Peanut Butter Pies

I absolutely love peanut butter and peanut butter pie is one of my favorites. But I'm a Registered Dietitian, so I knew just how high my original recipe was in fat and calories. I cut down on several critical things, and the resulting pie is great! —Lisa Varner, Charleston, South Carolina

    Delicious! I cut the recipe roughly in half since I only wanted one pie. In doing so, I used about 8T of peanut butter, I started with 6T then added enough till I liked the taste. I also used about 2/3 of the can of sweetened condensed milk. I used a 8oz container of cool whip and added a little more than 1/2t of vanilla. I omitted the chopped peanuts on top.

    We enjoy this pie, although being allergic to wheat, I put it in a chocolate rice krispie crust that does add a flavor and texture punch! Last night I was feeling adventurous, so I played with multiple recipes. I used my rice krispie crust, added a cup of coarsely chopped peanut butter cups to this recipe and used it as the base layer, then topped it with a layer of fluffy chocolate pie from a family recipe (stirring another cup of the chopped candy into that). I topped the whole thing off with crushed peanuts and crushed butterfingers bars and froze it. The family says that's a keeper!

    The recipe was easy enough to follow, but I've never been much of a fan of freezer pies. For a relatively quick PB pie fix, this recipe does the trick. Personally, the PB flavor just wasn't strong enough, even after adding extra peanut butter.

    I haven't made this recipe, but it seems to be similar to other unbaked cheesecake recipes. Do you have to put it in the freezer, or would it set up in the fridge as well?
