So good and so easy! I used the new whipped peanut butter by Jiff and it was a hit!

Everyone loved this recipe. It was really fluffy and simple to make. It doesn't say but the cream cheese should be at room temperature. I mixed the cream cheese, sugar, and peanut butter with a mixer until well mixed then folded in the cool whip (which should be thawed). I wasn't sure how long it needed to be chilled but I allowed for one hour.

This pie was so good but I had to change a few things as I went along. When I finished the pie mixture I had to taste to see if it came out ok. All I seemed to taste was the cream cheese,cool whip and a little of the powdered sugar. I barely tasted any of the peanut butter. So I would add about 2 Tbsp. of Peanut butter and about a tsp. of 10x or powdered sugar & fold in. I would taste & again still didn't seem like enough pb so I added 2 Tbsp. more but no more powdered sugar. I believe by the time I was done I used pretty much 3/4 of my jar of pb. Now it may depend also on what kind of pb you use. So I would suggest that you taste it and see if it meets your peanut butter or sweet requirement, lol. I think I had to add more because my husband didn't get our usual brand, but it wasn't generic that he got but I am not that fond of it. But it's better than nothing.. But honestly this pie is awesome. Every bite was a delight and was so relaxing for me. I love pb. My brother has a friend who makes pb pies for him and he has gave me a few peices here and there and I just had to make one for myself. And it is easy to do. This is so easy that my daughter who can't bake could easily do this pie. This pie now will be forever in my recipes to fix occasionally. Would like to fix all the time but I don't want to gain all those pds from it..GREAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT PIE!!!!!

This was delicious. The only change I am going to make is to use whipped cream cheese instead of the block to give it a really fluffy mousse texture. I put a layer of melted chocolate chips and allowed it to cool before I put the filling in. Topped it with a little swirl of whip cream and some chocolate shavings. Looked very fancy and bakery quality but yet so easy. Everyone enjoyed it and it was the first dessert to go.

This would be a good recipe for children to prepare if they are old enough to use a mixer

I would love to try and make this for my restaurant in the philippines but we cannot get cool whip here. Could I use regular Cream and get a similar result?. I would appreciate your help

This is the easiest peanut butter pie ever and that is coming from someone who is NOT a great cook. So, if I can make it ANYBODY can. I found this recipe and made it last year for Christmas last year. I also, recently, took it to Thanksgiving.I made it just like the recipe said, except, I shaved chocolate curls on top from a Hershey bar, instead of the syrup. It turned out great both times!!! It was the first time that I have ever made anything that got great reviews, so I'm sticking with it. As a result, it will probably show up at Christmas again this year.

Oh, I love this recipe--I've been using it for years! I got it from a friend in college. My number one change: USE CRUNCHY PEANUT BUTTER, not smooth! It is awesome.

I dressed this up a bit using an Oreo crust and a layer of fudge and crushed oreos (before putting the filling into the crust). I used a cake tip and put a cool whip boarder on the top and sprinkled the with more crushed oreos and then a drillizing of fudge. Excellent recipie and it made a pretty pie for a peanut butter and oreo lovers birthday!!! I also used 3/4 cup of peanut butter as others have suggested.

I made 2 of these pies for Easter and they were very rich but delicious. A couple changes that I made was to use 3/4 cup of peanut butter for each one and instead of putting chocolate syrup on top, I shaved chocolate curls from a Hershey bar on top of each. I used the full 16 oz of Cool whip for each pie. I made one pie in a graham cracker crust and the other one in an oreo crust. Some of the guests preferred the graham cracker and some the oreo. Myself, I liked the oreo the best. The only other change I think I will make the next time is to reduce the amount of sugar a little so it's not quite as sweet.

This was pretty much the easiest recipe ever. I only used 8oz of cool whip since that's all I had and decided to used 3/4 cup of peanut butter to give it a bit more of a peanut butter flavor. Definitely made all my peanut butter loving friends happy!

I followed recipe exact and oh my goodness I love it. It was so easy. My husband (who is quite skepticle of cream cheese) went back for seconds. I cannot wait to bring it to the next party and pretend that I slaved for hours to prepare it.

I have used this recipe for a few years- this is by far the easiest and best tasting peanut butter pie ever! I am not good in the kitchen and I can even get this one right!

Really great recipe. I added chopped up unsalted peanuts to the batter, which made it a little more textured and yummy!

REVIEW: recipe rating
This pie was my signature dessert several years ago, with a few slight variations. I would use an Oreo pie crust, a layer of the peanut butter cream, a layer of ice cream fudge, then another layer of peanut butter cream and drizzle fudge over the top. But the same base was used as this pie with the peanut butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, cool whip, etc. I would occasionally make about 4 of them and take them to work for my co-workers to have with lunch. One lady said, and I quote, "This is the best pie of any kind I have ever put in my mouth." It's ridiculously easy and everyone raves about it.

Not only is this delicious, I cannot make enough of them, I mean everybody requests that I bring them everywhere I go, and for me, the best part of it is that it is just so simple to make and quick.

Been using this recipe for years! Very simple, and they freeze very well for unexpected guests! Another reviewer dropped the coolwhip to 8 OZ., but I use 16 OZ for a large, higher pie.
