Peanut Butter Tart

Updated on June 10, 2014

Why A Peanut Butter Tart Dessert?

I come from a peanut butter family. Those of you that are in the same situation will know exactly what I mean. My family loves peanut butter whether tasting a spoonful, in sandwiches or any recipe with peanut butter.

Easy Does It Recipe

When I am looking for a dessert that is quick and easy to make, this Peanut Butter Tart comes to mind. I like that this is a homemade recipe that takes very little time and I can say I made it myself. Have some fun with this recipe by adding a few variations. Layer sliced bananas in between the crust and the filling or you can top with chocolate chips or chopped peanuts.

Serving Size

Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter, creamy or chunky
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 8 oz. non-dairy whipped topping
  • Topping:
  • Additional whipped topping or whipped cream
  • Chocolate shavings or mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl mix together graham cracker crumbs and sugar.
  2. Add butter, mixing well.
  3. Press crumbs into a 13 x 4 tart pan, 9 in. pie plate or 9 in. spring form pan.
  4. In a mixer bowl combine cream cheese, peanut butter and sugar.
  5. Mix until smooth.
  6. Fold in whipped topping.
  7. Spread into crust and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

      That looks absolutely amazing. We have to be very careful with peanut butter because some of our family members are allergic, but every now and then I make a p-butter dessert for just the two of us. Have you ever tried it with whipped cream instead of non-dairy topping? I'd like to give that a try. Thanks for sharing. Your photograph is arresting. So professional!
