Old Fashioned Baked Peanut Butter Pie

This peanut butter pie is baked to perfection. It is gooey, peanut buttery and delicious. It is especially good with a drizzle of hot fudge!

     If you have never had a baked peanut butter pie, now is the time to change that! This is completely different than the fluffy no bake peanut butter pies but every bit as delicious.  You are going to love the texture and how easy it is to make too.


     Surprise!  Who guessed the fudge sauce would be drizzled over a peanut butter pie?  Be honest, you had no idea.

     Not to mention a baked peanut butter pie!  This takes everything you know about peanut butter pie and turns it on its head.

    Rather than a light and fluffy filling full of whipped topping and air, this is an eggy denser filling that has just the right balance of caramelized top and gooey filling.  Drizzle it with some fudge sauce and get ready to be delighted.


     The texture reminds me a lot of a pecan pie, but without the pecans. And no crunch from the nuts. Though I suppose you could use crunchy peanut butter if you want a little crunch.

     Or heck, throw in a handful or two of peanuts if you want to. It's your pie, you do you!  We like the smooth texture though and it has just enough yummy peanut flavor.

     If you want to go all out and make your own pie crust, make MiMi's flaky pie crust.  It is super flaky and delicious.

     Nobody will care if you use a frozen pie crust though. They will be too mystified by the wonderful filling to care about where the pie crust came from.

    Besides, it can be our little secret anyway! Just do whatever feels best to you!

If you like peanut butter pie, but want to try something a bit different I also highly recommend my no-bake peanut butter pie with chocolate covered pretzel crust. It has that sweet and salty thing going for it with super fluffy filling.  Plus that fluffy filling doesn't use cool whip for a double bonus!

    Another fun twist on a peanut butter pie is fluffernutter cookie pie. It is like a peanut butter cookie laced with mini marshmallows and baked into a pie shell.

     But before you run away to make those pies, please promise me you will give this one a try.  It is worth the tiny bit of effort for sure!

Old Fashioned Baked Peanut Butter Pie

This peanut butter pie is baked to perfection. It is gooey, peanut buttery and delicious. It is especially good with a drizzle of hot fudge!
prep time: 10 Mcook time: 60 Mtotal time: 70 M

ingredients:

  • 1 pie crust
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional (but highly recommended!): Super easy hot fudge sauce for drizzling

instructions:

How to cook Old Fashioned Baked Peanut Butter Pie

  1. Place pie crust in a pie plate and preheat the oven to 350 F
  2. Mix together the sugar, peanut butter, corn syrup and salt until well combined.
  3. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. You can use a mixer, but don't whip it too hard. If you create too many air bubbles they will be visible on the top of the pie
  4. Bake for 60-70 minutes until the top is puffed and the middle is almost set. If the filling is browning to quickly, you may have to loosely tent with foil about half way through. Don't let the foil touch the filling, as it will remove some of the caramelized top. (Not that such a thing has ever happened to me.)
  5. Allow to cool before serving. The top will sink as it cools. Store in the refrigerator.
