Creamy peanut butter filling in a crunchy gluten-free chocolate cookie crust, this gluten-free peanut butter pie recipe has been a family favorite for years. With a dollop of whipped cream on top, it is perfection!
Happy Pi Day!
What is Pi Day, you ask? Pi (π) =3.14159265359. Today's date is 3/14/15 and it is 9:26 a.m. (and if you want to get really nerdy 53:59 seconds)

One of my favorite pies of all time is this Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Pie. It is so rich and creamy, and I love the crunchy cookie crust.
I love peanut butter. Reese's are my favorite candy, because peanut butter. I always put peanut butter on my ice cream. Peanut butter cookies, especially monster cookies... I just love the stuff!
My family started making this peanut butter pie when I was a little girl. My dad loved peanut butter just as much as I do now, so it was an instant hit and has since been a family favorite. Now we make this gluten-free recipe and it is on our Thanksgiving table every single year. Most years we make 2 of them to ensure that there will be leftovers.
I love that this pie is virtually no bake (you bake the crust for just 10 minutes, but other than that it is no-bake.) It is so easy to make, and it is so rich. Once it chills longer it sets up quite firm. I couldn't wait for it to set before taking these pictures though. So just know, if you chills overnight it will be set up a lot more. Just let it chill for an hour or so if you want it soft like mine was. Garnish with lightly sweetened whipped cream, or more gluten-free cookie crumbs.
