Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust 9-inch, baked and cooled or make your own crust

Peanut Butter Crumbles

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Peanut Butter Filling

  • 1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup whipped cream or 1 cup of cool whip

Whipped Topping On Top of Pie

  • 2 cups whipped cream or 1- 8 oz. container of cool whip for topping if making whipped cream, using mixer, whip together on medium-high 1 cup of whipping cream and 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar to get whipped cream texture. 1 cup of whipping cream makes 2 cups when whipped.

Instructions

Peanut Butter Crumbles

  • Using an electric mixer, in a medium bowl, add powdered sugar and peanut butter.
  • Mix on medium speed until small peanut butter crumbles start to come together.
  • If mixture is too powdery, simply add a few drops of water to the and larger nuggets will form.
  • Add half the peanut butter nuggets to the bottom of the pie shell.

Peanut Butter Filling

  • Using a mixer, mix together the dry vanilla instant pudding mix, milk and peanut butter together for 2 minutes.
  • Add in the whipped cream (make sure it's already whipped) and mix in lightly.
  • Pour pudding into pie crust on top of the peanut butter crumbles.

Whipped Cream Topping and Crumbles

  • Top with whipped cream.
  • Add half the remaining peanut butter crumbles (or as many as you want) to the top whipped cream.
  • Let the pie cool in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours to set up before cutting.

Notes

Make it frozen and sneak slices whenever you want! I won't tell!  After finished, put in freezer and slice a piece or two or three when ready to indulge.  When serving, let sit for 5 mins after slicing and then serve.
You can make the pie more peanut buttery by adding a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter or you can make it more creamy by adding a 1/2 more cup of whipped cream to the peanut butter pie filling.  We like it as written, but I've had it several ways when I was experimenting.  :)
