The recipe on the Peanut Butter Treasures package does not say what temperature to bake the cheesecake at or what size of pan to use. My cheesecake was overcooked because of this. It turned out to be a very expensive mistake.

    Outstanding and very easy

    Lena Steele from MATAMORAS, PA

    I made this cheesecake for a dinner party. It was easy and the taste was decadent. I find what makes any recipe easy is to have all the items prepared in advance such as the cookies crumbled and everything set out. Thanks to whomever submitted this recipe. It received rave reviews from everyone. They thought I was a master baker

    Thanksgiving Dessert

    KARI STROSCHEIN from Fowlerville, MI

    I made this cheesecake for Thanksgiving and everyone that tried a piece loved it! It was very rich and a little bit went a long way! I added 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter to the cream cheese mixture to make it extra peanut-buttery! Next time I will try a different crust because I didn't like how the chocolate wafers tasted stale after baking. Overall this receipe was wonderful, easy to make and a big hit at my holiday dinner!

    ROBERTA CAMPBELL from CARTHAGE, NC

    I made this for a friend who loves peanut butter. She hasn't been feeling well for the past couple of months. She tried this Cheesecake and fell in love with. When I left her house she and her husband were having a very long discussion over who was having the last piece. I will be make this one again for Thanksgiving Holiday.

    laura Johnson from Racine, WI

    This is by far the easiest cheesecake I have ever made, and it turned out great. I melted chocolate and swirled it over the top, and put some extra candy pieces on top and it looked like I bought it at a bakery. Fabulous!
