I made two of these pies: one for my parents and one for my boyfriend's parents for Easter. The reception I got was pretty positive. My mom compared it to eating a peanut butter cup, which is a popular response I guess! I love the texture, the taste... everything about the pie. Because of how rich it is though, I would suggest doing as others did and increase the amount of cool whip used. I meant to but forgot.
As for other changes to the recipe, I used a chocolate cookie pie crust (from natural foods department), natural peanut butter (sugar free), and neufchatel cheese in place of cream cheese (makes a great, lower in fat substitute!). I sprinked crushed Newman's organic peanut butter cups over the top of the pie. Yum! My peanut butter had no sweetener (used Smuckers Natural) so reducing the sugar wasn't really necessary. Also, I left out the unsalted butter that was called for.
I will definitely make this pie again. It's great for all those peanut butter lovers out there!
