No-Bake SunButter Cream Pie

SunButter Cream Pie - 5

Summer makes me lazy. That pile of dishes from dinner? Eh, I’ll get to it tomorrow. The hamper full of laundry? It’ll get done…eventually. Likewise, things that take 15 steps in the kitchen that I’m normally willing to conquer head-first just seem too much work for me right now, when I’d much rather sit on the couch and eat ice cream. In fact, my laziness has driven me to create a few desserts that don’t require much effort at all, and one of them is this creamy SunButter pie. I’ve been eager to try the new no-stir SunButter variety ever since it came out, but the response to my letter to Wegmans asking them to carry it was no. You can however purchase it from Amazon in 3 packs, which is what I did, and it goes just perfectly in this pie. Of course, you can always substitute peanut butter or almond butter if you don’t have allergies!

For the crust:

For the filling:

To make the crust, combine the crushed graham crackers with the melted butter. Press into a 9″ pie pan and place in the freezer for about 10 minutes.

  13. Can you believe I’ve never heard of SunButter until today? (of course, my husband has whatever the opposite of a peanut allergy is – he eats jars of Jif like they’re going out of style).

    by Jenna on Jun 28, 2011 at 9:45 am

  23. I have wanted to try sunbutter … this is a perfect reason to do it now.

    by Brenda @ SweetSimpleStuff on Jun 28, 2011 at 9:57 am

  24. do you have any ideas for subbing the crust with something else to make it low carb? Thanks!

    by Shelley on Jun 28, 2011 at 11:21 am

  25. I love this! I also just bought a new jar of SunButter. Since my son and I are allergic to peanuts, this would be a great treat…I’m feeling the need for some chocolate on top 🙂 Can’t wait to give it a try!

    by Kim of Mo'Betta on Jun 28, 2011 at 2:24 pm

  26. Shelley – I’d suggest spooning the filling into a glass, and serving it like a mousse. You could also layer it with chocolate and/or whipped cream. Good luck!

    by Tracy on Jun 28, 2011 at 6:23 pm

  27. This looks amazing — I’ve just added it to my holiday weekend menu! Thanks!

  29. Hi, Tracy ~
    Yet another winner from your kitchen. And this one does not require oven heat. Perfect! I’m making it this evening for a houseful of hungry pre-teen soccer players. I may “decorate” with raspberries. Thanks for the continued inspiration.

  30. I am doing everything possible not to turn on the oven right now, so this pie is definitely calling my name.

    by Cookin' Canuck on Jun 29, 2011 at 6:27 pm
