How to Make an Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake in the Pressure Cooker

Set oven to 375 degrees and use Pam to evenly spray a 7-inch springform pan.

To make the crust

Put the cookies into a bag and use a rolling pin or heavy object to crush them into fine crumbs.

Add the butter to the bag and combine until wet sand forms.

Use your fingers to press the crust into the bottom of the prepared pan and 1/2 way up the edges.

Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Take out of the oven and set aside.

 To make the filling

Whilst the crust is baking,

Add the cream cheese into a mixing bowl and use a hand mixer to whisk until smooth and creamy.

Then, put in the sugar, cinnamon, and flour and mix until combined.

One at a time, add in the eggs and whisk. Do not whisk too much or air bubbles will form.

Add in the sour cream and vanilla and use a spatula mix in.

Pour into the crust. Tap the sides to remove any air bubbles. Then, cover with foil.

Use a measuring cup and one cup of water to the bottom of the IP and set the trivet up inside and put the cheesecake on top.

Seal the lid and switch the valve to the sealing position.

Put on high pressure and cook for 40 minutes.

Let the pressure release for 20 minutes and then hurry to release the rest of the pressure.

Take out the cheesecake and let it cool on a wire rack for 45 minutes. Use a paper towel to catch excess moisture on top of the cheesecake.

The use cling form to cover the cheesecake and place in the fridge for a least 6 hours, or overnight.
