No Bake Frozen Peanut Butter Cheese Cake Recipe – Delicious dessert made with cream cheese and peanut butter on a buttery biscuit base.
I feel that something’s been lacking around these parts lately. Yes my friends, another whopping cheesecake recipe. Because, once you find a dessert that’s super easy, no bake, a crowd pleaser and oh yes, bloomin’ delicious – you know you’re onto a winner.
A Frozen Cheesecake and a Peanut Butter Cheesecake were inevitable at some point. Frozen cheesecakes are a little more stable, without using gelatine (so suitable for vegetarians) and are a brilliant way of keeping a dessert ready and prepared in advance for a special dinner or meal. And peanut butter? As far as I am concerned, there can never be enough peanut butter in the world, so, this is a beautiful marriage.
Watch how to make the Frozen Peanut Butter Cheese:
I made this cheesecake almost completely with ingredients from the essential Waitrose range. The essential Waitrose range, is a range of products which provide the quality you’d expect from Waitrose at prices you perhaps wouldn’t.
In this recipe I used essential Waitrose Gingernut biscuits, unsalted butter, cream cheese and of course peanut butter, amongst others. I was so impressed by the quality of everything we used. The roasted, salted peanuts for example were fantastic quality and absolutely delicious.
Even better news is that Waitrose have recently lowered hundreds of prices across the essential Waitrose range, whilst keeping the quality that you would expect from Waitrose. I’ll definitely be adding more of the white packaging to my basket in future.
Tips for making the Frozen Peanut Butter Cheesecake:
- Do not refreeze the cheesecake after it’s been brought to room temperature. You can store it in the fridge for a day or two, it will just be much softer than the ideal temperature.
- Do sift the icing sugar, it helps to give the smooth consistency.
- Use a tin with either a springform (the type where the side unclips) or a removable base.
- Warm a sharp, thin knife under a hot tap and then dry it. Use this to run around the outside of the cake, inside the tin, before removing. Remove the knife and wipe it as you work your way around the cake.
- The recipe is for a 7″ DEEP tin (not a standard sandwich cake tin, it will overflow! See the link below for the type of tin I use). You can use smaller or larger but your cheesecake will obviously be taller or shorter. I would DEFINITELY recommend this tin though as it is a great size and very easy to use.
