DREAMY PEANUT BUTTER PIE
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A PEANUT BUTTER PIE RECIPE THAT WAS NOT SO RICH AND THIS IS IT! I LOVE THIS RECIPE BECAUSE THE CREAM CHEESE CUTS DOWN ON THE RICH PEANUT BUTTER TASTE.MY FAMILY LOVES THIS PIE & SO DO I. WHEN I TAKE IT TO A CARRY-IN DINNER EVERYONE LIKES IT & THERE IS NEVER ANY LEFT OVER TO TAKE HOME, SO, I HAVE TO MAKE ONE FOR HOME, TOO. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE!
I had been looking for a good peanut butter pie recipe for a long time. I made this for my own birthday...and it did not disappoint!
Easy to prepare, looked & tasted great. Perfect for summer since it's frozen - traveled well, too.
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.
This recipe was delicious! At first glance you think it might be too rich, but it was perfect! And easy to make too.
