Easy Peanut Butter Pie

Updated on May 23, 2011

Quick and Easy Peanut Butter Pie

Hi, everyone. My name is Ruth Ann Goode and I was born and raised in rural Kentucky. It has often been said that Kentucky is well known for its good ole country cookin** I am from a small town called Willisburg. Population is about 300 people. I am now a Clevelander in Ohio since 1978.

My mother died in 1996 at 88 years of age and she collected her own recipes and wanted me to keep and cherish them after she was gone.

I was going through my closet the other day and happened to find the bag of her recipes. I have decided to publish the unique ones that she either developed or were passed down from other family members.

I am starting out by sharing her special peanut butter pie that is very quick and easy to make and the whole family will enjoy.

My mother was  Mabel Goode but she was referred to in the Goode family as **Mamaw***

She was known as being one of the best cooks in the whole area of Washington County, Kentucky. She would often bake her unique desserts and take them to fairs, auctions, churches, picnics, other family members, friends, and grieving families. She was quite social, personable, and caring. She always kept Peanut butter around the house and was constantly trying out different recipes with this family staple.

One of her special recipes was her Peanut Butter Pie

You will need the following ingredients:

3/4 cup of smooth peanut butter

8 ounces of cream cheese

8 ounces of cool whip

1/2 cup of confectioners sugar

Take the cream cheese and stir until it is creamy, add the sugar and the cool whip, then add the peanut butter. Put in a graham cracker crust and chill overnight in the refrigerator.

Yum, Yum!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ruth Ann, daughter of Mabel Goode

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing your mom's good KY cooking. My grandmother, who was from WV, made a similar pie. It was luscious, too.
