Certainly, today is a very special day as we are going to make the first cake in our Instant Pot – New York Cheesecake. Above all, this is an easy and no-bake cheesecake recipe. As usual, all the ingredients are surprisingly simple and preparation time is less than 1 hour.  The soft cheese, cookies and a pressure cooker device called Instant Pot will make this delicious, light, creamy and smooth cheesecake. No doubt, this Instant Pot recipe will become your magic wand.

As always, there are some hints that might help you to obtain the best results in making an Instant Pot New York Cheesecake that melts in your mouth. Certainly, we want to share with you a couple of useful tips to make this recipe.

Firstly, select cookies that you like for the crust. I know, many people will go with the traditional Graham crackers but we experimented a lot and our choice was different – cookies called Maria. Probably they are not as popular as Graham crackers but in our opinion they fit much better for this recipe as they combine tender and crust features in a very unique way. Certainly, don’t be afraid to experiment as there is no right or wrong in the kitchen. If you used a different ingredient you will end up with a new taste.

Secondly, keep the cheesecake in the refrigerator overnight. Be patient, so your cake will be frozen and be shaped perfectly.

As always, we share with you only the recipes that are tested many times and passed rigorous quality control through our kitchen. Overall, the busy time creates new challenges for busy families and we want to help you save some time with Instant Pot for your loved ones but still enjoy delicious and healthy food made in Pressure Cooker.
