"Yum! I love all things peanut butter and this is no exception. Cool-Whip can be used as a time saver and I have also put this in a chocolate cookie crust. Great pie!"

"This lives up to its name-- dreamy! No wonder it is a contest winning pie. It is the kind of dessert you will want to prepare to impress family and friends. Very rich so pieces can be cut small. Beatufil and impressive. As a volunteer food editor with Taste of Home I appriciate desserts that deliver the "wow" factor!"

"might try sugar free pudding, skim milk, light butter,light cream cheese, do they have low fat sw. con. milk, a low sugar or f.f. topping, what about using cool whip (they have sugar free or f.f. or light),2T.SUGAR can be avoided, do not need the ch. curls"

"There are so many P-Nut Butter pie recipes out there that all seem to taste wonderful. This is no exception but at 745 calories /- how much whip cream you use, or what size slice--I cannot justify serving it or eating them anymore. They all are caloric nightmares, this one is not the exception. What would truly by a "gift" to many of us would be a Lower Saturated fat, Lower Cholesterol, Lower Carb and Lower Sodium version of this pie that tastes good. If anybody has lower-cal version to post I would appreciate it so much. Perhaps I will get busy and experiment until I come up with one I can post."
