Better Than Gibson's Peanut Butter Pie

Better Than Gibson's Peanut Butter Pie

1 Pre-baked Pie Crust. 

You can use a homemade crust or one of those pre-made ones you roll out and bake, but don't use one of the pre-formed ones. Bake according to package or recipe directions and allow to cool while you work on the filling.

Creamy Peanut Butter Filling

1/2 c. creamy peanut butter

1/2 c. confectioners' sugar

Combine well and press into bottom of cooled, baked crust

Fluffy Peanut Butter Filling

3 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 c. confectioners' sugar

1 c. creamy peanut butter

1  1/2 c. well chilled heavy cream

1/4 c. milk

2 t. vanilla

Beat cream cheese with confectioners' sugar until mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in milk, peanut butter and vanilla. In a chilled bowl, beat cream until it holds stiff peaks. Stir 1/3 of cream into peanut butter mixture and then fold in the remaining cream gently, but thoroughly.  Pour filling into pie crust. Sprinkle with 3 T. chopped unsalted nuts and 3 T. mini chocolate chips (optional). Chill covered for 4 hours or overnight. Serve with chocolate sauce, if you like.
