Peanut Butter Cream Pie for National Pie Month


If you thought you had escaped the holidays without adding another notch to your belt, think again. Just go ahead and grab a pair of sweatpants because February is the Great American Pie Month and we Arkansans know and love our pie.

Peanut Butter Cream Pie is a true classic. Cool and creamy peanut butter filling in a buttery graham cracker crust, this recipe from “What’s Cookin’ at First Security Vol. 2” is divinely delicious!

I am a fan of a recipe you can mix up, whip up, scoop up, and serve up. This is that recipe! It is a no-bake recipe and does not use any raw ingredients. Did I mention the toppings are endless? You can add cool whip, redi whip, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, graham cracker crumbs, fudge drizzle or how about chopped peanuts to make it your own. Oh, and how good would it be to use an Oreo Crust?

Easy Peasy Pleasy Tips

  • Forget you need to soften your cream cheese? Cut up the block into small pieces and separate. Place wrap over the top while on the counter. In 30 minutes, it is ready to go.
  • Prepare a day or a two ahead of your event. Make sure to cover and keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • If using Redi Whip, wait to apply until you are ready to serve.
