Reviews for Peanut Butter Silk Pie
"I can't do a fair review since I did one change. The only thing I added was 1 teas. of pure vanilla extract as I've seen in other peanut butter pie recipes. This was a really good pie recipe and it got rave reviews from our guests. I would make it again! I bake from scratch and I did cheat and bought a store bought graham cracker crust. I will make a homemade graham cracker crust next time and try it that way also. Thank you for sharing Lee!"
"GREAT Pie! I doubled ingredients and used a 12-inch pie crust. Serve slices small as it is quite rich! So enjoyed the flavors! Wonderful recipe!"
"This recipe is in fact simple and delicious! It's smooth and creamy texture was luxurious and decadent. I added a drizzle of hot fudge topping to the top of the pie and I also sprinkled some mini chocolate chips on the top as well as stirred some in. It was an instant hint for dessert tonight and one of my favorite recipes from Simple and Delicious!"
"Made it for small family gathering and it was a hit! I always make my pie crusts from scratch so it took just a bit more time. Perfect cooling desert for the summer. Thank you!"
"This is the pie I make when we don't want left-overs! Perfect recipe for making a single pie. Easily can be customized to tastes with addition of any chopped chocolate, candy or nuts. Often I only stir in half the whipped topping, reserving the rest to spread on the top of the pie. As a Taste of Home volunteer food editor I found this simple classic pie delightful!"
"I made this pie today and shared it with two of my very good friends. They just raved about it. They could not believe it when I told them how easy it was to make. They each wanted the recipe so they can make it for their family"s."
"This pie is absolutely great just the way it is. I also used this as a base for many variations. I have added chocolate ganache to the bottom of the crust before putting in the peanut butter mixture. I have used an oreo crust and a chocolate graham cracker crust. They all turn out great. Thank you for this recipe it never disappoints!"
"This was really good and so easy to make. Everyone loved it. I made my own whipped cream instead of cool whip and used a full cup of pb. I also used a chocolate crust and topped with PB cups. I did have to add a little milk to the PB mixture to smooth it out more. I'm making it again to day but I think I'm going to try freezing it for more of an ice cream texture. Great dessert for PB lovers"
"Very quick and easy to make and tasted excellent!"
"This was a very easy recipe. I changed it by adding 1 cup of peanut butter and 8 oz cream cheese. Kept the amount of sugar and whipped topping the same. Used a larger crust. My picky husband likes it. He was afraid it would be to sweet for him. I think if I had made it exactly like recipe it would have been to sweet for him."
"This was a very easy, fast recipe that tastes delicious. I didn't have peanuts for the topping and used small milk chocolate chips instead."
"Just made this recipe for tonight's dinner. It is absolutely fantastic. I used 1 cup peanut butter and instead of salted peanuts, I used milk chocolate chips and cut up Reese Peanut Butter Cups to decorate the tops of the pie. Will definately make this pie again!!!!"
"do you use a mixer to beat the pb, cc & conf sugar, or do you beat by hand?"
"Excellent recipe, been making for years and everyone thinks its complicated!! I sometimes add a little vanilla and if it seems too thick I add a splash of milk or cream..yummy!!!"
"My family thought this was delicious. Very cream but light. Will definitely make it again soon."
"I add chopped peanut butter cups and a layer of whipped cream on top and garnish it with just a few chopped peanut butter cups."
"I've been making this pie for years. My family loves it, and it always disappears at get togethers. I make two pies with it though. First, take two Oreo pie crusts. Second, divide peanut butter pie filling between pie crusts. Third, melt 4.4 oz. Hershey's candy bar in microwave till softened. Forth, whip 12 oz. Cool Whip into melted chocolate before chocolate begins to firm up. I use a mixer to beat it quickly. Fifth, layer chocolate mixture on top of peanut butter mixture. If desired, you can top this with a layer of Cool Whip and use your imagination to dress this up. Enjoy!!"
"I make this often, using a full cup of peanut butter, 8 oz of low fat cream cheese, and a cup of splenda. Sometimes I get "fancy" and drizzle a little sugar free chocolate sugar on the top. A great dessert for diabetics."
"Mom keeps this frozen so it is almost an ice cream pie. She also uses a full cup of peanut butter."
"Such an easy recipe that you can whip up in no time. A real crowd pleaser, too!"
"Loved the pie! The filling was perfect! My family loves peanut butter and chocolate so I used a choc graham cracker crust and topped with mini choc chips instead of peanuts and everyone went crazy over it! The pie was gone in less than 10 mins!"
"So easy to make and so delicious. I used an Oreo crust instead of the graham cracker crust."
"i used chocolate graham crust and it was amazing!! My favorite peanut butter pie recipe I've ever had!! love love love it!"
"I used chocolate whipped topping. It was delicious!"
"Very easy recipe to prepare. I changed it up just a bit by using and oreo cookie crust and adding 2 TBL. of mini chocolate chips to the top in place of the peanuts. Plan to make this one again!"
"Wonderfully easy and so delicious! I'll definately make this again."
"So so so good"
"Oh my word... this dessert is delicious!! I made them in cupcake form. I packed the graham crust in each one, then a little bit of hot fudge, then poured in the mixture, topped it with cool whip and chocolate shavings. Wow! They taste great frozen as well, and will easily thaw and refreeze just fine."
"THIS IS VERY EASY TO MAKE AND IS REALLY GOOD."
"This is the same recipe I've had for years and just recently made it again.. I love it.."
"This recipe is great with a chocolate cookie crust, and drizzled chocolate over the top. I also freeze this pie in the summer for an ice cream type pie. Yummy!!"
"Easy for a guy to make and pretend it was really hard."
"Awesome pie! I added Sugar Free Hot Fudge on the bottom of the crust and crushed sugar free peanut butter cups with the peanuts to sprinkle on the top."
"Made this pie for a family gathering and had to make copies of the receipe for several people right away. LOVED it !!"
"I don't know how many times I've made this pie, but it is always a hit! Rich and creamy, you really don't need to eat much to be satisfied!"
"i used cashews instead of peanuts and i added some in the mixture as well as on top for a nice crunchy texture. very good!"
"It is delicious. I have made it many times and people rave about it and ask for the recipe"
"Yummy, followed recipe..except I used honey roasted peanuts chopped for the top! Going to make this again today."
"A great, simple dessert. Subbed whipped cream for cool whip and added mini chocolate chips."
"Made this pie for a church pot luck. Not even a crumb left. Used mini chips in the pie. GREAT! Next time I am going to try using crunchy peanut butter along with the mini chips for a different twist."
"I had stopped making dessert for my husband because he never eats them.Let me tell you, when I started making this, they all came running. Even the dog!It was easy to make too.It tastes just like eating a reese's --on a cloud my daughter said. It is rich though. We each only needed small pieces."
"Had to modify the recipe. Measured everything correctly and even used less sugar but the mixture came out way too thick to fold topping into it (yes the cream cheese was room temp) ended up adding a little half and half. Used chocolate chips and a chocolate crust. Taste was ok, not a family favorite at our house."
"whole family loved this pie I substituted peanuts with mini semi sweet chocolate chips and sprinkled them over the top YUM!"
"My family loved this recipe, especially my husband!"
"I also used a chocolate cookie crust (made with 30 chips ahoy cookies and 1/4ish cup butter). It was easy and it turned out great! I would probably let it chill overnight to let it set up completely."
"I made this for my mom's birthday in a kitchen with almost no supplies and it was quick and easy. I substituted a chocolate crumb crust and used mini chocolate chips on top instead of peanuts."
