3 Easy No Bake Layers
There are several parts to this recipe, but it’s an easy to make and it’s perfect for entertaining because you can make it ahead of time. Basically, there are three parts:
- No-bake cookie crust
- Peanut butter layer
- Nutella layer
Can I just tell you how amazing this pie is? I mean, just listing out the parts has me craving it all over again. It’s so good.
But I digress. Let’s talk about how to make it! First up, the crust.
Nutter Butter Cookie Crust
I am all about the Nutter Butters – they make a perfect no-bake crust for pie! Nutter Butters are peanut butter cookie sandwiches, and if you can’t find them you can use any sandwich cookie (they make generic versions at most grocery stores).
The best news is that you don’t have to turn on the oven for this easy pie crust. You will want to make it first because it needs time to chill – by the time you finish the filling it will be ready.
Use your food processor to finely crush the cookies and mix them with melted butter. Then just press the mixture into a 9” pie pan. Pop it in the fridge and that’s it. You have to love a super simple pie crust!
Prepare the Whipped Cream
The pie has two layers and each one will need some whipped cream folded in. Homemade whipped cream is so easy to make! For this recipe, all you need is heavy whipping cream and brown sugar. Just whisk the two together until stiff peaks form.
Place the bowl in the fridge while you make the rest of the recipe. That way, it’s nice and cold when you add it to the pie.
How to Make the Layers
- For the Nutella layer, beat softened cream cheese with Nutella and brown sugar until it’s creamy. Fold in 1/3 of the whipped cream and then spread the mixture over the peanut butter cookie crust.
- For the peanut butter layer, follow the same process and beat the peanut butter with cream cheese and brown sugar until smooth and creamy. Fold in the rest of the whipped cream and spread the mixture over the top of the Nutella layer.
At this point, feel free to garnish the pie with crushed Nutter Butters for a little decoration and crunchiness.
FAQ and Tips
Yes you definitely can. See the recipe for amounts.
You can make this pie in advance and the leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for a few days. Personally, I love this peanut pie frozen – it’s the ultimate cold and creamy treat. Just wrap it tightly before you freeze it.
Make this no-bake pie for all the peanut butter and Nutella fans in your life – it’s always a hit when I make it for mine. Enjoy!
