Reviews for Creamy Peanut Butter Pie
"This pie was really yummy when paired with a scoop Belgian Chocolate ice cream. You only need a small piece as it is very rich. I used a regular pastry crust that I baked off first and cooled. I also used miniature Reese's and it looked and tasted wonderfully!"
"Great recipe, easy to throw together and well received by those lucky enough to eat it. Liked the candy garnish. May add a layer or swirl of chocolate sauce/hot fudge and some peanuts next time. Will make again for sure."
"Great hit! delicious!! Thanks!"
"Yummy! I added a tub of coolwhip instead of 2/3c. Came out delicious!"
"This is my grandsons favorite pie. He always asks me to make it for every holiday. I don't mind because it is so easy to make. I use my food chopper to chop up the peanut butter cups."
"Love this pie!!! Super quick and easy to make. I speed up the cooling time by putting it in the freezer for half an hour, then switch it to the fridge because I'm too impatient to eat it!"
"This was such an amazing pie. I only used 1/4 cup of sugar and the filling was perfect! I topped it with a thin layer of whipped topping and I only used 8 peanut butter cups in total, 4 for inside and 4 on top!! Yummy! Thanks for the recipe!"
"Loved this! I used the mini PB cups, too. What a wonderful and simple pie!"
"Very easy to make and the family loved it."
"This recipe makes an incredibly rich and delicious pie! I made a few adjustments that I feel make it a little better; I used 1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar instead of a full cup because the whipped cream and the peanut butter itself adds a lot of sugar. This made it less glaringly sweet. I also used just a little bit more peanut butter and a full cup of whipped cream. Turned out Great! And, buy the small bags of mini peanut butter cups that are with the candy at the check stands in the grocery store; its economical and their small size quartered is perfect!"
"Easy, light, yummy. Love the creamy filling!"
"Excellent and my son-in-laws very favorite, thank you for sharing!"

"next time i will cut down the sugar. Way too sweet! i think i would do 1/4 cup sugar next time."
"I'll be honest, I'm not a big fan of peanut butter, (I made it for a family gathering) figured I'd try a tiny slice--AMAZING! Easy to make, everyone enjoyed it alot! This one disappeared fast. I used those new mini peanut butter cups, that made it easier too."
