  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • Creamy Cheesecake Filling:
  • 32 oz (4 packages) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Peanut Butter Drizzle Topping:
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Peanut Butter Crust:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C) and prepare a 9-inch springform pan by greasing the bottom and sides.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted unsalted butter, granulated sugar, and 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter. Mix until the ingredients are well combined and the mixture resembles wet sand.
  3. Press the peanut butter crust mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared springform pan.
  4. Bake the crust in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until it sets. Remove from the oven and let it cool while you prepare the cheesecake filling.

Creamy Cheesecake Filling:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add the granulated sugar and continue beating until well combined.
  3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, making sure each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  4. Mix in the sour cream, creamy peanut butter, and vanilla extract until the cheesecake filling is smooth and velvety.

Baking the Cheesecake:

  1. Pour the creamy cheesecake filling into the prepared springform pan with the peanut butter crust.
  2. Smooth the top with a spatula to ensure an even surface.
  3. Bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes
