Servings: 9 inch pie


  • 1 ½ cups chocolate cookie crumbs
  • 5-7 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8 oz package cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • ¼ cup chopped peanuts for garnish
  • prepared chocolate sauce for garnish, optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
  • Melt butter, and then add cookie crumbs. Mix together. Crumbs should be moist but not glossy with butter,(if they are glossy, add more crumbs). Press mixture into 9 inch pie plate, smoothing up the side. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool.
  • Whip the cream until it starts to thicken, and then add the vanilla and brown sugar. Whip until well combined. Chill until needed.
  • Beat cream cheese until very smooth, a couple of minutes in a stand mixer (if you don`t get it smooth enough, it will not mix well with the peanut butter and you will have a lumpy pie). Add peanut butter and mix well.
  • Add a third of the chilled whipped cream mix to the peanut butter and cream cheese mixture. Mix until the peanut butter mixture is loosened up a bit.
  • Gently fold in the second third of whipped cream and then the final amount.
  • Pour into prepared and cooled pie crust and then refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight.
  • To serve, sprinkle with the chopped peanuts and drizzle each slice with chocolate sauce if desired.
