Better Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie…from the Hurried Homemaker

peanut butter ice cream pie

Happy Monday to you, folks! Are you back to work yet, or still on holiday time? Me…I’m kind of still on holiday – I have a Guest Poster again today! Welcome Rhiana from the Hurried Homemaker, who has transformed the typical Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie into something… better! Take it away, Rhiana!


I only wish I was a foodie, but I love to cook and bake. It is my therapy … well, that and eating what I’ve made! It would be fabulous to spend days in the kitchen crafting new recipes, but raising and home schooling 2 kids kind of puts a damper on that. Because my kitchen therapy time is limited, I try to come up with simple, easy to make, and delicious recipes. Here is my latest (and kids’ new favorite) creation…Peanut “Better” Ice Cream Pie.

This is a simple recipe – full of peanut butter flavor, enriched with chocolate. I like to make my own fudge sauce and ice cream, but you can make it quicker (and easier) if you wanted by using pre-made.


Peanut “Better” Ice Cream Pie

Start by making the fudge sauce and ice cream. As they finish, start the crust.
For the crust: place cookies in food processor and blend until fine. Add melted butter. Press mixture into 9 inch pie dish.
Once fudge sauce is complete, pour a layer over the crust. Let cool. Top with ice cream. Crumble Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups over the ice cream. Add another layer of fudge sauce. Top with whipped topping. I also like to sprinkle a small amount of crushed cookies on top.
Serve immediately (why wait?) or freeze and save for later.


Thanks so much, Rhiana! This looks delicious!

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday weekend and are fat and happy! I for one ate entirely too much – dear Lord, have you tried the chocolate covered Peeps?? Who had the foresight to invent those things?!?

The devil, I imagine.

Anyway…be sure to check back here tomorrow for another new recipe, and just as importantly, a QUIZ! 10pm, EST, study up on the 1980s! Up for grabs is a Le Creuset Pan to the first person to answer all of the questions correctly…FUN! Hope to see you then!
