Peanut Butter Pie

I have a great love for anything peanut butter and with Thanksgiving close at hand I thought I would share this wonderful recipe for peanut butter pie. It is one of the most requested desserts from my family this time of the year. I found it online after searching and trying different recipes, this was my favorite by far!

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream (must be at least 30%)
1/4 cup sugar
8 ounces cream cheese
1 cup crunchy peanut butter (I prefer creamy)
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 graham cracker crust, store-bought or premade 
**On our field we do not have pre-made pie crusts but, I found some crispy "morning energy cookies" made with honey and nuts that I use in place of graham crackers to make a crust. I just crush them up, follow a simple graham cracker crust recipe and it works great!


Whip cream with 1/4 cup sugar. Mix all other ingredients until smooth and fold in whipped cream until well blended. Pour mixture into a graham cracker crust and chill for several hours before serving.
