Reece's Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake
Crust - I used a package of Girl Scout peanut butter sandwich cookies (Do-Si-Dos).
I crushed them and patted them in the bottom of a cheesecake pan. You can also do the
traditional graham cracker crust.
3 8oz packages of cream cheese
1 can condensed milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1 bag Reece's Peanut Butter Cups - or use regular size and cut them in bite size pieces
1 tsp. flour
In large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add condensed milk; beat until smooth.
Add eggs and vanilla mix well. In small bowl, toss peanut butter cups with flour (this keeps
them from sinking to bottom), stir into cheesemixture. Pour over crust in pan, bake
1 hour at 300 degrees or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool
to room temperature, Chill, remove sides.
