Party Panache, Peanut Butter Oreo Cheesecake

.

Okay, let’s just start with

this isn’t diet food…

.

.

The good news is, you only need a sliver to satisfy your sweet tooth!

.

.

It’s easy to make, and I mean, peanut butter and chocolate…

AND cheesecake???

What’s not to love!

.

.

1 large package of Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies is enough to make the crust, and have plenty left to put into the filling and garnish the top

.

.

Make the crust first by combining 1/2 of the cookie package, about 15-18 crushed cookies with 3 T melted butter

.

.

The easiest way to do this is in a food processor,

but you can also crush the cookies in a large ziplock bag with a rolling pin, and then add the butter and mix in the bag

Press crumbs into a greased 9 1/2″ springform pan {or regular pie dish}

Press evenly in the bottom and about 1/2″ up the sides

.

.

The cheesecake filling is made with cream cheese,

peanut butter, sour cream, eggs and sugar

.

.

Once you’ve made the cheesecake base,

break 10-12 cookies into quarters, and don’t worry if they crumble a little, {save all those delicious crumbs too}

Gently stir them into the cheesecake batter

.

.

Pour batter into prepared pan and place the pan on a rimmed baking sheet

.

.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, and check

You want the middle to be barely set, still a little jiggling

Return to oven for a few minutes if necessary

.

.

Upon cooling, the cheesecake might develop some cracks in the middle

but not to worry!

This is easily solved

.

.

A drizzle with a thick chocolate sauce will cover the cracks

.

.

And be the base of a cookie garnish!

.

.

Refrigerate for 4 hours before serving

,

.

This is so rich, cut it into thin wedges to serve

using a sharp knife and wiping blade before each cut

.
