A peanut butter pie truffle will wow your guests at any party. And it's a total cinch to make!
I love to draw inspiration for new recipes from some of my favorite, tried-and-true, go-to recipes. I’ve been baking my whole life basically, and over many years, I’ve gathered a collection of favorite “core” recipes that I know inside and out, that I really love, that always turn out right, and that are plain and simple delicious.
I have thousands of recipes — I suppose most of us probably do. I have hundreds and hundreds that I’ve clipped from magazines and organized into photo albums. Then I have dozens of cookbooks. I also have a multitude of seasonal, special edition magazines, and the pages are so earmarked and tagged. I’ve also got a big box of family recipes.
But at the end of the day, don’t you feel like you have about 30 or 40 “core” recipes that you absolutely adore, and you know you’ll be making them FOREVER? Forever and ever? They’re timeless, classic, and simply delicious.
They’re not “flavor of the month”-type recipes, or something you’re really excited about right now, but you’ll make it a few times and then forget all about it. You know what I mean?
Earlier this year, I got SO organized around my house, and one big project was going through ALL my recipes and getting them incredibly organized. I got rid of cookbooks that I don’t really care for, categorized my recipe clippings — everything is either by season, type of meal/dish, or by a favorite ingredient (peanut butter, for example!).
Whatever made sense for me to remember, that’s how I came up with a good system. Most importantly, I made a small album dedicated to all my “core” recipes. Favorites that I will always love and will want to make again and again.
Needless to say, my Grandma’s No Bake Peanut Butter Pie recipe is one of those core recipes. We’ve loved it in my family for longer than I’ve been alive. It’s quick, easy, rich, creamy, and yet somehow light too… it’s just perfect. Full of peanut butter flavor!
It’s a dream dessert for how simple and fast it is to prepare, and for how much deliciousness it delivers. That pie has served as inspiration for me countless times. If you’re a Reese’s fan, you’ve got to try this Reese’s Cup No Bake Peanut Butter Pie recipe!
Anyway, I used that same peanut butter pie filling, and assembled it into a trifle with layers of whipped cream and vanilla cake. This No Bake Peanut Butter Pie Trifle is a cinch to throw together, and it will feed and please a crowd!
