Easy Instant Pot Cheesecake Recipe

  • Author: Michelle - Powered by Mom



  • 15 double stuffed Oreos


  • 2 packs room temp cream cheese (Philadelphia is best)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 6 tbsp sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 oz melted premium white chocolate


  • ½ cup fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water


  • Prepare your crust by placing your Oreos into a food processor and blend until they form crumbs.
  • Place your Oreos in a greased 6” springform pan, and pack down with your hand or a measuring cup.
  • Place in the freezer until the filling is ready.
  • To make your filling, start with all room temp ingredients. Place your cream cheese into a large mixing bowl and mix on high until light and fluffy.
  • Add in your sugar and mix until just combined.
  • Add in sour cream and mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  • Add in the cooled melted chocolate mix until combined.
  • Last, add in your eggs, you want to make these the very last thing you mix in and mix as LITTLE as possible. Add your eggs one at a time and mix just enough so that they are fully incorporated.
  • Pour your filling into your prepared crust and cover the top of your pan with tin foil. If you would like to take it a step further, you can cover the bottom of the pan as well.
  • Prepare your instant pot with one cup of water and place your trivet in the bottom of your pot.

TIP: Make a sling by tearing a piece of aluminium foil, and folding in making a long strip, and place that on your trivet. This will make it easier to remove your pan afterwards!

  • Place your pan in your pot, and place the lid on, and make sure it is sealed.
  • Place on high pressure for 35 minutes.
  • Allow to naturally release. When you can open the lid, remove cheesecake and allow to cool on a cooling rack, then place in the fridge overnight.
  • To prepare your topping, make a syrup by placing half a cup of sugar and half cup water into a small saucepan. Heat until the sugar is dissolved. Set to the side for about 5 minutes and then add in your cranberries. I allow them to sit overnight while the cheesecake sets.
  • After your cheesecake and cranberries have set, drain your cranberries and place into a clean bowl and add in the additional ½ cup sugar and mix the berries until coated. Add on top of the cheesecake and serve!
