Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Pie
This gluten-free peanut butter pie has a smooth, creamy cream cheese-based peanut butter filling and an easy, gluten-free Oreo crust.
Servings 12 slices
For the Crust:
- 24 gluten-free Oreos
- 4 Tablespoons butter melted
For the Peanut Butter Filling:
- 12 oz cream cheese the brick kind in the foil wrapper
- 1 ½ cups creamy peanut butter
- 1 ¾ cups powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups heavy cream
- Crushed Reese's Pieces optional
For the Whipped Cream Topping:
- 1 cup heavy cream
- ¼ cup powdered sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Make the Filling:
In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix until completely smooth, scraping down the sides and bottom 1-2 times.
With the mixer running on low, slowly pour in the heavy cream. Scrap down the sides and bottom of the bowl, then increase the speed of the mixture to medium-high and whip until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
Sprinkle the crushed Reese's Pieces over the bottom of the cooled crust (if using). Spread the peanut butter filling over the crust. Smooth the top. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or up to 3 days.
Peanut Butter: I use a smooth peanut butter like Jiff or Skippy for this recipe.
Cream Cheese: Use the block kind of cream cheese that comes in a foil wrapper (rather than the kind in a tub).
Tip: Be sure to use “heavy cream” because it contains a milk fat percentage of 35% (or higher). Many brands of heavy whipping cream only have 30-35% milk fat, whereas heavy cream has 35% or higher. This mousse needs the extra milk fat to be sure it turns out thick and creamy. I prefer Darigold heavy cream (40% milk fat). Not all brands or cartons label the milk fat percentage, so to be safe, look for a brand that has 35% (or higher) written on the carton.
