That’s exactly what this pie is, brownies baked inside of a pie crust topped with peanut butter pie filling. I added more whipped cream to the top because I figured, hey, if I’m going to go this far I may as well go all the way.
I knew when I saw this recipe that I would be making it. I knew you would love it, I knew my family would love it, I knew that I had to make it in time for Thanksgiving so if anyone needed to take a dessert somewhere they would have time to gather the ingredients. I think that if you have ever been labeled “The One That Doesn’t Bake” you should make this pie and impress the socks off of your guests/hosts.
I made some modifications to the recipe I found here. I used my favorite pie crust, Suzanne’s Foolproof Pie Crust and My Favorite Brownies. You can also use store bought pie crust and boxed brownies and this will be just as fabulous. Use what you are comfortable with!
Get your pie crust into the pan.
Make your brownies and pour them into your shell. If you are using my recipe, only put half in there. I did all of them and it was too much. If you are using a mix, get one that is for a 9×9 pan. Place it into a 350 degree oven for about 20 – 25 minutes, or until it is set.
It’ll look like this if you use the whole recipe. This is 9″ deep dish pie plate, so it wasn’t quite full. Almost, but not quite. At this point you are going to stash it in the fridge until it is completely cool.
When it is cool, mix 1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter and 1 cup powdered sugar together. Mix in 1 (8 oz) tub of whipped topping that has been thawed and spread it on top of the brownies. I chose to add half of another carton of whipped topping to mine, just to make it truly spectacular!
And there it is! I told you it was easy.
This would be a great addition to Thanksgiving or Christmas – or any get together for that matter!

It’s still breakfast time and I WANT THIS PIE! Do I have to wait until later in the day? Thanks for posting – I’m making this today!

I love this recipe! I make something similar without the pie crust in a 9X13 pan and it is always a big hit.
12 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup peanut butter (both kinds work well)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
16 oz Cool Whip (its quicker to get two 8 oz containers)
Mix cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla. Fold in three cups Cool Whip (3 cups = 8 oz). Spread over cooled brownies. Spread remaining Cool Whip on top of peanut butter mixture. Top with chocolate curls, chocolate chips, peanuts, or whatever you wish.
You can also put the topping mixture into two Oreo Pie crusts (with or without a brownie bottom, I suppose) and freeze. The mixture never freezes completely solid.

Please issue a drool warning when you have a recipe this tasty. I think I ruined my keyboard with all the slobber!!
Would it be considered bad manners if I made this and ate the entire thing myself? I guess only if they find out right?
Thanks for the recipe and I look forward to many more. Just remember, drool warning!!

🙂 I made a mental note of the drool warning 🙂 I hope that you all love it as much as we do! It really is as good as it looks!
