It’s a Thanksgiving staple for my partner’s family and I look forward to it every year! Creamy peanut butter pudding, whipped cream and crunchy graham crackers crust come together to create a scrumptious no-bake pie. We hope you enjoy this perfectly peanut-buttery recipe.
1 package of vanilla pudding mix
2 cups of milk (whole or 2% work best)
½ cup unsalted peanut butter
2 packages of graham crackers
12 T butter
½ cup honey
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 T powdered sugar
½ cup powdered sugar
3 T peanut butter
First, prepare your pie crust.
Crush your graham crackers until there are no large chunks. You can do this using a food processor, or by hand using a sealable bag and smacking them with a heavy spoon.
Pour your crushed graham crackers in a large bowl and add your honey.
Melt your butter and pour it into the bowl, mixing well until the ingredients are combined.
Transfer your pie crust into an 8- or 9-inch pie pan, or a springform pan of a similar size. Press the dough into the sides and center of the pan at an even thickness.
Put the pie crust in the refrigerator to set.
While your crust is setting, you can prepare the pie filling.
In a medium sized pot, add your milk, pudding mix and egg. Set it on medium heat and stir constantly. When the pudding has begun to bubble and thicken, take it off the heat and continue to stir.
Transfer your pudding into the pie crust and smooth out the surface to create an even layer.
Next, you can prepare your toppings.
In a large mixing bowl, add your heavy cream and 1 T of powdered sugar. Whip your cream with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside in the refrigerator.
In a small mixing bowl, add your peanut butter and ½ cup powdered sugar. Mix well with a fork until small clumps begin to form and the powdered sugar is fully incorporated.
With your toppings done, you can assemble your pie. Dollop your whipped cream on top of your pie and smooth it into an even layer, then sprinkle your peanut butter crumbles all over the top.
Put your pie in the refrigerator to set and chill completely for 1-2 hours before serving. Enjoy!
