Peanut Butter Pie: FAQs
If any questions popped up while you were reading this post, here’s some additional info about this recipe that you’ll want to keep in mind!
You mean you have LEFTOVERS? Oh my goodness! (Just kidding!!) It should last about 5 days.
I’d say about 3 months!
If you want! I’ve seen this exact pie made with graham cracker crust or any other pre-made store bought crust. I just think it’s tastiest with chocolate cookie crust…yum!!
Anything you think might taste good, to be honest!! Add graham cracker crumbs, ice cream syrup – get creative and this pie will reward your mouth with the best flavors you could ever imagine!
If you freeze it for about an hour it should be OK! Remember to let it soften when you take it out.
Be sure to fold in the whipped topping! Do not just stir it in – fold it in! If you fold it in, your pie should be fine.
