Sometimes people tell me they're too intimidated by cheesecakes to attempt to bake one. Here's a great one to ease you into the process. No springform pans, no water bath, just a creamy peanut butter filling in a premade Oreo crust.
Top with either chocolate and/or peanut butter chips or chocolate sauce.
2 packages (8 oz.) Philadelphia Cream Cheese softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 t. vanilla
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
3 T. milk
1 Oreo pie crust
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat first three ingredients together with a mixer until well blended. Add peanut butter and milk; mix well.
Add eggs; mix just until blended.
Pour into crust.
Bake 40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.
Top with chocolate and/or peanut butter chips.
