I found this pie to be very peanut-buttery and rich - almost too rich. I definitely wouldn't agree that it needs more peanut butter and less cream cheese. Also, my filling came out pretty fluffy.. if it doesn't, maybe the problem is your folding technique?
When I put the filling in the pie shell, it looked really empty, so I made another batch of filling and made a nice full pie (it was overkill though - too much to fit in the pie shell). I think next time I'll just put the rest of the tub of cool whip on top, and then top that with the peanuts.. it'll look nicer, fill out the pie, and cut down on the richness. I would have given this recipe 5 stars if those had been the instructions.
Oh - I also added mini chocolate chips to the top for a little different flavor.
**This is an update since I first wrote this review.. I looked back at my recipe, and saw that I had written down 1/2 cup peanut butter instead of 1/3.. not a huge difference, but that could be why it was very peanut-buttery.
