If you love awesome southern desserts, you’ll want to dive into peanut butter pie. It’s easy, it’s creamy, and it’s awesome on a hot Arizona summer day. The frozen pie cools your entire body while satisfying your sweet tooth. Peanut butter, whipped cream, and chocolate icing mix together in a wonderful treat whether you’re going to a bake sale or a family gathering. I love fluffy pies, especially chocolate or peanut butter pies and this pie is perfectly peaked with fluffiness. It’s like eating an airy Reese’s peanut butter cup. Who doesn’t want to enjoy that when the sun is beating down and you’re sweating to death?

Even if you’re not that familiar with pie making, this pie will be simple. It’s not nearly as complicated at a traditional fruit pie where you have to mix the filling and create the dough. This recipe uses a great pre-made graham cracker crust that adds crunch and buttery deliciousness. The filling also only needs to be mixed slightly with a mixer and combined. And it includes homemade whipped cream! As long as you don’t whip the cream into a curdle, this recipe should be sweet and a perfect marriage of peanut butter and chocolate. It also takes essentially no time to make. The freezer does all the work of helping the pie reach its peak of taste. If after this pie, you’re feeling particularly savvy about your baking abilities,  you may want to try making the Maple Pecan Pie for another dazzler in your mouth.

I am in deep-fried love with food and travel. With Italian roots, I have a weakness for bread, marinara, and mozzarella. I’ll try anything once and am constantly searching for intriguing places to visit. When I'm not savoring the last bite or organizing my next trip, I'm indulging my inner bookworm and writing about my adventures. If you turn on college football and give me a local craft beer, you’ll see the happiest Hokie on the West coast.
