I told everyone on my Valentine's post that I have an easy delicious Peanut Butter Pie recipe. It takes about fifteen minutes, doesn't require any baking, and happens to be my husband's favorite pie. Next time you need a quick desert, try this.
1 graham cracker pie crust
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 box French vanilla instant pudding mix
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 tub Cool Whip
Using a fork (or your hands if you don't mind them messy), combine the peanut butter and powdered sugar in a bowl and mix until it forms little crumbles. Dump the peanut butter mixture into the pie crust, setting a few crumbles aside for garnish. Mix the instant pudding and milk, then pour into the pie crust over the peanut butter. Give the pudding a few minutes to set, then top with a layer of Cool Whip. (I don't like to use the whole container of Cool Whip or the pie seems too sweet.) Sprinkle garnish on top and refrigerate until ready to serve.
This recipe makes a rich peanut butter pie without a lot of hassle. It's why it's one of my favorites to make, and thankfully it's also my husband's favorite pie to eat. If you want to work a little harder at it, you could make a traditional pie crust from scratch, but my family likes the graham crackers with the peanut butter. So go ahead, buy the ingredients and surprise your husband and kids one night next week with your 15 minute recipe!
