How To Make An Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Pie

Most people today make peanut butter pies the fast way with out cooking anything but back in the day peanut butter pies were made much different and they were oh so delicious. If you ever make a peanut butter pie the old fashioned way you'll never go back to making them the modern way. Because the flavor of the old fashioned peanut butter pies were just simply marvelous.

My Grandmother Hattie Propst made these pies over fifty years ago and I remember setting and watching her make them. And then many years later when I became a Chef I started making Peanut Butter Pies the old fashioned way that my Grandmother had made them. And before long I had people all over Miami Florida making them this way. And believe it or not but they really aren't that hard to make the old fashioned way.

I think that Jiff makes the best peanut butter there is and I use it anytime I'm making anything with peanut butter. When I'm baking anything I always buy the best ingredients possible to use in making my recipes. For instance buy real graham crackers and puree them for the two cups of graham cracker crumbs you need. Use a food processor with a metal blade in it to make your graham cracker crumbs.

Ingredients Needed For Your Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Pie

For The Homemade Graham Cracker Pie Shell


1. Two Cups Of Fine Graham Cracker Crumbs.

2. One Fourth Cup Brown Sugar.

How To Make Your Graham Cracker Pie Crust

In a bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs, the brown sugar, and the butter and mix it together very well. Spray a nine inch glass pie pan with vegetable cooking spray and then using your hands press the graham cracker mixture out into the pie pan to make a graham cracker pie crust. You'll want to bake the graham cracker crust for 10 minutes at 350 degrees and then set it out and let it cool. You could make the pie with an already made graham cracker crust but you'll never get the flavor you will with a homemade one.

Bake the pie at 350 degrees for 15 minutes and then set it out side the oven and allow it to cool for 30 minutes before you slice the pie and serve it. Serve each slice of the pie with a big spoon of whipped topping.

      I have not only never had peanut butter pie; I've never even heard of such a thing. This sounds delicious, and a must-try.

      Your instructions were very well put and clear; it sounds pretty easy, even for this non-pie-baker.

      I'm one of the guilty ones who have only made the refrigerator type peanut butter pies, but mainly because my oldest son just loves them, lol.

      I want to try this recipe on him, though. It sounds wonderful, and I'll just bet he--and the rest of us--will really like it!

      Thanks for sharing it. :)
