Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Anything that starts with an Oreo crust and has peanut butter in it? Has to be good. I made this a couple of weeks ago and am making it again this weekend. Because? See the first sentence. Oreo crust. Peanut butter. You should try it. (From the cincyshopper.com blog, via Pinterest, where you will see that I have way more pins on my Desserts board than any other board. Clearly I need to pin more salad recipes.)

Peanut Butter Dessert The Loopy EweNo Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Crust:

24 Oreo Cookies
5 Tbl. melted butter

Filling:

24 oz. softened cream cheese
8 oz. Cool Whip
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
30 Reese’s Miniatures, cut into quarters
chocolate syrup

Cut the Reese’s miniatures and put them in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden.

Crush the Oreos in a food processor and mix in the butter. Pat this mixture into the bottom of a springform pan. Refrigerate this for 30 minutes to firm it up.

Beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and peanut butter until well mixed. Fold in the Cool Whip and half of the frozen Reese’s cups.

Pour this into the pan and refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm. Remove from the springform pan and top with the remaining Reese’s. Drizzle chocolate syrup on top if desired.

Don’t you think you need this for the weekend? I’m pretty sure you do. 😉

  1. Yep, I’m gonna need this! Told my cook that I’m in charge of the kitchen this weekend, so she’d back off. Otherwise I won’t have enough Oreos for the pie!

    1. That is definitely a hazard when buying a package of Oreos. Maybe Lisa S. has it right after all – buy them pre-crushed and then there is no sneaking of cookies beforehand!

  2. Sounds very good! Sheri, did you know you can buy the Oreo crust already mashed up in a box? It’s i the baking aisle. Not that I have used it or anything……. :).

    1. But, um, how do you sneak a couple of Oreos to go along with your coffee if you buy them already crushed up? (Not that I have done that or anything ….)

  3. OMG!!! That looks so delicious. I’m definitely heading out to get the ingredients for this one. Thanks for sharing all your yummy recipes Sheri.
    Congratulations to my fellow rhino for her cute little hippo!!
