Peanut butter pie. If there is a peanut butter lover in your midst, then I think they will love you forever if you make them this pie. And no baking required? That makes it even better!

This creamy peanut butter pie comes together in a snap with just five ingredients for the filling poured into a delicious crust. The peanut butter and cream cheese mixture combine for an easy, ultimate creamy, dreamy pie.

Now, if your peanut butter fan also loves chocolate as we do, then by all means, be sure to use a chocolate crust. If not, a graham cracker crust is the way to go!

How to Make Easy Peanut Butter Pie


Be sure to see the recipe card below for the full listing of ingredients, instructions, notes, and estimated nutritional information.

Peanut Butter Pie Crust

  • Chocolate Cookies – I like to use a chocolate sandwich cookie, such as Oreos to make the crust. You’ll need about 25 cookies.
  • Butter – You will need just a few tablespoons for this crust.

Peanut Butter Pie Filling

  • Cream cheese – you’ll need one package of cream cheese that is softened to room temperature. I do not recommend using non-fat cream cheese in this recipe.
  • Peanut butter – I prefer to use creamy peanut butter in my pie filling, but you can also use your favorite crunch peanut butter for additional texture to the pie.
  • Confectioner’s sugar – also known as powdered sugar, you’ll want to make sure to sift through your confectioner’s sugar to make sure there are no lumps in your sugar before mixing it into the pie filling mixture.
  • Whipped cream – I love to use my homemade whipped cream in this pie recipe. You can also use frozen whipped topping that has been thawed if you like.

Substitutions and Additions

For the pie crust, you can also substitute with graham cracker crust or with your favorite cookie in place of the Oreo chocolate cookie crust. You can also use your favorite store-bought graham cracker or cookie crust if you prefer.

For the peanut butter filling, I’ve already listed that you can use your favorite crunch peanut butter for additional crunch in your pie and can use a thawed frozen whipped topping in place of the whipped cream in the recipe.

For the toppings, while optional, I love to add peanut butter cup pieces to the top of my pie. It helps everyone to know the type of pie and also makes the pie look even more delicious! I also love to add ice cream, more whipped cream, and even chocolate sauce drizzled on top of the pie.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Peanut Butter Pie Crust

Crush the cookies into fine crumbs and mix with the melted butter. Spread into a pie dish and bake for about 5 minutes at 350ºF until set. This can even be done in advance if you’d like since you need the pie crust to cool completely before making your pie.

Peanut Butter Pie Filling

Cream together your cream cheese, peanut butter, and confectioner’s sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in your whipped cream. Spread into the cooled cookie crust and refrigerate until chilled completely, for at least an hour.

When ready to serve, top with ice cream or whipped cream, peanut butter cups, and chocolate syrup, if you’d like.

Storage Tips

To make ahead. Prepare your peanut butter pie as instructed without adding the toppings for serving. Cover well with wrap and store in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. To serve, top with the optional toppings and serve.

To freeze. Make sure that you use a freezer-safe dish, wrap it well with freezer wrap, and then place the pie plate into a 2-gallon freezer zip-top bag. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months. T

To serve. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Then, top with the optional toppings and serve.
