  • Crush the graham crackers, using a Ziploc bag and a rolling pin.
  • Mix the graham crackers together with the 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 the softened cream cheese, sugar, and brown sugar with a mixer. 
  • Add the vanilla and almond extract, mixing well. 
  • Add 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk to the mixture. 
  • Add pumpkin puree, along with sour cream, mixing well. 
  • Mix in the spices, including the 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, allow it to cool completely.
  • Then cover the cheesecake and place it in the fridge to chill for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
  • Slice and serve. I suggest serving it with a li'l whipped cream on top.


*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 this recipe; just add a few more graham crackers and a little more butter to the crust mixture.
