Peanut Butter Pie

Filed under: Uncategorized — ruralmomof3 @ 3:04 pm

The local fire department called a few days back wondering if I would donate 2 pies for the spring fish fry as usual. Just dropped them off and forgot to take a picture to put on here! Anyway. . . I LOOOOOOVVVVVE Peanut Butter Pie. . .I make it a bit different every time depending on what I have on hand but here is how I made it today:

The recipe for 2 pies:

8 oz cream cheese
1 c. sour cream
18 oz jar peanut butter
1/4-1/2 c. sugar
2- 4 serving size boxes instant vanilla pudding mix (1 cup if using bulk)
2 1/2 c. milk

Optional additional ingredients-

Cool Whip

a few tbl additional peanut butter and some powdered sugar. . .

With your mixer and a large bowl, combine the cheese and sour cream until well blended. Add the Peanut Butter and sugar and beat until smooth and the sugar is dissolved (you can start with 1/4 c and add more at the end if you think it needs it). Then beat in the dry pudding mix until dissolved. Add the milk 1 c. or so at a time until all is mixed in well. Beat on high until fluffy. Divide in half and spread into 2 pre-baked pie crusts (or graham cracker crusts or just eat it!). If you would like a little garnish on the top you can spread the whipped topping on and then. . .

Place your additional peanut butter with a half cup or more powdered sugar. Cut the peanut butter into the sugar with a fork until the combination is crumbly. Then you can sprinkle a bit of this on top of the whipped topping or, if you don’t have any whipped topping on hand, sprinkle it right on the pudding mixture.

Refrigerate for a period of time if you and the family can keep your hands off it. Store any leftovers (like there will be any. . .ha) in the fridge too. This is very rich so you can probably squeeze 10-12 pieces out of each pie if necessary. . .
