Peanut Butter Cheesecake with Oreo Crust

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CRUST:
  • 1 cup Oreo Cookie Crumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, melted
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  • ¼ cups Smooth Peanut Butter
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 2 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
  • ½ Tablespoons Vanilla Extract
  • FOR THE TOPPING:
  • 3-⅝ ounces, weight Dark Chocolate, Chopped Into Small Pieces
  • ¼ cups Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup Crumbled Leftover Candies (e.g. Reese’s, KitKat, Coffee Crisp)

Preparation

Preheat oven at 350 F. Grease a 7-inch springform pan.

Make the crust by mixing all the crust ingredients together in a food processor or in a bowl with a fork.

Press the mixture onto the bottom of the spring form pan. Bake crust for 5 minutes. Then remove it from the oven and set aside to cool. Turn down oven temperature to 250 F.

To prepare filling, beat the cream cheese and peanut butter on medium speed until smooth in a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Add brown sugar and beat to combine. Then add egg, heavy cream and vanilla extract, mix for 2 minutes or until well blended.

Pour the filling over the cooled crust. Tap the pan on the counter a few times to release all the air in the batter. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the edge of the cheesecake is puffed but the center is still wobbly and wet looking.

Then turn off the oven with the door slightly opened, let the cheesecake sit in the oven to cool completely for at least an hour. Then put it into the refrigerator to chill for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight.

Before serving, leave the cake at room temperature for 30 minutes.

For the topping, place the chocolate and heavy cream in a medium heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water (or you can use a double boiler if you have one). Stir the mixture using a wooden spoon until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes.

Pour the ganache on top of the cake. Working quickly, spread the ganache with a large metal spatula or knife, using big strokes to push the ganache over the sides of the cake.

Sprinkle candy crumbles on top as garnish.
