Ever since I first made Peanut Butter Pudding, I’ve wanted to make it into a pie. As is often the case, that idea kept getting pushed down the to-do list in favor of other things. Recently, the idea jumped back to the front of my brain, and I just had to make it as soon as possible.
Pudding pies are exactly what they say they are. Pudding in a pie! Sure, you can serve pudding in the traditional ways, but there’s something even more special about turning it into a pie. This is sweet comfort food at its best!
A simple cookie crust is a perfect companion to all that cool, creamy pudding. Being a big fan of the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, I couldn’t resist making a chocolate cookie crust. You can, of course, use a different type of cookie to make the crust. Graham crackers (plain or chocolate), shortbread, or most any crispy cookie will work. Hey, if you want an all-out peanut butter experience, why not try a peanut butter cookie crust?
You only need a little simple sweetened whipped cream to top off this pie. I prefer the homemade version, but store-bought would simplify this pie even further.
With my well-established love of chocolate and peanut butter, I just had to add a few chopped peanut butter cups on top. That’s completely optional, but it’s such a great fit for this pie. Chocolate chips or chopped peanuts would also be great toppings.
However you serve it, I think you’ll enjoy this lovely Peanut Butter Pudding Pie. It’s such a great way to take homemade pudding and take it just a few steps further. Don’t be surprised if this becomes your new favorite way to enjoy pudding!
