We had a guest coming to spend the night and I was told they really liked peanut butter. Yea! See, Mr. Fix it does not like peanut butter so I never get the chance to make any thing with peanut butter. I wanted to make an ole fashioned peanut butter pie. This is an ole version of the cream cheese peanut butter pie. It is light and creamy, great choice for a dessert. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Guess what Mr. Fixit even ate a piece of the peanut butter pie. He said pretty good for peanut butter…light creamy and purdy tasty! Enjoy!
Creamy Peanut Butter Pie
1 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter, plus 2 tablespoons for top of pie
1 – 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 – 8 oz containers cool whip “Real” whipped topping, thawed
1 prepared chocolate pie crust
1 – 11.75 oz jar Smucker’s Hot Fudge Topping
2 teaspoon vanilla paste
Beat together 1 1/4 cup peanut butter, cream cheese, vanilla paste and sugar in large bowl with an electric mixer on medium, until well combined. Gently mix in 1 container of whipped topping until thoroughly combined. Spoon mixture into pie shell. Using an offset spatula, smooth mixture to edges of pie.
Rederve 3 tablespoons of hot fudge topping into a squeeze bottle; set aside. Microwave remaining topping on HIGH for 1 minute. Stir. Spread topping over pie, covering entire peanut butter layer. Should use one half of container. Refrigerate until set. Spread remaining container of whipped topping, over hot fudge layer, being careful not to mix the two layers. Place many spoonfuls of the whip topping all over then spread, this makes it easier to cover and not mix them together.
Use a squeeze bottle to drizzle fudge topping over pie. Place remaining 2 tablespoons peanut butter in another squeeze bottle and squeeze to drizzle in opposite direction from fudge. Refrigerate until ready to slice and serve.
Vanilla Paste Product ~ I purchase this at many different stores. I have found it at Whole Foods, William Sonoma,Fresh Market and Trader Joe’s. This is a wonderful product and think it is far better than regular vanilla. It is a little thicker and filled with vanilla beans. You can see the vanilla beans in your end product. Wonderful stuff…If you do not want to invest in the additional product use vanilla extract in it’s place. Thanks!
