Dreamy Creamy Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut butter fans love both the crust and creamy filling of this popular pie. With two young children in the house, a lot of my baking happens after bedtime! —Dawn Moore, Warren, Pennsylvania

    This is one of my favorite pies of all time. I love peanut butter so I made this yummy pie. I made it with the butter finger crust and also I did a graham cracker crust both were delicious. I didn't have the chocolate shavings so I used toffee/chocolate bits and it was very good!

    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.

    This pie was fantastic. I opted to put the filling into a chocolate graham cracker crust, it was wonderful.

    This is INCREDIBLE!!! Everyone at my party loved it. Instead of fussing around with the chocolate curls, I bought the mini chocolate chips and sprinkled them on top. Next time I'm going to try to save a little time by substituting Cool Whip for the whipped cream from scratch.

    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 :)
