**Makes 1 (9inch) pie
We use a more stable peanut butter brand in this recipe, like JIF, as it holds up the best in this no bake peanut butter pie. If you want to use a more natural peanut butter, we just recommend using a "no stir" kind and beating the peanut butter alone first, until light and slightly fluffy, before adding the other filling ingredients.
Make Ahead: This pie can be made up to 3 days ahead of time. If not serving soon after chilling/allowing the filling to set, we recommend leaving the whipped cream topping and chopped peanuts off the pie. Then tightly wrapping the chilled pie in plastic wrap or a large airtight container. When ready to serve, remove the plastic wrap and allow the pie to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before adding the whipped cream and chopped peanuts to the top.
Freezing Whole Pie: This pie can be frozen for up to 3 months (for maximum freshness). We recommend freezing the whole pie without the whipped cream topping. Place pie in freezer until fully frozen, about 2 hours. Then tightly wrap in plastic wrap and place back into the freezer until ready to use. Once ready to serve, remove from freezer, unwrap and thaw, about 1 hour. Top with whipped cream and chopped peanuts and serve.
Freezing Partial Pie or Individual Slices with Whipped Cream:You can freeze, store and thaw the partial pie or individual slices that already have whipped cream on them the same way as the whole pie. We only recommend enjoying it within 1 month of freezing for maximum freshness.
