If you’re a peanut butter lover, this is the cheesecake for you! It’s ultra rich and creamy with the most lovely peanut butter flavor. As a child I couldn’t wait to get home from school and unwind with some Nutter Butter Cookies. Now, I loved Oreos too, but the salty sweet combo of the Nutter Butter—especially when dunked in milk—that’s a huge part of my after school bliss. As time goes by, and I have kids of my own, I’ve been thinking of those classic childhood flavor combos that really hold a timeless spot in my heart.
I wanted to create a “grown up” version of my childhood. Those ridges in the cookie shell of the Nutter Butter spoke to the young me so much I decided to make them the crust of a decadent peanut butter cheesecake. I must say, this cheesecake is perfection. The rich cream cheese and peanut butter combination are exactly what I’ve been looking for. Join me in a resurrection of a childhood classic refined perfectly to give you a taste of something completely new—yet familiar.

If you use your Instant Pot on the counter under your cabinets, this is an awesome accessory that diverts the steam downward and away from your cabinets (purchase here)
