WHAT YOU WILL NEED

  • 125 grams of cream cheese at room temperature 

  • 225 grams of Cool Whip  

  • 125 grams of peanut butter 

  • One Graham Cracker Crust.  You can always buy the pre-made pie crusts or make your own with the simple recipe below. 

 

SIMPLE DIRECTIONS TO YOUR OWN PEANUT BUTTER PIE 

 

  1. Mix together the sweetener, peanut butter and cream cheese in a bowl. If you use a mixer, use a slow speed and mix until smooth. 

  1. Fold in the Cool Whip, and do not overmix. 

  1. Pour into crusts and chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes. 

 

It is that simple, and you will be able to enjoy your treat in a short time.
