Chocolate Peanut Pie Recipe

I entered this pie in our county fair, and it was selected Grand Champion. Who can resist a tempting chocolate crumb crust and the creamy filling with big peanut butter taste? Be prepared to take an empty pan home when you serve this pie. —Doris Doherty, Albany, Oregon

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 6, 2014

I have been making this pie since the original recipe was printed in TOH. I think about 1995 or 1996! My husband and son want this for their birthday "cake" every year! I am not a huge fan of peanut butter, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, this pie! I use a premade Oreo crust, but keep everything else the same. Such a rich and yummy dessert.

Such a wonderful dessert. I bought a pre-made chocolate cooky crust, used low-fat cream cheese and substituted low-fat Cool-whip for the whipping cream and loved the results! I knew we didn't need quite so many calories and the pie was creamy and very tasty with the substitutions. I will definitely make this again and again!

I love this recipe!!! I did change it from pie to bars. I changed the crust back to graham cracker crust. I make a large cook and serve chocolate pudding and layer on top of crust in a cake pan. Then I put the peanut butter filling on top and then a tub of cool whip on top of that. The filling is so rich and sweet that the pudding and cool whip helps balance it out.

MY REVIEW

I made this pie for Thanksgiving this year. It received good reviews from all that ate it. I found that serving it right out of the fridge worked best otherwise it was too soft. I bought a pre-made Oreo crust to save time and I left out the butter as I couldn't really see the need for it after all of the whipping cream and peanut butter. Maybe it would have helped bind all of the ingredients together in the end... Good Pie.
