Peanut Butter Pie

Comment on this recipe

My husband loves peanut butter, so needless to say, this is a favorite in our home. I like to serve it in our home when we have guests, especially during the holidays. If you are a peanut butter fan, you'll love this pie!

Ingredients

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 carton (4 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
9-inch chocolate crumb pie crust
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
3 tablespoons water

Instructions

Beat cream cheese, peanut butter and powdered sugar together until throughly mixed. Stir in softened whipped topping until well blended. Pour into chocolate crumb pie crust, smooth the top and chill. In a small heavy saucepan, slowly melt the semi-sweet chocolate and 3 tablespoons water. Stir the mixture until glossy. Spread evenly over the chilled pie and refrigerate until firm.
