smallz REVIEW: 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.

lupie angie COMMENT: 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!!!!!

zsa zsa REVIEW: 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

pinoy COMMENT: 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

immanuelch2 REVIEW: 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.

yum REVIEW: 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.
