  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Directions

FOR THE CRUST-

Mix the first three ingredients together by hand and press into a pie plate. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes and allow to completely cool.

 

FOR THE FILLING-

Blend first 5 ingredients of pie filling until creamy. Then whip 1 cup heavy whipping cream. Fold cream gently into mixture. Pour into prepared pie crust. Garnish with chopped peanut butter cups, shaved chocolate or chopped peanuts!

Note-

Chill for 4-6 hours before serving or place in freezer for 1 hour so that pie will become firm and slice easily.
