This is a great pie recipe my cousin always brings to the family reunions and it’s always a big hit! If you can’t find the bigger box of pudding the small one works fine. Same goes with the whipped cream, if you can’t find a tub of extra creamy just use regular.
Ingredients
  • 1 9″ pie shell, pre-baked
  • 1 box (6 serving size) vanilla cook & serve pudding
  • Milk (amount on the pudding box minus ½ a cup)
  • ½ cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1½ – 2 cups extra creamy whipped cream
Instructions
  1. Bake the pie shell according to the package directions. Let cool completely.
  2. Cook the pudding according to the package directions (and the note below), let cool completely.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter and confectioners sugar until it is completely mixed and resembles course crumbs. Reserve 3 tbsp of the mixture and press an even layer with the rest into the pie crust.
  4. Spoon the pudding onto the peanut butter mixture. Spread whipped cream on top of the pudding.
  5. Sprinkle the reserved peanut butter mixture on top and serve.
Notes
Typically the pudding recipe on the box will call for 3 cups, however, I always make it with just 2½ cups to make the pudding a little thicker. This will make sure the pie slice stands up on it’s own and doesn’t just droop and run.
