This was some good cheesecake....if I do say so myself. :)
I was informed on Friday (I believe) that I was on dessert duty for my connection group (Bible study). However, I didn't have anything in mind. So I sent a text back to my friend Kate and asked her what she wanted. She told me she wanted peanut butter cup cheesecake. So that is what I made.
I've never made this cheesecake before, but it was easy! Well, for me anyway. I love making cheesecakes. I always enjoy a good excuse to make one.
Anyway, for the crust, I mixed together Oreos and the Fastco peanut butter cookies (that look like Oreos). I did this because I didn't have enough Oreos, and thought a little peanut butter flavor in the crust would be just fine.
Usually once the filling is in the springform, I just drop/tap the form on the counter a couple of times to even out the ripples....but that didn't happen today. So I tried to smooth it out as best as possible. But, I wasn't too concerned. It was going to get covered up with some chocolate when all is said and done.
Finished product pre-cutting. I didn't cut it until right before we ate it. So I just left it in the springform. Makes for easier travel that way as well.
16 slices cut.
Believe it or not, some people even cut these slices in half! It was a little rich. But oh so yummy!
Yes. I will most definitely be making this cheesecake again.
I love it when I make a new cheesecake and actually get to try it!
Finally, I attempted to put together some sort of recipe for this. Please know, I just usually do my own thing when it comes to cheesecakes. I apologize for the recipe now. Please let me know if you have questions or if something isn't making sense.
