My initial impression of this No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie was that it's a perfect pie for summer. While I still believe that to be true, let's be honest. This pie is so amazingly delicious (and easy!) it should not be limited to any single season or occasion. This pie is the perfect any time pie!
We all know, some of the best desserts are quick and easy. This No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie is no exception. It can be whipped together in a matter of minutes, and then just popped in the freezer until time to serve. The texture is smooth and creamy, almost like an ice cream pie. The peanut butter flavor is nicely balanced with the COOL WHIP whipped topping and cream cheese. I halved the amount sugar from the original recipe, and the result was just the right amount of sweetness.
The recipe makes two pies, one for now, one to share, or to simply make ahead for later. It's great for a holiday, potluck or really any day. The ingredients will soon become pantry staples in my house (thanks to Mike!), so we can enjoy this any time pie...any time!

additional COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, for topping
chocolate syrup, for topping
peanut butter cup candies, chopped, for topping
- Put cream cheese, peanut butter and powdered sugar in a large bowl. Beat on medium for about 3 minutes, or until combined and fluffy. Gradually add milk, beating until well-blended.
- Fold in COOL WHIP until combined.
- Divided mixture evenly between 2 pie crusts.
- Freeze pies until set (at least 2 hours hour to overnight).
