RECIPE BACKSTORY
A big craving of mine is oreos and peanut butter... So, I came up with the idea of turning these two into a cheesecake! The bottom crust could be whichever you like. I prefer Oreo to go with the rest of the cheesecake, but it's up to you! The first layer is a regular cheesecake base; followed by a thin crust of smashed oreos; then a top layer of peanut butter cheesecake. With the addition of crumbled oreos or graham crackers (depending on your crust) as garnish, and chocolate drizzle. Scrumptious!
