Pam and Alex are friends who own the Dana Point Cafe in Dana Point, California. Pam made her famous Peanut Butter Pie (with graham cracker crust) for the grand opening of the cafe. When I asked her to share her recipe for the pie with me, she was reluctant to do so, so I figured out this recipe on my own. - Donna Schumacher

Peanut Butter Pie by Donna Schumacher


Beat cream cheese, peanut butter and sugar until fluffy. Fold in ¾ carton of Cool Whip. Blend well. Put into pie crust shell and spread rest of Cool Whip on top. Refrigerate.


  • 1¼ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup melted margarine or butter

Mix well and press into a 9" pie dish. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

A special note from the Chef Chef's note: Smart and Final Foods or Costco carries a product named Pastry Pride,[1] which is a non-dairy whipping cream. I find it to be an excellent substitute for Cool Whip as it does not sweat, so it is more workable to use for decorating and in recipes .
