What's Cookin!


Hi there friends! If you like pumpkin pie, and you like cheesecake, you will LOVE this recipe. Today I am sharing how to make Pumpkin cheesecake in the Instant Pot. Best news of the day is our Insta-Pan is back in stock! YAHOO…I certainly did not plan on selling out in 3 weeks after it hit the Amazon warehouse. We should be stocked for a while now (I hope)

Find the Insta-Pan HERE

I absolutely love making cheesecake in the Instant Pot. To me they not only look like a real pro made them, the taste is equally magnificent.

This time of year is all about pumpkin and spice and everything nice.

My fall menu is well under way! I have already checked off the list Apple Beef Stew. You can find the Apple Beef stew recipe HERE

My initial plan was to make this pumpkin cheesecake with a ginger snap crust. I shopped at Aldi today for all the ingredients and they did not have ginger snaps yet. I improvised and used a vanilla wafer cookie instead. No regrets, the crust was delicious.

There is always something new I learn along the way. Next time I would lightly cover this cheesecake with a foil on top. I think because of the pumpkin it retained a little more water on top than usual. Nothing a paper towel did not blot out though.

This cheesecake tasted, light and had the texture of a light fluffy pillow. It almost tasted calorie free. It clearly is NOT.

Enjoy. From here on out I plan on including a recipe sized print out card in my recipes. Home pressure cooking will be adding a custom recipe box to our line very soon. It will come with some starter Pressure cooking recipes. You will be able to add to the box via my recipes I share here, and more I plan on creating.

These are a few boxes I have in mind. I am in the process of having them made now so I can test them for quality and use.

One box has a vintage appeal, while the other is more practical and universal. I am so undecided. I just may have to add both to my line! I recommend printing these on high quality white cardstock for best results. For a 4 x 6 recipe card, cut just inside the black line that frames each card. The resolution will be crisp and clear when printing.
