thank you so much for this fabulous recipe! Oh, and that last picture was adorable!

  17. Steph says:

    When I tried this it was good up until i added in the whipped heavy whipping cream. the whole thing became too liquidy and i used the exact amount. i tried everything to thicken it up. ended up throwing it out.

    • bakedbree says:

      Did you fold it in? Was the cream really whipped? I made this today and have never had that problem.

    • Brenna says:

      Did you whip the cream before you folded it in? You have the whip the heavy cream in a separate bowl before hand. You do this with a mixer.

  19. Brenna says:

    Love this recipe!
    The only problem I had was that I didn’t chill it for long enough so the mixture was a little liquidly. I put it in my fridge for about 15 min and since my friends and I were so eager to try it we ate it right out of the pan because if we cut it top mixture just would of fell in. We didn’t finish the whole thing so I put it back in the fridge and came back to it in the morning and found that the mixture had hardened up and the pie was able to be cut into slices. So I would just suggest to “chill” it for a couple hours before serving!

  20. Renee says:

    Can you use pre whipped cream? I don’t have a mixer sadly…

    Very cute pic with the baby!

    I just made this for my husband on a whim, late-night…it’s in the freezer right now. I saw your recipe and I miraculously had all the ingredients so I had to try it! I sneaked a taste of the filling and it’s so yummy! This was really easy and the pie looks just like the picture. Thanks for the recipe!

  23. Kelly says:

    Will any biscuit do as an alternative to graham crackers? I’m from South Africa and I don’t think we get those here…

  25. Caryn says:

    Hey! I had the same issue with this as another girl above. As soon as I started to “cream” the peanut butter, cream cheese, and sugar, it gritted up on me. I was wondering if maybe the brand is the issue as far as the peanut butter goes. I used JIF peanut butter, Philadelphia cream cheese, and C&H sugar. Did you use granulated or confectioner’s sugar for your pie? I ended up (after the second gritty batch) just folding in the cream. Still tastes great, though it’s admittedly more gritty than I feel comfortable serving up to my husband’s family tomorrow. Gonna be brave and bring my pies anyway, but I am determined to get it right next time. Any suggestions?

  26. Caryn says:

    Oh! And did you use a stand mixer or your spatula to do the creaming? Maybe the problem is that I used my Kitchenaid… Though I shudder to think that my Kitchenaid would ever be the problem.

  27. Connie says:

    These look amazing! I love the flavor combination.

  28. sherrie says:

    I just stumbled onto this recipe and i am going to give it a try… hope it turns out good for me. i have a very picky family. thank you for posting the pictures!

    • bakedbree says:

      I understand a picky family! I bet that they will love this pie, I have never served it to anyone that didn’t love it.

  29. Cindy says:

    This pie was so easy to make. Ibe never made before my boyfriend loves pb pie and told me this was the best he has ever had!!! I got points for that. This is much better than the pie with cool whip and no creame cheese.
