Peanut Butter and Jelly Pie

Picture of Peanut Butter and Jelly Pie
While eating a PB & J, have you ever wondered why this awesome sandwich hasn't been made into a pie?  I did!  So I created the PB & J pie and it is amazing how much it is like a pb & j sandwich!  (if you use strawberry jam instead of grape that is)

Step 1: What you are needing

So, I'm not great at making up recipes yet, but I love to put things together to make awesome dishes!  So here is where I got the pieces to this pie.  Everything seemed to be the right amount.  I had a little extra of the peanut butter mousse, but my hubby loves peanut butter so it's there for him to add on a little extra!

Crust - Bar crust from here:
  • 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c. cold unsalted butter
  • 1 egg


Filling - Peanut Butter Mousse from here:
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 8 oz. pkg. Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 c. Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 c. Powdered Sugar
  • 1 c. Heavy Cream
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract


Topping* - Strawberry sauce from here:
  • 16 oz Strawberries
  • 1/4 c. Sugar

*You can probably just use strawberry preserves if you want to keep it simple, but really, this topping is tasty and not hard to make!
Also, this might be a little much so you can make a smaller batch of the topping if you would like.

Come summer, this is definitely going on my 'to bake' list. In the photos it looks like a fantastic summer pie. I do really like Heygalicious' idea of integrating the idea into a cheesecake... Proper after BBQ desert food! And Doodlecraft's drizzled fudge idea as well.

I can barely wait to start experimenting with it all.
Nomnomnom! It's got two of my most flavourite things, cheesecake and PB and J sandwiches! Now I just need a Philly Cheese-steak cheesecake!

Thank you :)
Oh wow, that looks so good! Although, I'd probably whip up some thick fudge and drizzle that on the top too...I love chocolate and peanut butter! :)
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  doodlecraft1 year ago
That would definitely be tasty :) I left chocolate off since my husband isn't too fond of it (crazy I know).
Wow...Just like my husband, he'll pass up chocolate any day of the week. :) Oh well, more for me!

I love peanut butter! I need to try this, but I might adapt it into flutternutter pie. The peanut butter mousse looks fabulous!
Awesome! I'm all for adapting recipes/projects to work for you :)

Is it good?
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  nerd74731 year ago
Yes! If you like PB & J sandwiches cause it very much resembles them. My hubby just likes it without the strawberry topping so if you mostly like just PB, that works too :)

YUM!
It is very tasty! I was selfish and kept it at home for me and my hubby. There wasn't much left anyway, sure gets eaten fast :)
