No-Bake Peanut Butter & Jelly Pie

by Erin

Your favorite childhood sandwich combined with your favorite peanut butter pie results in a creamy and sweet peanut butter and jelly pie!

No-Bake Peanut Butter & Jelly Pie 3

Peanut butter pie is always a favorite, so much so that I’ve made 6 different variations with one more to add to the list today. In honor of National PB&J day I swapped out the chocolate crust for a Nutter Butter crust and added jelly on top (technically chia jam in my case).

But as I typed this I realized the last peanut butter pie recipe I shared was only a couple months ago, to celebrate National Peanut Butter Day, in the form of a fluffernutter pie. Clearly I get on kicks and have a hard time breaking them, or my recent bout of terrible memory is striking again  – or both. Either way it’s peanut butter pie, are you really going to scoff?

No-Bake Peanut Butter & Jelly Pie 1

Speaking of Nutterbutter vs PB&J, which one do you mostly associate with your childhood? I most definitely was raised on PB&J and to this day am not sure I’ve ever had a true Fluffernutter in it’s traditional form. Sure I’ve made pie, blondies, rice crispies, and ice cream, but no sandwiches. It was something I only vaguely remember being a thing as a child and never was presented with an opportunity to try one.

I don’t think marshmallow fluff even existed in my house, and I don’t recall any of my friends having it in the brown bag lunch either. Maybe it’s a regional thing as I grew up in Western NY? The real question, however, is can I pack a slice of this pie for lunch?

Makes 1 pie



24 peanut butter sandwich cookies, finely crushed (about 2-1/2 cups)

4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted


1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, room temperature

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 cups heavy cream


1/2 cup strawberry jam (or preferred flavor jelly)

1/4 cup chopped strawberries (or fruit to match jelly)

Fresh whipped cream


  1. In a medium bowl, stir the cookie crumbs and melted butter together with a fork. Press crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of a 9″ pie plate. Chill for 30 minutes before filling.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the peanut butter, cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined.
  3. Whip the heavy cream on medium-high until soft peaks form. Stir 1/3 of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture to lighten it up. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold in the remaining whipped cream until thoroughly combined. Spoon mixture into pie shell and smooth to edges of pie.
  4. In a small bowl, combine jam/jelly and fruit. Spread evenly over the top of the pie. Refrigerate until ready to serve with more whipped cream.

No jar of marshmallow fluff ever entered our house, and I did not grow up on pb&j sandwiches, either. My mother was a strange one, and the peanut butter sandwiches she made had sweet pickle relish. Her reasoning was that you needed something to counteract the sweet and sticky of peanut butter. To this day I’ve never had a pb&j sandwich, and, unfortunately, I no longer digest peanut butter well, so I tend to stay away from it. That said, your pie sounds very good.

Never had a PB&J? As someone who doesn’t like pickles the combo of that and peanut butter is most unappealing! But I get her logic, sounds like something my mom would do haha.

Oh, my goodness, Erin. I think I’m in love. Wow. I can’t wait to try this recipe. And the nutter butters are genius.

Thank you so much Camilla!

If you’re gonna get on a kick with something, peanut butter pie is certainly a great choice. I love that you used nutter butters for the crust.
