Ever hear that expression “Easy as pie?” It must be a reference to Peanut Butter Pie. (It can’t be a reference to apple pie – that’s a lot of work!) You don’t need any baking skills in order to make this pie. A good sturdy mixer is the only tool you’ll need.
- You start with a premade graham cracker pie crust.
- Next, combine 1/2 cup of peanut butter with 1 cup of milk in a mixer and blend well.
- Add 1 small box of instant vanilla pudding and mix for 2-3 minutes.
- Add a small carton of Cool Whip and mix until well blended.
- Pour into prepared pie crust and freeze for at least 2 hours.
- Remove from freezer 30 minutes before serving.
- Garnish with more whipped topping, if desired.
Note: If you would like to decorate the top with Reddi-wip, only do so prior to serving. If left too long it “melts.”
