No-Bake Peanut Butter Oreo Cheesecake

Bake or no-bake?

Peanut butter oreo cookies

I can't believe I survived without having an oven for 9 whole months! And FYI, I'm still ovenless. I was cracking my head thinking of what to bring to a friend's BBQ party when he requested a dessert. I suggested potato salad or marinated meat but he insisted on a dessert. Ice-cream? It won't survive the heat. Jelly? Not my thing. Trifle? Too much cream and too much work. So, I settled for a classic no-bake cheesecake. Boring, I know. But I came across these peanut butter oreos that I just couldn't resist while doing my grocery shopping. So instead of plain old boring classic cheesecake, I came up with this peanut butter oreo cheesecake. I added more peanut butter into crust and it was so yummy!!
