Directions

    1. Crust: Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Toss crumbs with sugar and butter until well combined. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch (2.5 L) springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden around the edges and fragrant; cool slightly.

    2. Cheesecake: Increase oven temperature to 450°F (230°C). Beat cream cheese with sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Place peanut butter chips and milk in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) for 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave for an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval, just until chips are melted when stirred.

    3. Add peanut butter mixture to cream cheese mixture; beating just until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition; stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over prepared crust. Bake for 10 minutes.

    4. Reduce oven temperature to 250°F (120°C); continue baking for 40 minutes or until set. (Centre will be soft but will set upon cooling.) Transfer from oven rack to wire rack. Run a thin knife around the cake to loosen from side of pan. Cool completely; remove ring from pan.
