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 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.
