I have been on a peanut butter kick lately in my desserts and even in my morning protein shakes. I just love peanut butter and always have.
Come on, how can somebody not like peanut butter, right? Okay, I know there are some people out there, but it is a mystery to me.
I would have to say that the only other sweet treat thing that gets close to my love of peanut butter would be cheesecake! Again, you might be aware of my affections for this confection from my Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake post.
Oh man, look at that! I am a poet! Get it “affection for this confection”? Not impressed with my skill? Well, this cheesecake should more than compensate for my poetry talent or the lack of should I say!
It’s okay, I know you guys don’t stop by for my mad rhyming skills. Thank goodness that pressure if off! But now back to the reason you ARE here! The Peanut Butter Cheesecake!
I bake this and most of my cheesecakes, for that matter, in my favorite 9″ tart pan but you could absolutely bake this cheesecake in a cake pan or glass baking dish. I would say maybe a 9×9 or 11×9 if you go that route.
This cheesecake can be sliced into 10-12 pieces, which makes for big smiles on those you share it with. But, if you’re not into sharing much then I have to say this… hide it and hide it fast!
Just a note, this cheesecake is awesome as a make ahead freezer treat. Just pull out a slice (or the whole cheesecake) and let it sit on the counter to defrost, or overnight in the fridge.
Because I am a true friend, I need to tell you that there is one complicated part of this cheesecake. And that part is….WAITING!
It is hard, just ask my husband. I had to warn him over and over “do not cut this cheesecake” before I left the house to run my errands. I love him…but I know him too well. He can’t be trusted with these matters of dessert. Thankfully he held out, and was a happy man when I finally served him up a slice…. or TWO!
Items I use in this cheesecake can be found in my Amazon Store. I appreciate you guys when you click and order through my affiliate links. These help keep my blog and recipe creation going! I bake this cheesecake as well as most of my others in this Wilton 9 inch tart pan. It is extremely easy to use and easy to remove the cheesecake once cooled. Take a look at this pan here in my Amazon Store.
