Equipment

  • Cake molds or jars
  • Hand or stand mixer
  • Mixing bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup nilla wafers crushed
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 7 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter or more if you love peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 lb cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup jam or strawberry preserves

Instructions

To make the crust:

  • In a medium bowl, toss the nilla wafer crumbs with sugar.
  • Add in the peanut butter and melted butter.
  • Mix until combined.
  • Firmly press the crust mixture into a mold or jar. Set aside.

To make the cheesecake:

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream with a hand mixer/stand mixer (or even by hand) until medium peaks form.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the cream cheese, sugar, salt, vanilla extract, and lemon juice to a bowl and beat until smooth.
  • Add cream cheese to heavy whipping cream until they are well blended.
  • Stir in the jam. 
  • Top off the molds/jars with the cheesecake filling. Refrigerate at least 5 hours. The longer the better! 

Notes

  • Makes about 2-2/12 dozen cheesecakes, depending on the size of your mold, jar or liner.
