FILLING

·         24 ounces (678g) cream cheese, room temperature
·         1 cup (207g) sugar
·         3 tbsp (24g) all-purpose flour
·         3/4 cup (173g) sour cream, room temperature

CHOCOLATE GANACHE

PEANUT BUTTER WHIPPED CREAM

·         3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
·         1/2 cup (58g) powdered sugar
·         2 tbsp (35g) peanut butter
·         1/4 tsp vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS

CRUST

1. Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Line a 9-inch (23cm) springform pan with parchment paper in the bottom and grease the sides.
2. Combine the crust ingredients in a small bowl. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the springform pan.
3. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
4. Cover the outsides of the pan with aluminum foil so that water from the water bath cannot get in (see how I prepare a pan for a water bath). Set prepared pan aside.

CHEESECAKE

1.Reduce oven temperature to 300°F (148°C).
2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and flour on low speed until well completely combined and smooth. Be sure to use low speed to reduce the amount of air added to the batter, which can cause cracks. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
3. Add the sour cream, peanut butter, and vanilla extract and mix on low speed until well combined.
4. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing slowly to combine after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to make sure everything is well combined.
