Peanut Butter Pumpkin Pie with Chocolate Crust

by Erin

I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #PumpkinWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Today the offspring of peanut butter pie and pumpkin pie was born! She’s a happy, snuggly, delicious child ;-).

Did I really mix peanut butter and chocolate into a pumpkin pie? What a silly question, of course I did! Have you met me? I’m the pro of can’t leave things be, mix things in where they shouldn’t be (or should they?), and general Frankenstein creations. Two delicious pies in one!

After almost 9 years of blogging you kind of have to get creative or else you run out of content. Besides, I had to figure out some way to combine the last day of #PumpkinWeek with #PBchocSat! All I did was substitute 1/2 cup pumpkin with peanut butter and used an Oreo crust, but you could also make your own chocolate graham cracker crust.

Makes 1 pie



24 Oreo cookies, finely crushed (about 2-1/2 cups)

4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted


2 eggs, lightly beaten

1-1/4 cups fresh pumpkin puree (or canned)

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

3/4 cup Dixie Crystals sugar

1-1/2 Tbsp all-purpose flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp ground allspice

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup evaporated milk or heavy whipping cream


  1. To make the crust: 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-inch greased pie plate. Chill for 30 minutes before filling.
  2. To make the filling: Preheat oven to 400F with a rack in the bottom third of the oven.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, pumpkin, and peanut butter. In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients and add to the pumpkin mixture. Add milk (or cream) and mix until smooth.
  4. Pour the filling into the crust and transfer the pie to the oven. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the filling is firm (it will still jiggle, but if you touch it, it shouldn’t be wet). Reduce the oven temperature to 325F and bake for an additional 10-20 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 175F. Transfer the pie to a wire rack and allow to cool completely before serving*.

*You can make ahead of time. Cover and refrigerate overnight, removing about 1 hour before you intend to serve.
