I am back to talk more about my family's favorite gluten free crackers. If you remember last week, I showed you how to make a quiche recipe that even picky eaters like mine will love. The secret was the Lance Gluten Free Cheese Crackers.
Last night, I used one of the most popular things in our house to make mini pies. Peanut butter! If your family eats their peanut butter out of the jar, then they are going to love this fun no-bake peanut butter pie
When I brought these peanut butter sandwich crackers home a few months ago, my son ate a whole box by himself. (Okay, he is a growing teen, but wow!) This is a testament to these crackers. Lance Snacks uses real peanut butter, and no artificial ingredients, high fructose corn syrup, or hydrogenated oils in their crackers. You CAN taste the difference!

These Gluten Free Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers make the best gluten free pie crust! (They also make a fabulous snack for those school lunch boxes!) Thank goodness peanut butter is gluten free because my kids really love these crackers.
What I love about this peanut butter pie is that you don't have to cook it. This pie sets in your refrigerator or freezer, depending on how cold you want your pie.
No-bake pies are really popular in the summertime because you don't have to turn on your oven. Even though this recipe is great in the summer, this peanut butter pie no-bake recipe is really fun to make all year round.

Are you ready to make your own peanut butter pies? (*Note that I made mini pies for this recipe. This recipe will easily make a big pie too :-))
Let's make the crust first. Add your peanut butter crackers and butter to a food processor.
Your crust will be ground to medium-fine like in this photo.
Make sure your tart pan has a removable bottom so it is easier to get the tart out of the pan.
Use a spoon to press down the tart crust.
Whip the room temperature cream cheese with the cream and vanilla with an electric mixer.
Mix in the peanut butter.
Lastly, add the powdered sugar a little at a time and mix in.
Pour the peanut butter mixture over each crust. Top with chocolate chips and chill for 2 hours in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

Can you make these dairy-free?
You can easily make this peanut butter pie recipe dairy-free by substituting dairy-free cream cheese.
Can I use a different crust?
You can definitely use a different crust, Lance makes a plain gluten fre cracker that would be amazing in the crust. If you can't find it, graham crackers work really well too.
Is it possible to make this butter pie nut-free?
Yes, you can make this peanut butter pie recipe nut-free if you use graham crackers for the crust and SunButter instead of peanut butter.
