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

I originally shared this pie on Crazy for Crust’s 6th birthday. Now we’ve passed 10 years and this is STILL a favorite recipe!

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 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.

Say that 3 times fast!

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

The Perfect Crust

I used my favorite peanut butter cookie crust for this recipe to make it ALL peanut butter. That’s an easy no-bake crust and I love making it instead of buying from the store, because it tastes so much better.

Feel free to use an Oreo or Graham Cracker crust instead any of the three would be fabulous. You can buy one too, if that’s easier.

But if you’re a peanut butter lover like we are, well, there’s no contest.

6 Ingredient Pie Filling

For the filling of the pie you just need 6 things:

  • Cream Cheese – make sure it’s softened to avoid lumps
  • Peanut Butter – use any kind, creamy or chunky
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Whipped Topping – you can use regular or light or fat free
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups – lots of them!

I chop up the peanut butter cups and put them in the pie and it makes this one of the best peanut butter pie recipes!

Topping & Storing

You can leave the top plain, or you can use more whipped topping, but I love spreading hot fudge all over the pie and sprinkling it with more peanut butter cups – you can never have too many.

Store the pie in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can also freeze it for up to a month. This makes the best ever peanut butter pie recipe – with peanut butter cups!
