1 prepared graham cracker crust (or make your own)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 (8 ounce) carton whipped topping (like Cool Whip)
Optional garnishes - Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
or salted peanuts, chopped
Combine 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a mixing bowl.
Cream the ingredients together with an electric mixer.
Remove the creamed mixture from the mixer and gently fold in an 8 ounce carton of Cool Whip.
When the Cool Whip is well blended, spoon filling into prepared graham cracker crust.
Spread filling to edge of crust. Now, this is where you can say, this looks great, it's finished, or you can add garnishes. You might want to add some chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups or chopped salted peanuts, whatever sounds good to your family. I chopped peanut butter cups for mine.
This candy chops much easier if it is really cold, so it's a good idea to put it in the freezer when you start mixing up the pie filling.
Chill until ready to serve. This pie is great to make ahead. Chilling overnight would be fine if you can wait that long to cut into it.
