The Best Peanut Butter Pie
Prep time: 2 hours 30 mins
Total time: 2 hours 30 mins
  • 18 Oreo┬« cookies
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter, at room temperature
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped peanuts
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Whipped cream
  1. Add the Oreo cookies to a food processor and pulse until you get fine crumbs (can also crush in a bag using a rolling pin).
  2. Add the cookie crumbs and melted butter to a 9-inch pie plate and mix with a fork until evenly wet.
  3. Press with your hands firmly into the pie plate, forming an even crust. Set in the freezer until ready to use.
  4. Add the peanut butter, cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, whipped cream and vanilla to a blender blend for 1 minute or until smooth and fluffy. If using an electric mixer or stand mixer, whip the cream separately and fold into the peanut butter mixture.
  5. Transfer the filling into the pie shell and freeze for at least 2 hours.
  6. Set out to thaw for 2 hours before serving, and top with peanuts, chocolate syrup and whipped cream.
Makes 1 9-inch pie
