Peanut Butter Pie is my husband Joe's favorite dessert. But not just any peanut butter pie, it has to be my version. Cool, rich, and fluffy, it's a pie that get's devoured quickly whenever I make it for family and friends.
I seriously have to whip up two pies when I make this recipe, one for my husband, and one for the rest of my family. Seriously it's that good. I switch up the crust every time I make it and use either a graham cracker crust, or an Oreo cookie crust. When you use the chocolate crust, it taste like a big slice of a peanut butter cup candy bar. The crust is crunchy and buttery, and the filling light, fluffy, and luscious, for a pie that is out of this world good.
This pie is the perfect dessert to take to a party or potluck gathering, since it needs to chill out in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving. So it can be made in advance without any problems. If you like peanut butter and chocolate, you're going to love this pie!
