Easy Peanut Butter Pie Recipe

This rich, old-fashioned dessert was an immediate hit with three girlfriends I used to live with. Now my husband and I run a small church camp and our two boys consume a lot of our time and energy—as well as my peanut butter pie!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:8-10 servings


  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

In another bowl, combine cornstarch, sugar and salt; add milk and mix well. Pour over egg yolks; cook until mixture thickens. Add butter and vanilla; cook and stir until butter melts.
