Peanut Butter Pie, Oh How I've missed you ~ 4.29.10

Thankfully, once upon a time, I gave birth to twins. And something delightful happened to me after that oh so joyous occasion--- I was fed by my newest and lovliest friends at MOPS!

My friend, Michelle, brought this little gem to me and I am forever grateful to her for that meal, her friendship and THIS PIE! It's simple and with friends like Marie Callendar and the folks at Pillsbury, it can be even simpler for all of us! wink, wink

I added a little tweak right before I added the ingredients to the pie crust... you'll probably guess it has something to do with chocolate.

Peanut Butter Pie with a Twist

1 cup powdered sugar

1/3 cup peanut butter
some Nutella, if you dare
1 package vanilla pudding, prepared
whipped topping
pie crust
chocolate bar
1. Bake pie crust according to directions. Cool.

2. Mix peanut butter and powdered sugar in a bowl. It will resemble bread crumbs!!! Reserve some of this to sprinkle on top (I didn't do that- I use shaved chocolate instead)

3. Spread bottom of cooled pie crust with Nutella-- if you so choose, and you should so choose!

4. Sprinkle the nutella with the peanut butter mixture.
4b. Then add your prepared pudding on top of the PB mixture.

5. Top with whipped topping and either pb mixture or some grated chocolate!

6. Eat and Enjoy!!!

oh one more thing to note. I do believe you should refrigerate this pie overnight b/c something happens to that bread crumby pb layer when it's under the pudding. It needs an overnight to do this.


  1. I'm on this one Crafty like Donkey Kong! Oh my word do I love love love love love love Peanut Butter Pie and never knew one could be so easy to make! And I even have Nutella! I just need some cool whip and crust. The simplicity! I'm so excited. The Happy Family will enjoy this decadent treat THIS WEEKEND!

  2. Michelle just brought us a meal today and she made us a peanut butter pie. Can't wait to try it. Yummy!

  3. This looks crazy good - I love Nutella!

  4. Imade this for the adult dessert at my daughter's party - YUM! Next time I'll try chocolate pudding mix.
