Ingredients

  • Ingredients for Crust:
  • 9 full size graham crackers (one sleeve)
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • Ingredients for Filling:
  • 12 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (plus 2 tablespoons for topping)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 and line a square baking pan with aluminum foil.
  • Use a food processor to finely crush graham crackers. Add sugar and butter and process for 10 seconds until coated well. Pour into prepared pan.
  • Evenly press crust into pan with the back of a spoon. Refrigerate.
  • Now for the filling!
  • Beat cream cheese in a bowl. Add sugar, half and half, vanilla, egg and 1/2 cup peanut butter. Beat well until smooth.
  • Remove crust from refrigerator and pour filling into crust. Smooth with the back of a spoon.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until center is no longer jiggly. Cool to room temperature and return, covered, to the refrigerator. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Remove bars from pan by lifting up on foil and removing foil and bars in one movement. Place onto a cutting board and carefully remove foil and discard.
  • Cut bars into 16 squares.
  • Microwave 2 tablespoons of peanut butter for 60 seconds on 50% power, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth and liquidy. Drizzle with a spoon over cut bars and return to the refrigerator until peanut butter sets up.
  • Makes 16 bars.

Notes

Cheesecake goes to an entirely new level when you add creamy peanut butter and drizzle even more on top!
