    Arrange cookie dough in bottom of pan; press with fingers to spread dough in bottom and up sides. Refrigerate 5 to 10 minutes.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in bowl of stand mixer with paddle attachment, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar and cream on low to medium speed until creamed and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition until well combined. With spatula, scrape sides of bowl. Stir in vanilla.
  • 4
    Pour cream cheese filling over chilled crust; smooth top until even. Spoon jelly in a few places over filling. With wooden skewer, make swirls to spread jelly.

    Bake about 40 minutes or until cheesecake is just set in center. Cool completely in pan on cooling rack, about 1 hour. Refrigerate 4 to 5 hours before cutting in 6 rows by 3 rows.

Expert Tips

To easily cut the bars, lift the entire cheesecake out of the pan by grabbing the parchment paper by its sides and place it on a working area. With a sharp knife, cut the entire cheesecake into 18 bars.

For a crunchy texture, add 2 to 4 tablespoons of coarsely chopped peanuts to the cheesecake filling.
