"This is a cheese cake recipe I made with my brother in mind. He loves peanut butter, and will eat it straight from the jar. I always try new peanut butter desserts out on him first since he is the expert. If you don't have half-and-half you may substitute milk."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line the outside of a 9 inch springform pan with aluminum foil.

WOW. I love peanut butter, and I LOVE this cheesecake. This is by far the best peanut butter dessert I've ever tasted. I used a full cup of peanut butter (instead of 3/4 cup) and poured the mixture into a Oreo crust (to save some time). I've had the best results as far as texture by cooking it for about 45 minutes or until it is golden on the edges and soft in the middle. Then I turn off the heat and crack the oven door and let it cool to room temperature before refrigerating. If you like peanut butter, you'll love this cheesecake!


This was SOOOO delicious & SOOOO easy to make! I made it for a friend that I work with and EVERYONE loved it! Easy, easy, easy to make. I put all ingredients in my food processor and poured it over the crust to bake. It freezes well also. Just one tip - let the top of it cool then spread with a thin layer of peanut butter and top off with crushed peanuts & a handful of mini chocolate chips for a nice, finshed presentation! ENJOYED THIS ONE!!!!!!!!!!!


As I type, I am indulging in another piece of this FANTASTIC cheesecake!! Wow. On our first date (wedding day too) my husband and I shared a piece of cheesecake like this that was made by a dessert shop in our area. It holds special memories and we try and have one on special occasions /anniversaries. But after 14 years of marriage, their little 5 inch cheesecake at $30 bucks a pop, started adding up! I didn't want to buy one this year so, I turned to my favorite friend, Allrecipes! I stumbled upon this recipe and I'm SOOO glad! This one, as my husband states, is even better than the 'Affairs' cheesecake!!!! As far as particulars, I took the advice of previous reviewers (thx!!) and used the 1 1/2 c. crushed chocolate wafers and 6 T. melted butter crust - a MUST! I also used the mini chocolate chips (1 1/2 c.). I baked it for the recommended time 45-50 minutes and then turned the oven off, cracked the door and brought it to room temp. in there. Then I chilled it. Make sure you chill it for the recommended time (key to good cheesecake), if not over night. Otherwise, you'll have a soft center. This is the best recipe. Thanks so much!!!!!
