Mom's (in)Famous Cheesecake

One of my favorite things in the world is baking with my mom. When I was little, she would sit my sister and I down and tell us stories about her growing up in kitchens and learning from great people.

One of the things I love doing is taking recipes my mom has passed down and making them more my own in a small way, like the first time I recently made Peanut Butter Cheesecake. My boyfriend just celebrated a big milestone and this was his one dessert request!

However, we had never changed mom’s recipe before and it’s a family secret (not giving this one away, I would be disowned if I spilled the beans πŸ™Š) , so I will link a recipe I used as a reference for how much peanut butter to use here (we actually cut it down to 3/4 cup):

Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Servings: 1 big cheesecake (using spring-form pan) or 20-24 cupcake sized versions

Prep Time: 10-30 mins.

Cooking Time: 15 mins- 1 hour, plus 30 mins to let cheesecake cool down after oven is turned off
