Seems like it won't get baked at 250. I'd lower your temp to 325 and check the cake after 30 min

Here's the recipe: RECIPE INGREDIENTS CRUST 1 1/4 cups flour 1/4 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp table salt 1/2 Cup butter (1 stick), salted 1 cup packed dark brown sugar 1/2 cup peanut butter 1 egg 1 tsp vanilla extract FILLING 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened 1 cup brown sugar firmly packed 1/3 cup peanut butter 3 Tbs all-purpose flour 4 eggs 1/2 cup milk CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE 1/4 cup heavy (whipping) cream 4 ounces Good Quality Bittersweet Chocolate 1/2-1 cup peanuts to sprinkle on top Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars Recipe at Cooking.com DIRECTIONS CRUST 1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 2. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl. 3 Mix butter until creamy, then add brown sugar beating until fluffy. Add peanut butter and mix, then add the egg and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix. 4. Place dough into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking pan, flattening to cover the entire surface. 5. Bake for approximately 10 minutes until firm, but not fully baked. FILLING 1 While the crust is baking, mix cream cheese, brown sugar, peanut butter and flour together until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, then milk mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared crust. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, then turn the temperature to 250 and bake for 35- 40 minutes longer. The top should be firm but not brown, with a little jiggle in the center (not much though). Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

How long will it back for at 250? That seems like an odd temp. I've checked a variety of PB cheesecake recipes. They all bake at either 350 or 325. Maybe your recipe has a typo

Hi, Crickett -- did you have a question about the cheesecake baking time and temperature?
