Reviews forPeanut Butter Silk Pie
"This was easy, fast and everyone loved it. My daughter said it is as good as Marie Calendars."
"Very tasty! I definitely recommend sprinkling chopped peanuts over the top for extra flavor and crunch. I sometimes add 12 oz. of whipped topping (instead of 8) in order ot make a thicker pie - still looks and tastes great. This pie is very easy and will please the peanut butter lovers (like me!0."
"I bought a 9-inch pie crust, measured all the ingredients exactly, but the filling barely covered the bottom of the crust! Not sure what went wrong; no one else here seemed to have this problem. The filling tastes amazing though; I am going to use it as a dip instead. I added Reese's pieces."
"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!"
"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!"
"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!"
