by Pierce Abernathy

Ingredients

for 8 servings

  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 10 graham crackers
  • 24 oz (675 g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup (160 g) powdered sugar
  • 1 cup (240 g) creamy peanut butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 banana, sliced thin

Caramel Sauce

  • ¾ cup (165 g) brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup (120 mL) half & half
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preparation

  1. Place graham crackers into a plastic bag and crush them into fine crumbs with a rolling pin.
  2. Pour the graham cracker crumbs into a bowl and combine with melted butter, mixing until the texture is like slightly wet sand.
  3. Press the graham cracker crumbs in an even layer into the bottom of a 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan. Refrigerate.
  4. In a large bowl, combine softened cream cheese, vanilla, powdered sugar, and peanut butter until well mixed.
  5. Add the cream cheese mixture to the springform pan and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  6. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine butter, brown sugar, half & half, and cinnamon. Stir until mixture darkens and sugar dissolves into the mixture.
  7. Lower the heat to medium-low and add the bananas to the saucepan and sauté in the sauce for 1-2 minutes on each side. Take off heat and let rest for 10 minutes.
  8. Decorate the top of the cheesecake with banana slices and pour over remaining caramel sauce. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
  9. Slice and garnish with chocolate or caramel syrup.
