Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 200 g Digestive Biscuits
  • 100 g Butter Unsalted and melted

For the filling:

  • 500 g Cream Cheese
  • 200 g Peanut Butter
  • 200 g Sugar Granulated
  • 4 Eggs
  • 200 g Sour Cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

For the peanut butter sauce:

  • 100 g Peanut Butter
  • 50 g Icing Sugar
  • 50 ml Milk

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Using a food processor, crush the digestive biscuits until they form fine crumbs. Combine the melted butter with the crumbs and mix thoroughly until the mixture resembles wet sand.
  • Press the biscuit mixture evenly into the base of a 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan to create the crust. Place the pan in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, and granulated sugar until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency.
  • Gradually add the eggs, one at a time, and beat well after each addition. Remember to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Incorporate the sour cream and vanilla extract into the mixture until well combined.
  • Pour the filling over the prepared crust in the springform pan, using a spatula to smooth the top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes or until the edges are set and the centre is slightly jiggly.
  • Turn off the oven and allow the cheesecake to remain inside for an additional 30 minutes with the oven door slightly ajar.
  • Take the cheesecake out of the oven and let it cool completely at room temperature.
  • During the cooling process, prepare the peanut butter sauce. Melt the peanut butter in a small saucepan over low heat, and then stir in the powdered sugar and milk until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  • Once the cheesecake has cooled, gently remove it from the springform pan. Drizzle the peanut butter sauce over the top of the cheesecake.
  • Place the cheesecake in the refrigerator and allow it to chill for at least 2 hours or overnight before serving.
