I can’t believe that I am saying this, but I am so ready for fall. You guys are probably well aware that fall is my favorite season, but I typically don’t find myself wishing away summer this early.

I mean, it’s only August 15th. But it has been SO hot. I’m talking not wanting to leave the house, sweat off your makeup in 10 minutes hot. And if you know me at all, you know I hate being hot unless I’m lounging by a pool, fruity drink in hand.

This peanut butter pie couldn't be easier or more delicious. Whipped cream, chocolate sauce and mini peanut butter cups make it even more amazing!

Needless to say, I haven’t been baking much at all. We’ve been opting for fresh fruit and ice cream for dessert on most days – until I got a serious craving for peanut butter pie.

When I was 15, I worked at a family-owned diner that made a killer peanut butter pie, and I’ve always wanted to try to replicate it at home. Last week, I made three versions of this pie and I must say, I think I nailed it.

Except this one might be a tad bit better because it has a cookie crust instead of a traditional pie crust.

This peanut butter pie is super easy to make and the filling only requires a a handful of ingredients: creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar, heavy cream, vanilla and tangy Challenge Cream Cheese.

Peanut Butter Pie comes together in a snap with just a handful of ingredients. It's rich, creamy, and totally decadent.

I made this pie using Challenge Dairy butter and cream cheese. I love working with their products because they’re made the old fashioned way, from the freshest milk and cream from happy cows at local dairies.

They’re the only dairy product company that controls the whole process from milking the cows, to transporting milk, to making the butter, to packaging. You gotta love that!

Peanut Butter Pie is a simple and delicious dessert the whole family will love. Everyone will be begging you for the recipe!

Whip this peanut butter pie up for a special occasion or on a Monday afternoon – it’s that easy. And I promise you’ll love be eating the light, fluffy filling right off of a spoon.

A dollop of whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate sauce and mini peanut butter cups make it even more amazing!

Peanut Butter Pie

Yield: 8 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes + chill time


  • 25 whole Oreo cookies, crushed in a food processor until they form fine crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons Challenge unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces Challenge cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla
  • additional whipped cream for topping, optional
  • mini peanut butter cups, optional
  • chocolate sauce, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix together the Oreo crumbs and melted butter. Press the crumbs into the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes and cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whisk the cream at high speed until it forms stiff peaks. Transfer the whipped cream to another large bowl and set aside.
  5. Change the whisk attachment to the paddle attachment and beat the cream cheese and peanut butter at medium-high speed for 2 minutes.
  6. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla and beat an additional 2 minutes.
  7. Use a rubber spatula to fold the peanut butter mixture into the whipped cream until combined and no streaks remain.
  8. Spoon the filling into the cooled cookie crust, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  9. Just before serving top with whipped cream, mini peanut butter cups and chocolate sauce.


  • You can substitute the whipped cream for an 8-ounce container of thawed whipped topping.
  • Refrigerate pie immediately after serving.

    Do you think this would freeze well? My husband LOVES peanut butter anything – and would absolutely love this, but I don’t really eat it. Thought I could piece it out and freeze?


    • Jamie — August 17, 2016 at 4:46 pm

      Hi, Cassandra! I think you could definitely freeze the pie. I would recommend thawing it in the refrigerator for a few hours before eating. I hope your husband enjoys it!

     every cardiologist will tell you how bad it is for you!


    • Jamie — August 30, 2016 at 10:06 am

      There are actually a couple of healthier whipped topping options on the market now – like Truwhip and CocoWhip. Thanks so much for stopping by, Donna!

    Oh, my goodness! That does look like one killer pie!  I love how pretty and perfect it looks!  Usually by this time of year, I’m ready for all things fall, but I have to admit I’m loving the warm TX weather right now.  Of course, it isn’t melt your makeup hot, so that might be why!


    • Jamie — September 8, 2016 at 11:30 am

      Thank you, Jocelyn! I say enjoy the summer while it lasts! xxoo

    Somehow, diners always seem to have the best desserts — especially when it comes to chocolate or PB! As a chocoholic, I absolutely love how you added even more chocolate to your version with the cookie crust. And that filling… You better believe I would eat spoonfuls of it straight from the bowl, just like you suggested! ;) Challenge’s cream cheese must make it taste even better. Love how they use milk and cream from local dairies!!


    • Jamie — September 8, 2016 at 11:31 am

      Thank you, Amy! All the best from one chocoholic and peanut butterholic to another!

      Ha! You’re so sweet, Megan!

  17. Desiree — November 20, 2016 at 1:19 pm

    Pie looks amazing. Which peanut butter brand did you use for this recipe? I normally use smart balance creamy peanut butter for sandwiches, but I’m wondering if I need a more “peanutty” peanut butter like Skippy etc. 


    • Jamie — November 22, 2016 at 11:40 am

      Hi, Desiree! I usually use Skippy peanut butter. I hope you enjoy it!

  18. Sarah Vectora — November 22, 2016 at 7:46 pm

    Do you use the filling in the oreo’s as well or just the chocolate cookie?

    Thanks! :)


    • Jamie — November 23, 2016 at 10:09 am

      Hi, Sarah! Yes, use the filling in the Oreos as well as the cookie. I hope you enjoy it!

  19. Meagan — November 23, 2016 at 4:54 pm

    Hello :)

    I am attempting this yummy pie right now for Thanksgiving tomorrow. I am a new cook/baker so I apologize if this is a dumb question, but Do I add the filling to the springform pan that I pressed the crust into and just refrigerate the whole thing?


    • Jamie — November 27, 2016 at 8:56 am

      Hi, Meagan! Your question is not dumb, and you can always ask me anything you like! Yes, you add the filling to the springform pan with the crust and refrigerate. I hope everyone enjoyed it!

  20. James — December 13, 2016 at 8:18 pm
