To begin making Peanut Butter Cup Pie I got out my 9″ gluten free graham pie crust.  This brand is readily available locally but you could also choose to prepare your pie crust from scratch.

The graham pie crust.

Next I opened up some Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and lined the bottom of my pie shell.  I had to break one of the cups to fit it in.

After lining the graham pie shell with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups I prepared my Chocolate Pudding.  

You can also use any box of cooked pudding and pie filling mix if you do not choose to make the pudding from scratch.

Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding is a creamy, chocolatey, dessert recipe that really hits the spot for those that have to avoid dairy.

Once the chocolate pudding had cooled for about 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, I poured it over the candy in the pie shell.

I spread it out evenly and it allowed to set.  You can refrigerate it as well and do the next step as soon as it has cooled.

For the topping I put some dairy free cream cheese, icing sugar and peanut butter into a medium sized mixing bowl.

Then I used an electric hand mixer to beat the ingredients together until well blended.

I dumped in some Cool Whip.

Then I used the electric hand mixer again to beat until the topping was light and fluffy.

I scraped the topping onto the top of the chocolate pie and spread it out evenly.

Next I cut some Reese’s Peanut Butter cups in half and spaced them evenly around the outer edge of the pie.

I chopped up a Peanut Butter Cup and sprinkled it over the top of the pie as a final garnish.

Chill this decadent pie for about an hour before serving so that it will hold its shape.

Peanut Butter Cup Pie is a light but rich dessert that provides the perfect combintion of chocolate and peanut butter.

Enjoy every luscious bite of this creamy pie!
