  • 1 9” refrigerated pie crust, thawed per package directions
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup Reese’s pieces
  • 1 cup chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). While the oven preheats, ensure your pie crust is thawed according to the package instructions.
  2. Roll out the pie crust and gently place it into a 9-inch pie plate. If desired, flute the edges of the crust for a decorative touch.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, creamy peanut butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer to beat the ingredients together until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla extract to the peanut butter mixture, continuing to beat until well incorporated.
  5. Sprinkle in the salt and gradually add the all-purpose flour to the mixture, mixing until the flour is fully combined and a dough forms.
  6. Gently fold in the Reese’s pieces and chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups until evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
  7. Transfer the peanut butter cookie dough mixture into the prepared pie crust, pressing it evenly across the bottom and up the sides of the crust.
  8. Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 35 minutes, or until the center is just set and the crust is golden brown.
  9. Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and allow it to cool slightly before serving.
  10. For the ultimate indulgence, serve the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Pie warm, topped with a generous scoop of your favorite ice cream and a decadent drizzle of chocolate syrup.

Serving and Storage Tips:

  1. Serving Suggestions:
    • Serve the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Pie warm for the ultimate indulgence.
    • Top each slice with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra touch of decadence.
    • Drizzle chocolate syrup or caramel sauce over the pie just before serving for added flavor and flair.
    • Garnish with additional Reese’s pieces or chopped peanut butter cups for a visually appealing presentation.
  2. Storage Instructions:
    • If you have any leftovers (which might be rare!), store the cooled pie in an airtight container or cover it tightly with plastic wrap.
    • Store the pie at room temperature for up to 2 days to maintain its freshness and texture.
    • For longer storage, refrigerate the pie for up to 5 days. Simply allow it to come to room temperature or reheat gently in the microwave before serving to restore its softness and flavor.
    • To freeze the pie, wrap it securely in plastic wrap and then aluminum foil to prevent freezer burn. It can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 months.
    • Thaw frozen pie slices overnight in the refrigerator before reheating or serving. Reheat individual slices in the microwave for a few seconds or in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10 minutes until warmed through.



  1. Chocolate Lovers’ Twist:
    • For an extra chocolatey indulgence, mix in some chocolate chips or chunks into the peanut butter cookie dough before baking. You can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or even white chocolate for different flavor profiles.
    • Drizzle melted chocolate over the cooled pie before serving for an additional layer of richness and decadence.
  2. Nutty Delight:
    • Experiment with different types of nuts for added crunch and flavor. Chopped almonds, pecans, or walnuts can be mixed into the dough along with the Reese’s pieces and peanut butter cups.
    • Substitute almond or cashew butter for the peanut butter to create a nuttier variation of the pie.
  3. Salty-Sweet Sensation:
    • Add a pinch of sea salt or sprinkle coarse salt over the pie just before baking to enhance the contrast of flavors and create a salty-sweet masterpiece.
    • Incorporate pretzel pieces into the cookie dough for a delightful crunch and salty twist.
  4. Fruity Fusion:
    • Mix dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries, or chopped dried apricots into the peanut butter cookie dough for a fruity burst of flavor.
    • Serve the pie with a side of fresh berries or a drizzle of raspberry sauce for a refreshing and colorful accompaniment.
  5. Miniature Marvels:
    • Instead of making one large pie, portion the cookie dough into mini pie tins or muffin cups for individual-sized treats.
    • Adjust the baking time accordingly to ensure the mini pies are baked to perfection.
  6. Cookie Sandwich Creation:
    • Use the peanut butter cookie dough to make sandwich cookies by sandwiching a layer of creamy peanut butter or chocolate ganache between two cookie rounds.
    • Roll the edges of the sandwich cookies in chopped nuts or mini chocolate chips for added texture and visual appeal.
  7. Gluten-Free Option:
    • Substitute the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend to make the pie suitable for those with gluten sensitivities or dietary preferences.
    • Ensure that all other ingredients used are also gluten-free, including the pie crust if using a pre-made one.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

  1. Can I use homemade pie crust instead of a store-bought one?
    • Absolutely! You can use your favorite homemade pie crust recipe instead of a store-bought one. Just make sure to pre-bake the crust according to your recipe’s instructions before adding the peanut butter cookie dough filling.
  2. Can I use chunky peanut butter instead of creamy peanut butter?
    • Yes, you can use chunky peanut butter if you prefer extra texture in your pie filling. Keep in mind that the consistency and texture of the filling may vary slightly compared to using creamy peanut butter.
  3. Can I make this pie ahead of time?
    • Yes, you can prepare the pie ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator before baking. Simply cover the pie with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. When ready to bake, allow the pie to come to room temperature before placing it in the oven.
  4. Can I freeze the pie for later?
