Creamy Peanut Butter Pie recipe. A recipe for Creamy Peanut Butter Pies. Individual Creamy Peanut Butter Pies. I have this problem, where whenever I hear the words peanut butter, I think of this song I used to sing as a kid. It makes me so mad, because usually I end up singing this song in my head for awhile. I can never get it out!!!! While searching the internet for this lovely song, I cam across this super annoying video. This is probably the most obnoxious video I have seen in a long time so I recommend watching like 5 seconds of it, or just not at all. HERE you go. Ok, but the REAL video, the video of the song I think about is HERE. I picked this one because it is sufficiently awkward, and the way the man carrying the camera says jelly is funny. Truth, its still an annoying video and I won’t hate you if you don’t watch it. So, Creamy Peanut Butter Pies, that is what we have today. Super easy, and really freaking good, especially if you like peanut butter. The peanut butter is crazy creamy, and light and fluffy. I hope you all have a great weekend, and eat lots of good food.

    If these aren’t the most amazing little bites of goodness, then I don’t know what is.

    I can’t wait to make these. They look delicious. I knew there was a good reason that I bought peanut butter at the store today.

    I was so inspired by this recipe, I made something similar for a bridal shower I hosted yesterday and they were divine!!! I also made a set of my Blueberry Babes (mini-cheese cake tarts).

    Thanks for the inspiration – lovin you blog! x Heike

  18. Sally @ Spontaneous Hausfrau Not Specified Not Specified

    With mascarpone in the filling, how could this be anything but delicious. It’s scary how good peanut butter is with other fatty dairy stuff.

    These are so cute! I love the idea of splitting one big pie into a bunch of smaller individual servings – extra delicious crispy crust… Very creative and beautiful and I am featuring this post in today’s Friday Food Fetish roundup (with a link-back and attribution), so please let me know if you have any objections. It’s a pleasure following your food…

    They look so beautiful. I cannot take my eyes off them

    Teri – quick question: did you use conventional peanut butter like Jif or Peter Pan? I want to try to approximate your end result; I ask because I prefer to use homemade peanut butter which is noticeably different in texture, density and flavour.

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi KJ, I actually wrote the recipe and yes, i used store bought (my preference is JIF). I love homemade/natural peanut butter too, but you get a much better consistency and overall end result with the store bought stuff. Good luck! (also, the cocoa powder is actually an optional ingredient that I’ll only use if I want the extra richness)
