    This was very good but you really have to LOVE peanut butter in order to be in love with this cheesecake. The taste kinda reminds me of peanut butter cookies and I don't think I was anticipating such a strong peanut butter taste. I followed the recipe exact except for the crust, I didn't have sugar cookies so a I made a chocolate graham cracker crust. Although it was tasty, it was a bit too rich for my taste. I probably won't be making this again but just because I'm not too big on peanut butter not because it wasn't tasty. I'm sure this would be delicious to a peanut butter lover.
