Reviews for Peanut Butter Pie with Cream Cheese
"Go ahead and make two pies! This is a well loved pie that will go quick. Or the second one is great frozen and pulled out for last minute desserts. Use chopped nuts, chocolate candies or PB cups to sprinkle on top before serving. As a volunteer field editor with Taste of Home, I enjoy classic recipes that can be easily dressed up for any occasion."
"I make this pie all the time around the holidays and family & friend get togethers. I add a few extra tablespoons of peanut butter for more flavor (just about my whole family are peanut butter lovers). But I love making these. So simple and delicious."
"This is such an easy recipe for this pie and it's an extra bonus that it makes two! It has just enough peanut butter and is not overpowering. I swirled some chocolate syrup on top of mine -- made a very pretty presentation! They freeze beautifully for later use!"
"I have made this several times for specialty catering - along with a million other pies from TOH - people love this pie and its easy and you get two!"
"Ive also used the crushed reese cups and shell and its great! Try reeses pieces also!!"
"This is the best peanut butter pie I have ever ate, scrumptious"
"My husband was wanting a good peanut butter pie for Thanksgiving. I happened to come across Taste of Home and this five star recipe. My husband loved it!!!! It is now a "keeper" for our home."
"I make this pie for any occasion.Each time I make it, there isn't any left overs! Its definitely one of my favorites! I even decorate it up by adding the hersheys chocolate shell to the middle of the pie.I add half the peanut filling, then add some of the "shell", then add the other half of the filling, then for the top, I swirl some shell on top and some chopped/crushed Reese's cup.So delicious!"
"This excellent peanut butter pie can't be beat! I do not have a need to try another peanut butter pie recipe after making this one."
"I didn't change the recipe at all. Have made this pie a couple of times and it is quite good and very easy to prepare. Makes two nice pies with ease."
