{No Bake} Peanut Butter Pie - Luscious!!

We are big time peanut butter lovers at our house!

SO excited to make this lovely dessert! It's definitely a 'company treat'. 

I saw this scrumptious recipe shared at my sweet buddy Tonya's 
4 little Fergusons  blog...she got the recipe from her BFF - Kasey.
(I really love both these women!) 

I put off making it for some time, simply because I didn't trust myself to not gobble up (or down!) the whole pie by myself...could I possibly make it and keep it hidden if need be??  ;-}

Let me tell you...It was awesome enough I added this luscious recipe to my last cookbook..."Love at First Bite".
(202 recipes...over 100 contain 6 ingredients or fewer)

Doesn't that look irresistible?  It really really is!!!!

Incredible, scrumptious and a whole long list of other adjectives too!!!

Would be a very special dessert to share for Easter!


I tried thinking of how to reduce calories and not seriously affect the end result. 

Besides using sugar free pudding, fat free half and half and lite Cool Whip, I cut back some on the amount of powdered sugar...it was still divine!

{NO BAKE} PEANUT BUTTER PIE 


Homemade Pie Crust or Graham Cracker Crust (chocolate would be great too) 


1 sm. box (4 serving size) (sugar free) instant vanilla pudding
1 pint (fat free) 1/2 & 1/2 (2 c.)
2/3 c. crunchy peanut butter
1-1/2 c. powdered sugar
(I used 1-1/4 cup and think it was plenty)
8 ozs. (lite) Cool Whip 


If using homemade crust, bake accordingly. Cool completely. 

In small bowl, combine peanut butter and powdered sugar with a fork until        crumbly. Set aside. 

In medium bowl, combine pudding mix with half and half; whisk for about 2 minutes. Stir in half the Cool Whip. 

Add about 2/3 of the peanut butter crumbles to the bottom of the crust, spreading evenly. Top with pudding and spread evenly. Add Cool Whip to the top and cover evenly. Top with the remaining pb crumbles.

Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
