How to make Instant Pot Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake. Delicious fall and holiday dessert recipe with a buttery graham cracker crust.

Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake is one of those “to die for” desserts… Dessert that makes the taste buds tingle and satisfies those cravings for creamy delicious cheesecake.

I am a cheesecake fangirl. If I get to choose a dessert when we’re out to eat and cheesecake is on the menu, you can bet I’m ordering cheesecake. My favorite is white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, and I love strawberry swirl cheesecake too.

When you add pumpkin spice and all the flavors of fall to my favorite dessert… Well, I may just swoon.

When I first tried creating this recipe, my first attempt was somewhat of a fail. It turned out more like pumpkin spice pudding than pumpkin spice cheesecake. But I didn’t give up, and my second attempt won.

Perfect for the Thanksgiving dessert table, Instant Pot Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake is oh so delicious. So creamy and super easy to make!

The fact that it’s made in the Instant Pot just adds an element of fun to the recipe. I LOVE cooking with my Instant Pot because the possibilities are truly endless.

Tips for Making Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake in the Instant Pot

This recipe creates enough filling for 2 smaller cheesecakes. If you have a larger Instant Pot (ours is smaller, a 6-quart), you could make 1 larger cheesecake with a larger graham cracker crust with this recipe.

  • Crush the graham crackers, using a Ziploc bag and a rolling pin.
  • Mix the graham crackers together with melted butter.
  • Spray your springform pan with cooking spray; then press the mixture into the pan. Place in the freezer ’til you’re ready to add the filling.
  • Mix together softened cream cheese, sugar, and brown sugar with a mixer.
  • Add vanilla and almond extract, mixing well.
  • Crack 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk into the mixture.
  • Add pumpkin puree, along with sour cream, mixing well.
  • Mix in spices, including cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg.
  • Finally, mix in a tablespoon of flour and the salt.
  • Pour the cheesecake filling into your crust.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups water to the bottom of your pressure cooker.
  • Cover the cheesecake pan with foil, and place the pan inside your Instant Pot.
  • Set to Manual and cook for 30 minutes.
  • When the Instant Pot is done and it’s naturally released, remove the cheesecake, keep covered, and place in the fridge for a few hours (or even overnight). Let it chill thoroughly.
  • Then it’s ready to serve. I suggest serving it with a li’l whipped cream.
