This peanut butter pie is simple, decadent, and sugar-free! Okay, if you add some chocolate on top — and you really should — there’s a marginal bit of sugar. But for an occasional or special treat, this is a really satisfying way to get a very small amount of the sweet stuff. Sweet, and creamy, and rich — oh my!
Peanut Butter Pie Recipe
In a second bowl, beat cream cheese until soft and creamy. Add peanut butter, vanilla, and sweetener and continue beating for an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until fluffy and airy.
Drop three large spoonfuls of the PB mixture into the whipped cream; whip this till mostly incorporated.
Add the rest of the PB mixture in the same way…
whipping just until it’s all a consistent color.
Taste. Taste again. Okay, now stop. No, stop!
No, seriously: taste it, and if you won’t be topping it with sweetened whipped cream and/or sweet chocolate, add more sugar/sweetener if it’s not sweet enough for you. (Now that I’m adjusted to living without sugar, I’m more sensitized to the taste, so I tend to under-sweeten things.)
Dollop the pie filling into individual small bowls, ramekins or mason jars. Cover with clear wrap and refrigerate till ready to serve. (Optional method: put some chopped chocolate and/or chopped nuts in the bottom of the jars before filling.)
Chop the chocolate.
You may set out toppings and let your guests top as they like, or prep it all and serve.Taste. Swoon. Repeat.
