      Cheesecake needs to be baked at a low temperature so it doesn't crack and stays nice and creamy!

    these look GREAT!!

    I recently made Oreo Cheesecakes (Which have a lot of traffic as well) – but I love this Peanut Butter Cup version (and I think My Mom will get a kick out of these too!!!)

    These look delicious! I was just wondering if you made these in a non stick pan, if not should I lower the temperature? Thanks in advance!

      I think I used a regular pan but I wouldn’t lower the temperature if you used a nonstick pan. The recipe should work fine with either pan!

    Going to make these this week! Would using vanilla yogurt ruin the recipe? Just making sure before I make the treats with what I have on-hand.

      You could use vanilla yogurt but just be mindful that most flavored yogurts are full of sugar so you may want to reduce the sugar slightly, especially since the sour cream/plain yogurt would have added a tangy flavor.

    Going to try making these I do the Oreo ones all the time!! Should the Reece’s be frozen first?
