The 4 is more for the directions than the recipe. Especially when using white sugar, you have to cream the cream cheese and sugar (don't know why it needs the butter). Let that turn into fluffy goodness, then add the peanut butter and vanilla. No doubt homemade whipped cream is better, but Cool Whip works great on this one. An 8oz tub will make it smooth, but about 3/4 of a 16oz tub makes this a cloud of greatness. Because Cool Whip is alread sweet, I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and it was plenty sweet. For me, I didn't want to conflict with the peanut butter, so I used a store bought 2 extra slice graham cracker crust. Fit perfect. Also, this pie is plenty sweet all by itself. I can't imagine adding a bunch of peanut butter cups or caramel to the top. Some homemade whipped cream on top just adds to the greatness. Easy recipe to work with, and it's wonderful.
