- 20 peanut butter cream-filled sandwich cookies
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 1/4 cup hot fudge ice cream topping
- 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- Chocolate curls
- Place cookies in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped. Transfer to a small bowl; stir in butter. Press crumbs onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 350° for 6 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Cool completely on a wire rack. Warm fudge topping enough to spread evenly over bottom of the crust. Refrigerate.
- In a large bowl, combine pudding and milk: beat for 2 minutes or until it begins to thicken; set aside.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, melt peanut butter; stir until smooth. Add cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk. Stir until thoroughly combined and smooth. Gradually fold into pudding mixture; set aside.
- In a large chilled bowl, combine whipping cream and 1 tablespoon of sugar at a time; beat until soft peaks form. Remove one-half cup; set aside. Gently fold remaining cream into pudding mixture, but do not stir. Pour into prepared crust. Spread remaining cream on top; garnish with chocolate curls. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Yield: 1 pie (8 servings).
Reviews forDreamy Creamy Peanut Butter 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."
"It's fabulous...and personally, I save up all my calories and WW points just so I can enjoy a slice. Yes, it's that good :)"
