The Pioneer Woman’s Peanut Butter Pie

There was a period of this blog that I refer to as: The Dark Days.

The first six months was a little…experimental, let’s say.

Another way to say it is that it looks like a toddler wearing a blindfold took the photographs and a person for whom English was her 12th language wrote the copy.

When I switched this blog over from blogger to wordpress, a lot of my posts got lost, which was mostly okay. There were, however, a few posts that really did deserve to get rewritten and dragged out of the vault.

This was one of them. No revisions, no alterations. A straight out demonstration of a fantastic recipe by one of the OG food bloggers. It’s easy, it’s very fast to make, and it’s incredibly tasty.

The Pioneer Woman’s Peanut Butter Pie


8 oz. cream cheese, softened

4 tbsp. butter, melted

1 tub whipped topping

1 cup peanut butter

1 1/4 cup  powdered sugar

25 Oreos (or 1 box of Oreo cookie crumbs)

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and grind the Oreos in a food processor until the crumb is very fine.

2. Combine the Oreos with the melted butter, then press the moistened crumbs into a pie dish. Pat the crumbs down to make a densely packed crust, then bake for 5 minutes, or until the crust is fragrant.

3. Combine the peanut butter, the powdered sugar, and the cream cheese, and the whipped topping and whip with egg beaters or stand mixer for about 5 minutes, or until very light and fluffy.

4. Now, load the filling into the pie crust, refrigerate for 15 – 20 minutes, or until solid, and…

5. Serve.

 This pie is outstanding. Its crunchy, darkly chocolate crust contrasts with the sweet and savory peanut butter filling, both airy and rich at the same time. It is perfect for a casual dinner party, an evening potluck, or as an offering to a lovesick friend.  It is familiar, it is delicious, it is INSANELY easy to make.

I mean, it was so good, I had to repost it. From, you know…the dark days.
