Peanut Butter Nutella Nutter Butter Pie



I think I have a problem. Do they have a 12-step program for Nutter Butter Lovers?

I've been using Nutter Butters a lot lately. I made ice cream, a halloween treat, and even another crust with them just a couple weeks ago.

And now I bring you this pie. With yet another Nutter Butter theme.

But this one isn't my fault. This one is all my husband.


We were at dinner one night awhile ago (alone, so of course we were talking about my blog and food, because that's good date-night banter) and he said I should make a Nutter Butter crust.

Thousands of ideas popped into my head.

Then he said, oh, and make a peanut butter filling too.


And then he mentioned Nutella.

And I knew I was going to make this pie.

Unfortunately, I thought he was being all original and I was going to take the blogging world by storm with his ingenious idea of a Peanut Butter Nutella Nutter Butter Pie. It would be amazing.

And then I Googled it.

*Sigh*

Maybe the idea isn't original...but I did make up the recipe as I went along, so we can pretend it's all ingenious and original and fabulous, right?


And you can totally make this ahead of time, because while it's good room temp or from the fridge, it's even better frozen.

{Also hubby's idea, BTW. I married a genius.}


Peanut Butter Nutella Nutter Butter Pie

Ingredients:
For the Crust:
23 Nutter Butter cookies
6 tablespoons butter, melted

For the Whipped Cream:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons brown sugar

For the Nutella Layer:
½ cup Nutella
2 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon brown sugar

For the Peanut Butter Layer:
1 cup peanut butter
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup brown sugar

Mini Nutter Butters, for garnish

Directions:
1.       Make the crust: Finely crush Nutter Butters in a food processor. Stir in melted butter and press into the bottoms and sides of a 9” pie plate. Chill until ready to use.
2.       Make the whipped cream: Whip heavy cream and brown sugar in an electric mixer using whisk and a cold bowl until peaks form. Chill until ready to use.
3.       Make the Nutella layer: Beat Nutella, cream cheese, and brown sugar with a hand mixer until combined. Fold in 1/3 of the whipped cream. Spread in the prepared crust and chill until ready to add the next layer.
4.       Make the peanut butter layer: Beat peanut butter, cream cheese, and brown sugar with a hand mixer until creamy. Fold in the remaining 2/3 whipped cream. Spread over Nutella layer. Garnish with mini Nutter Butters, if desired.
5.       This pie is good chilled or room temperature, but it is even better frozen! Cover with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator or freezer until ready to eat.

Serves 8 (ha ha ha ha!)

Anyway to de-fat this recipe without affecting the outcome?

This may be completely blasphemous and antithetical to ask but... nutrition information and/or Weight Watchers Points + value? (ha ha, right?!?)

OMG, that sounds beyond incredible. But like the other people commented, I don't even want to think about the nutritional (or lack thereof) information. The fat content on this must be incredible. Still, it would probably be divine...

This looks AWESOME!
Q: Is there a GFree option for the Nutter Butters?

Can you please Pin this? There is a similar recipe on your Pinterest board, but not exactly the same as it does not have the peanut butter in it.

I pinned it to the "My Stuff" board on my pinterest page (Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust). Thanks for reading!

Hmmm...I'm not sure. I've never bought Gluten Free products, but I did a quick google search for GF peanut butter cookies and some packaged brands came up. Maybe try Amazon? Or Whole Foods, possibly. Good luck, and let me know if you find anything!

Thank you!

You could de-fat it a lot by substituting ingredients. Low or fat-free cream cheese and low fat peanut butter would be a big fat and calorie cutter. I don't think Nutella comes in any low-fat form, but you could also sub fat-free Cool Whip for the whipped cream. I use that a lot, and it works in fresh or frozen pies. I think the Nutter Butters are stuck being full calorie too, unless one of the diet brands sells something "healthier". Good luck and let me know what you think if you go that route. :) Thanks for reading!

Definitely no low-fat in the pie the way it's made here. But, you can easily substitute low-fat butter, cream cheese and peanut butter and use fat-free cool whip in place of the whipped cream. WW has a peanut butter pie I love that uses all those ingredients. It's SO good.

Yes, fat makes everything better! (Except how the clothes fit, I guess.) Go for the low-fat options to sub where you can and you wouldn't even notice it. :)

I know what Hubby is getting for Father's Day! PS What if I don't have a food processor?

He'll love it! If you don't have a food processor you can put the cookies in a ziploc bag, seal it all but about 1/2" (so air can escape) and use a rolling pin to crush the cookies. It won't be as fine of a crumb but it'll work just fine. Or, you could buy yourself the food processor and then pretend it's his gift and you thought that's what he asked for. Or would that be a stretch?
