This Easy Peanut Butter Pie Recipe would be a great pie for your Easter dinner dessert (or any other day). Peanut Butter has got to be one of my favorite food items. I think I eat about 4 Peanut Butter sandwiches per week ha ha (I am not kidding you here). Since I can remember I have always been addicted. You may be able to pick up on my addictions since I have shared Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies and the Peanut Butter Cheese-ball. I have probably told you about my love for peanut butter many times.

Peanut Butter Pie is yummy. There is nothing better than chilled peanut butter pie with a cup of coffee for dessert. Last week we were needing a dessert for some company that was dropping in. I had planned to just purchase a store bought pie because I was in a pinch for timing. After hitting the grocery and seeing the recent pricing on pies I decided to come home and just whip up this yummy Peanut Butter Pie at home. I saved and it tasted much better than a store bought would have.

Now that spring is here I know we will be enjoying more cold pies. This Peanut Butter Pie Recipe will become a frequently made pie. Winter is for warm comforting pies. Cold pies are great for spring and summer weather. I know this Homemade Peanut Butter Pie would be great for an Easter Dessert. I am thinking we may have to make some for the holiday.
Do you have a favorite spring and summer pie? I plan to make a few different types for us to enjoy this summer. I know strawberry pie is another favorite pie during the summer for my family. This Peanut Butter pie was a hit with my hubby and kiddos though. I see it having to be made quite often.
