Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Pie
NUTTER BUTTER PEANUT BUTTER PIE
Outback Steakhouse Copycat Recipe
Smooth and creamy peanut butter pie topped with chocolate sauce, chocolate shavings and whipped cream.
24 Nutter Butter cookies, crushed into crumbs
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup hot fudge
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
3/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
8 ounces Cool Whip, defrosted
additional hot fudge for drizzling, optional
In a medium bowl, combine cookie crumbs and butter. Press the mixture into a pie plate. Drizzle the hot fudge on top and smooth it out. Place in the freezer while you're preparing the filling. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to mix cream cheese and powdered sugar. Mix in peanut butter and vanilla; beat until smooth. Beat in about 1 cup of the Cool Whip.
Set the beaters aside and use a rubber spatula to fold in the rest of the Cool Whip. Keep folding until the mixture is well combined. Spoon the peanut butter filling into the frozen pie crust, smooth the top, and place back into the freezer. Freeze for at least 3 hours, or until set enough to slice easily. Drizzle additional hot fudge on individual slices, if desired.
