Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie - this AMAZING pie recipe has a NUTTER BUTTER Pie Crust!

This pie is special. It’s spectacular, yes, but it’s also special. Why? Because it’s Crazy for Crust’s 6th Birthday Pie!!

That’s right, today is this blog’s 6th birthday. 6 years ago I sat down and wrote my first post. It was a crust, and the photos and writing were horrible. Oh how far I’ve come.

Seriously though, the last six years have been pretty amazing. I went from not knowing what a blog was to having one that’s pretty successful. I went from never being able to bake without a recipe to creating my own recipes on a daily basis. And, most importantly, I went from an unhappy, stuck-in-a-rut, frustrated stay-at-home mom with nothing that was hers to a business owner.

That’s pretty darn special, if you ask me. To celebrate, the occasion needed a special recipe. This pie fits that requirement: it’s a No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie that’s no-bake peanut butter cheesecake filled with peanut butter cups all encased in a peanut butter cookie crust and topped with hot fudge and more peanut butter cups.


No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Back when I asked Mel to name his favorite pie of all time, this is what he told me. Remember last week, I said the requirement was a peanut butter cookie crust. Well, he also requested that it be peanut butter and filled with peanut butter cups. I did what he asked, and guess what? As a birthday present to Crazy for Crust, he ate TWO bites, allowing me to give this pie the Mel ate it tag.

This pie is really the epitome of this blog: it’s easy, it’s got a crust, and it’s damn good.

Feel free to use an Oreo or Graham Cracker crust instead of the peanut butter cookie crust – any of the three would be fabulous. But if you’re a peanut butter lover like we are, well, there’s no contest.

Okay, and now it’s time to get all mushy about the fact I’ve been doing this for 6 years.

I just have to say that I could not have gotten where I am today without all of you, my faithful audience. Thank you for your support, for clicking through, for getting emails, for sharing. Thank you for making my recipes and telling me how much you love them.

Of course, I really would not be where I am in this universe without my tribe; those bloggers who I love that I know so well. The ones that listen to me whine and pick me up when I’m down; the ones that lift me up when I don’t even know I need it. You all know who you are and I thank each and every one of you. **Hugs**

So, before we go…let’s all raise our forks…Happy Birthday Crazy for Crust! 🙂

  25. Happy Anniversary! What better way to celebrate than with peanut butter and chocolate! Yummy! ❤️

  26. HOw do you freeze it ? With foil on top the pan?

  27. If I make this pie tonight and put it in the fridge will it still be good for thanksgiving day? Or do you suggest freezing it

  28. So I made this today.

    As a dude who has never made a pie before, it was pretty easy. The hardest part was, as stated, unwrapping all the Reeses cups.

    Going to try it on Friday but it looks amazing.

    I used the Graham cracker crust linked in the recipe, baked.

  29. This recipe was the bomb! Everyone loved it!

  30. I had a problem with your recipe 🙁 I tried to do the three cups of fresh whipping cream and it made too much filling. I’m not sure how you were calculating the three cups, was that the before measurement or the after measurement? I used 3 cups of whipping cream and whipped it. I probably have enough filling for a second cake.
