    Descriptively Appropriate

    MARILYN DEBOLT from GRANTS PASS, OR

    I made the pie for a company dinner and received many compliments concerning it and requests for the recipe. The pie turned out just like the picture and tasted as good as I had hoped it would. You can always count on the combination of peanut butter and chocolate to be a winner.

    Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Pie

    Debra Stuart from WASHOUGAL, WA

    This Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie has been a instant hit for family and friends, I am always asked to bring it to potlucks. It is so good, better than dessert out!!! I just have changed the crust at times go a graham cracker one and have also put it in a 9" or 10" springform pan and it works great.

  •  Star(s)

    Delicious!

    Teresa Stanley from PRINCETON, IL

    Kate Hoppe from POWELL, WY

    This pie was really good, but extremely putzy to make. I don't think it was worth the time when there are quicker, just as good pies like this to make, however, my grandson just loved it, so guess it was worth the time afterall.

    Rich and Delicious

    Rhonda Girouard from MILLBURY, MA

    I brought 2 of these to an office party and it was a real hit. Very rich and delicious. It was easy to prepare but because I do not like to make crust, I did use a prepared chocolate crust.

    Awesome & Easy

    Kathy Hughes from Orchard Park, NY

    This is an awesome pie. I made an alteration to simplify. I used a graham cracker crust. Another suggestion... make 2 pies at once. So you don't waste the heavy cream, 1 quart of is the perfect amount for 2 pies!!!

    Peanut Butter Pie

    KAREN HUGHES from BRIDGEWATER, NJ

    Really good! We love peanut butter pie and have tried a few different recipes. The layer of chocolate on the crust makes this one extra rich. I used peanut butter cream filled sandwich cookies for the crust and 8 ounces of cream cheese. We found a new favorite!

    I've died and gone to heaven

    ILANA WILENSIK from BLUE BELL, PA

    If you crave chocolate and peanut butter, look no further for the most incredible recipe. I cut down on the sugar a bit, and used creamy peanut butter and neufchatel cheese instead of full-fat cream cheese. I don't know how it is after letting it stand for 30 minutes from the freezer because we ate it immediately while fully frozen. It was delicious.

  •  Star(s)

    Delicious!

    pam davis from loganville, GA

    I was looking to make something special that would wow my family when I found this recipe. I made one up and had it ready waiting for my husband. The next morning when I got home, the first thing my husband said to me was OHHHHH, that pie was the best thing you've made. He couldn't stop raving about it. It was fairly easy to make, and everyone loved it! now it's a family favorite.

    I was the baker at a kids Church Camp for a few years...and one of the first things I was to bake was a Peanut Butter Pie ... well I'd never even tasted a peanut butter pie before, much less made one! The recipe yield was for 250 of these pies and I wasn't too sure about mixing up anything for that many pies. The pie became my personal favorite... and your recipe turned out even BETTER ! This pie is wonderful - kids and adults love it!

    Made this 3 times already!! Everyone loved it. Had a little trouble with the "decorative top" part. Could not get the choc mixture squeezed through bag in a small line before it got hard on me again. Tried 2 times and couldn't get to do right. Tasted a lot better than I made it look!

    PATTY STACK from FT LAUDERDALE, FL

    The pie came out great, but was a little too sweet for my liking. However, I had a few friends taste it, and they liked it. I probably won't make it again because they didn't really rave about it, like they have done with other desserts that I have made.

    C Todd from LILLIAN, AL

    I tried this pie because it contains choclate and peanut butter. To lower calories, I used lite whip topping instead of whipping cream, 1/3 less cream cheese, and low-fat peanut butter. My husband and I enjoyed it! Thanks for a cool treat!

    Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Pie

    Krista Carleton from ERIE, PA

    I absolutely love peanut butter pie and have had several great tasting pies over the years. But while searching your site last week I came upon this receipe and tried it. The pie is absolutely incredible. It was easy to make although the steps in and out of the freezer were time consuming, but it turned out great. I have made this pie for two different functions and got rave reviews from all. It is a cool, refreshing desert on these hot, hot days. The week before I found this receipe, I was at a small town restaurant and peanut butter pie was on the menu. I ordered the pie and it was great. I thought I had the best tasting ever peanut butter pie that day until I tried this receipe. I love all your recipes. This is such a great website. Thanks.
