Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

Today we’re sharing a recipe for frozen peanut butter pie.  This peanut butter pie is a family favorite and is the perfect pie on these warm summer evenings.  

Why we love frozen peanut butter pie

This pie comes together so quickly and easily.  You can make a homemade graham cracker crust but if you’re short on a time, a store bought one works great too.  Just let your cream cheese soften and your cool whip to thaw and you’re ready to make peanut butter pie.    

If you refrigerate this pie after you make it, then it is a fluffier pie like many other pudding or cool whip pies.  We prefer to store the pie in the freezer and to take it out to cut pieces for serving as needed.  When you store it in the freezer it almost has the texture of ice cream.  So, then you feel like you’re eating a peanut butter ice cream pie.  It is hands down delicious and so refreshing.
