No-bake your way to deliciousness with this No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie!
Woah. It’s almost July. Why, hello there, July! I must admit that July is one of my favorite months. Not only is it the peak month for summer shenanigans, but it’s also my birthday month. (On a related note, July seems to come around faster and faster each year…) This summer has been excellent so far as we tromp around with little Robbie. It’s fun to see him experience new things for the first time.
Take grass for instance. To me, grass is nice but it’s just there. It’s something I have to mow every week or two. But for Robbie, grass meant a confused look and then a laugh as it touched his bare feet. It meant almost an hour of entertainment…seriously. It meant trying to put it in his mouth.
But let’s roll the clock back to last summer for a moment. Laura and I were down in Nashville visiting my mom and sister, and they were throwing me an early birthday party. All birthday parties require cake. Seriously. That’s a rule that should never be broken. Birthdays require cake. Candles are optional. Cake is not.
My mother and sister clearly understood this rule though. They were kind enough to have a delicious cake for my birthday. But it didn’t stop there. Over the course of our 5-day visit, we had cake one night. And then there was a no-bake pie that showed up another night. And I’m pretty sure an apple pie made an appearance in there somewhere, too. I get it, though. Company in town is a good excuse to treat yourself to a dessert or three!
As we were enjoying that no-bake pie while sitting on my mom’s back porch, she described how incredibly easy it was to make. It basically involved a pie shell, some whipped topping and a couple of candy bars. It was almost silly how easy it was to make. And it was almost silly how fast that no-bake pie disappeared, too.
This No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie is a twist on that recipe that my mom made last summer. It’s also silly easy to make. Although, to be fair, I’m not sure I can really use the title ‘no-bake’ as I do bake the crust for a few minutes first. But you could always just use a store-bought crust…then it would definitely be no-bake. Either way, we’re going with it. The pie itself doesn’t get baked, so I’m calling this one a No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie. It screams summer deliciousness…and it screams incredibly easy to make! Enjoy!
P.S. If chocolate + peanut butter is your thing, check out this Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake. It’s not ‘no-bake’, but it’s well worth the baking effort!
