Creamy Peanut Butter Pie

I made this pie for my husband on Valentine's day and he loved it.


  I like to make a special dessert for Valentine's day for my husband. I decided to make him this creamy peanut butter pie as I have been teasing his taste buds for quite some time with this pie. I was going to make it last Thanksgiving but the family wanted my traditional chocolate cream pie. Then Christmas came and we just had too many cookies so I did not want to make another sweet. My teen did make chocolate lasagna, though. So it was finally time for me to make that peanut butter pie and since Once Again sent me four jars of their Organic nut butters, I simply had no more excuses. I am glad that I finally made this creamy peanut butter pie as it was so delicious. My husband and boys loved this rich creamy pie that was full of peanut butter flavor and it was so easy to make.



                                           Creamy Peanut Butter Pie
                                  Ingredients  Serves 8-12

            For the crust
                  14 whole graham crackers
                  1 tablespoon sugar
                  6 tablespoons melted butter
          For the filling
                 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
                 1 cup powdered sugar
                 1 cup creamy Once Again Creamy No-Stir Lighty sweetened peanut butter
                 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
                 1 ½ cups container whipped topping, thawed
      For the topping
         Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, cut into pieces

DIRECTIONS

For the crust
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Crush the graham into fine crumbs. Pour the melted butter over the top and stir with a fork to combine. Press into a pie pan and bake until set, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
For the pie filling
In a medium bowl beat the cream cheese and the peanut butter until well blended and smooth. Add the powdered sugar and beat until well blended. Gently fold in the whipped topping just until combined.
Pour into the crust and spread evenly. Sprinkle the Reese’s Peanut Butter cups over the filling
Chill for a minimum of 2 hours or overnight.

Notes: because this peanut butter has less oil than regular peanut I had to add 2 tablespoons oil to make the peanut butter mixture creamy.
