Why You Must Make

  • Much as I hate to admit it, I had no self-control around this incredibly decadent peanut butter lasagna! Thank goodness it was going to an event and my only temptation was the half slice that I reserved for Katie, plus the gooey knives and spatulas I used to cut this masterpiece into slices.
  • I pretty much licked the pan and utensils clean after I hid the to-go platter in the fridge. I can’t say I wasn’t a little envious of those who were going to indulge that day!
  • I am not a fan of straight-up peanut butter, so I was a bit apprehensive about melting a half cup to drizzle between the layers. But, fear not, there was enough sweetness from the surrounding cookies and pudding to pacify my taste buds! This peanut butter cookie lasagna tasted amazing to say the least!!

Ingredient Notes

  • Kitchen Staples – Powdered Sugar
  • Nutter Butter Cookies – 16 ounce box
  • Peanut Butter – I used creamy, then melted it in the microwave to make it easier to drizzle.
  • Vanilla Pudding – Small box. Either Instant or Cook and Serve will work. Make according to the package directions.
  • Heavy Cream -36% butterfat
  • Mini Peanut Butter cups, Reese’s Pieces, crushed Nutter Butter Cookies, Fall Colored M&Ms, and more warmed peanut butter to garnish. optional.

Recipe Tips

  • Make it easy on yourself and just scoop out servings. No need to slice into squares.
  • Use any favorite peanut butter cookies. Even homemade peanut butter cookies will work.
  • Make sure the pudding is cool before layering. If it’s warm, the whipped cream may deflate.
  • Many versions of dessert lasagna use Cool Whip. Taking the extra step to make sweetened homemade whipped cream is worth the effort.

Reese’s Pieces and a couple sizes of peanut butter cups were in our pantry, so I chopped and sprinkled these over the top. You can also drizzle some more peanut butter or crush some Nutter Butter cookies for a little crunch!

This no-bake dessert lasagna will need to make an encore appearance in my kitchen. But next time, I’ll dish up a lady-like serving and eat it with a spoon (or fork) instead of off of a spatula! If you’re a peanut butter fan, you’ll definitely want to add this Peanut Butter Cookie Lasagna to your menu ASAP!
