Then mix in the eggs one at a time. Mix in the vanilla extract and sour cream until smooth. 

Add in seasonings. Pour into pan on top of the graham cracker crust. 

You’ll also need to create a “foil sling” by folding along a piece of foil in half lengthwise two times. This “sling” is a trick I learned from my cousin, and it will allow you to place and remove the springform pan with ease.

This Instant Pot Cheesecake cooks for 35 minutes on the manual setting and will require a 10-minute natural pressure release, followed by a quick release to remove any additional pressure.

Top with apple slices pressed down into the cheesecake.

Once you remove your cheesecake from the Instant Pot, you’ll cool it to room temp for a bit and then refrigerate it for at least 8 hours.

Whether you’re test driving desserts in your Instant Pot for the first time, or whipping up a sweet treat for the weekend, I hope you enjoy this Instant Pot Apple Cheesecake as much we do!

Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and nutmeg. 

Cool on the counter for an hour and then put in the refrigerator and cool for an additional 4 hours.

Thrill cheesecake and apple cake lovers alike with this glorious fall dessert.

Making an Instant Pot Cheesecake is just like making a regular cheesecake until you get to the cooking part.  

To be honest, I think Instant Pot Cheesecake is actually easier because you don’t have to deal with a water bath because the Instant Pot creates a water bath for you.
