What a week…what. a. week! Welcome back, Friday!

First of all, what is going on with this weather?! I know I keep talking about it, but last week I was sweating like a pig, and this week I am searching for my sweaters! Mr. Gore, are you messing with me again?!

Let’s just stick to talking about food, shall we?

Today I am going to solve all our problems with peanut butter. In fact, we really need to talk about these Saltines Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake Sandwiches. No. It can’t wait.

I stand here before you with a big smile on my face – it stretches from ear to ear! That is how EXCITED I am about these Cheesecake Sandwiches. They are crunchy, silky, peanut buttery, sweet and salty. In one word – FAB!

You see, I’m in the middle of a PB & J love affair. 15 years and counting…

However, one of my all-time faaaaavorite snacks is peanut butter and jelly with saltine crackers. Fave!!! Thus, this dessert was a no-brainer for me.

Truth – I have finished an entire jar of PB in one sitting by spreading it on cracker after cracker… Self control does not live in these parts.

Truth #2 – I made a large batch of these sandwiches a while back and not one was left for me to possibly photograph. Or just enjoy one more… We tore ’em up! There was saltine crumbs everywhere. I hated the cleanup afterwards. BUT, it was damn worth it.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Just IN case you do, here it is:

Warning! Do not make these unless you are prepared to tear ’em up! This is the kind of dessert that you eat without realizing that you just finished your fifth samwich. Aaaaand you’re ready to dig into the sixth. Of course you would have to be a fan of all components to do that; Peanut Butter, Jelly, Cheesecake, and Saltines. Or soda crackers. I love them all. Equally.

    I am in Australia – what is whipped topping? I was thinking maybe cream but wasn’t sure. Thanks Angela

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Yes, it’s whipped cream. πŸ™‚ Here we call it whipped topping when we refer to the store-bought ready whipped cream. If you want, go here and get my recipe for homemade whipped cream. Thank you!!!

    Another peanut butter and cracker lover!! In college I lived on PB and saltines. So with that said, I would probably eat all of these PB&J sandwiches in one sitting as well. These would make a great lunch! Thanks for sharing this fabulous treat!

  3. Ashley - Baker by Nature

    Oh my goodness… I would eat these non-stop if I could! The perfect way to use up all the saltines I have in the pantry πŸ˜‰

  4. Nami | Just One Cookbook

    Haha! I love your “P.S. No baking involved.” comment at the end. I became even more tempted to make with that line. πŸ˜‰ This will be a great snack for my family!

    What is up with this manic weather? I could use these adorbs pb & j sandwiches to help sort out my confused head. πŸ˜€

    You can find me tonight in front of tv with these–period! You are so bad…you make me crave them now! LOVE your mouthwatering pictures!

  7. kirsten@FarmFreshFeasts

    This looks heavenly–just the thing for my daughter to make. Even though it’s cool enough to turn the oven on this week, August still awaits me, so I’m glad for a sweet cool treat.

  8. Sandra

    This is wrong on so many levels but in a good way of course. Way too easy to go off the deep end with these. Well at least I won’t be alone in my addiction.

  9. Denise Browning@From Brazil To You

    So yum! We have a very popular snack in Brazil that resembles this one… We love to eat cheese with guava paste together (we call the combination Romeo and Juliet) — with or without crackers. So I think this is your version of Romeo and Juliet, isn’t it?! Have a great weekend, Kate! xx

  10. Jennifer @ Peranut Butter and Peppers
