Make Ahead and Storage:
How long ahead can I make peanut butter pie with custard?
A custard pie can be made about 4 days in advance. Store covered in the fridge until ready to eat.
Storage: Cover the pie and store it in the refrigerator for up to 4 days
Reheating: Reheat the individual sliced on a microwave-proof dish, or reheat in the oven by placing the pie on a cookie sheet and covering loosely with non-stick foil. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until heated through
Freezing: I do not recommend freezing this pie as the custard tends to pull apart in the freezer making an impact on the texture
What is Peanut Butter Pie with Custard Made of?
Corn syrup, peanut butter, eggs, almond extract, salt, sugar, and a graham cracker crust
How many Calories are in a Peanut Butter Pie with a Custard?
It really depends on the ingredients you use and whether or not you use less fat ingredients. A typical peanut butter pie is around 200 calories per slice
How do you know when a Custard Pie is done baking?
- A custard pie should be firm around the edges but still jiggly in the middle
- This middle should not be runny, but when you move the pie back and forth it will jiggle like Jell-O
- A knife inserted into the middle might have custard bits on it but will not have a runny filling
Tips and Tricks:
- if you like Reese’s peanut butter cups, then try using a chocolate crust or drizzle chocolate syrup over the top of this pie
- you can also change the crust out to an Oreo cookie crust for an altogether different flavor
- partially through baking, cover the crust loosely with foil to prevent over-browning
If you are ready to make this delicious easy to make peanut butter pie, then let’s make sure you have everything you’ll need:
- peanut butter – creamy peanut butter is recommended for this recipe, but you can use reduced fat
- corn syrup – I prefer light corn syrup to get that beautiful caramel color, but you can use dark corn syrup
- sugar – granulated sugar
- salt – use table salt for this recipe
- almond extract – if you do not like the almond flavor, you can substitute vanilla
- eggs – large eggs
- graham cracker crust – I used a pre-made graham cracker crust in a foil 9-inch pie plate
How do you make Peanut Butter Pie with Custard?

- you can chill the pie in the fridge or serve warm
