Creamy Peanut Butter Pie w/ Chocolate Chip Cookie Crust

There was a half batch of chocolate chip cookie dough calling to me from the freezer on Sunday. I wanted to make something good for dessert; something that really constituted as Dessert with a capital D and not just cookies. So I started wondering if I could use the cookie dough as a pie crust. I figured it was worth a shot.p4264873

And that was definitely the right call. Man, did this pie turn out great! It’s a little rich and a lot delicious. It tastes better if it’s allowed to refrigerate at least 6 hours first though, so you might want to keep that in mind.

Creamy Peanut Butter Pie w/ Chocolate Chip Cookie Crust

  • 1/2 batch of your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough (about enough to make 2 – 2 1/2 dozen cookies)
  • 1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 c. peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 T. milk, plus more if needed
  • 1/2 c. chocolate chips, melted (optional)

1. Grease a pie plate and sprinkle bottom and sides with granulated sugar or flour. Press cookie dough into pie plate. Bake at 375 degress for 15 – 20 minutes, until browned and fully cooked. Immediately after removing from oven, gently press the center of the pie crust down with a spoon to help it flatten. These makes it more like a pie crust and less like bar cookies.

2. While pie crust is baking, beat together the cream cheese and peanut butter until creamy. Add powdered sugar and mix about 2 minutes. Stir in vanilla and milk. The consistency should be thinner than frosting but thicker than pudding.

3. Once pie crust is completely cooled, pour in filling. If desired, melt chocolate chips and pour or drizzle over pie. Or decorate any other way you’d like. Now that I think about it, I bet cut up peanut butter cups would be great on top!

  1. Oh. My. Gosh. Are you evil or something? Tempting me with that amazing looking dessert… Don’t you know it’s almost bathing suit season?

  2. Yummy!!

    Might have to give this a try!! I bet it would taste delicious in an crushed Oreo or graham cracker crust too and then it would be a totally no bake dessert. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

  3. Ohhhhhh…STOP!!! I get hungry every time I read your blog! I have several of your recipes in the “try” section of my binder. How will I ever keep up? I’m printing right now. πŸ™‚

  4. OK, I MUST HAVE THIS RIGHT NOW! Only, we can’t eat dairy (I eat chocolate though, to heck with the allergic reaction..it is worth it LOL). I can sub soy milk for the milk, but not sure what to sub for the cream cheese….

    I MUST MAKE THIS TOMORROW, I am in love…

    Many Blessings πŸ™‚

  5. Made this the other night for my friend who had never had peanut butter pie before; it’s great! Came out rich and creamy with just the right consistency of crust. Next time I’m going to drizzle the chocolate, though, because pouring it in the middle made it hard to slice. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I just baked this tonight for a college Pie Night event! It is SO DELICIOUS! This will definitely be something I make for my family when I go home for break. It will be in my recipe box for years to come, probably forever!!! Great job!

  7. There are some interesting deadlines on this article but I don’t know if I see all of them middle to heart. There is some validity however I’ll take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we wish extra! Added to FeedBurner as nicely

  8. Once Ibegan reading the initial paragraph, I thought this merely
    going to be another dull article. But , now that I’m done,
    I have so much more magnificent insights I wouldn’t have had before.
    Thank you!
