Irva's Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut Butter Pie (Photo by Irva Maddox).

Facebook is great for connecting with friends and family and for getting new recipes.  Recently my college friend and current FB friend, Irva, posted a photo of her peanut butter pie and upon request she posted the recipe.  Irva and I were at Gardner-Webb and Appalachian together in the late 50s and have recently reconnected via Facebook.  So here's Irva's pie recipe. 

Mix a cup of confectioners sugar and 1/2 C lite peanut butter to meal consistency and pour into lite pie shell. Save a little of this mixture for topping.

Mix FF/SF vanilla pudding with low fat milk as directed on box and pour into pie shell. Place in fridge until firm.
When firm, top with small amount of lite Cool Whip. Sprinkle top with crumbs saved.*

*I forgot to save some of the crumbs for sprinkling on top, so I finely grated dark chocolate on top as garnish.  By not reserving some of the crumbs for the top, the layer of crumbs in the bottom of the pie was a little too thick and that made it difficult to cut a nice clean slice.  Next time, I will remember to reserve some of the crumbs for garnish.

According to my calculations, there are 1900 calories in the whole pie, so calories in one serving  ( 1/8 of pie) will be 240 calories.  So this is a fairly low calorie recipe for a  peanut butter pie.

Thanks, Irva, for sharing this recipe.  


  1. I think this is a good low-calorie recipe. Can't wait to try it.

  2. Nice low-fat recipe, easy to make.
