Key Ingredients

For exact amounts needed see the recipe card below

Peanut Butter Filling

Peanut Butter – Use creamy for a smooth and creamy pie filling. Natural peanut butter will separate and will not work well in this pie.

Cream Cheese – The cream cheese should be softened to blend easily. Get it out of the refrigerator a few hours before making the pie and let it sit at room temperature.

Powdered Sugar – The confectioners sugar sweetens the pie.

Whipped Topping – This lightens the filling and makes it smooth and creamy.

Oreo Cookie Crust

I include directions for making a homemade cookie crust using Oreos and butter. But you can also use a store-bought crust. I prefer to use a chocolate crust instead of a graham cracker crust for this pie so that it is a chocolate peanut butter pie.

How to Make a No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

1. Make the Crust

Put the cookies in a food processor. Pulse them until they are finely crumbled. Then add the melted butter and pulse until combined.

Use a spatula to gently stir the whipped topping into the filling mixture. Don’t use a mixer and stir it until it is just combined.

Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust and spread it out evenly.

3. Freeze

Put the pie in the freezer so that the filling can set. Freeze it for about 2 hours before serving. After that, you can store it in the refrigerator or freezer.

Peanut Butter Pie Toppings

There are lots of delicious ways to top off this pie! I sprinkled this one with cookie crumbs, along with some whipped cream of course. Here are some of my additional favorite toppings:

  • Oreo cookie crumbs
  • Chocolate chips
  • Peanut butter chips
  • Chocolate curls
  • Hot fudge sauce
  • Peanut butter cups or other candy
  • Drizzled chocolate sauce
  • Mini Oreo cookies
  • Caramel sauce
  • Chocolate ganache

How to Serve

This pie is easier to slice if it is not completely frozen. So if you are keeping it in the freezer, let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes before cutting.

I prefer not to add my toppings until I am serving the pie. In addition, the pie will cut more cleanly if you clean the knife in between slices.

How to Store

You can store this in the refrigerator for 2-3 days or in the freezer for 2 months. The texture of the pie will be slightly different depending on where you store it, so it is a matter of personal preference. Either way, make sure it is covered tightly or in an airtight container.
