  • Ingredients:
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Flour
  • 6 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 3/4 cup Graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 ½ tbsp Butter
  • 16 oz Cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup Sour cream


  • Crust
  • Preheat oven to 300.
  • In a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar.  
  • Stir in butter until well combined.  
  • Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 7 inch springform pan.  
  • Bake for 10 minutes.  Set aside.
  • Cheesecake
  • Cream together the cream cheese and sugar using either a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer.  
  • Add sour cream and eggs.  Mix well.
  • Add in the vanilla and flour.  Mix just until combined. Do not over mix.  
  • Pour mixture over prepared crust.
  • Place 1 C water into the instant pot .  Place steam rack into pot.
  • Use the manual setting and set the timer to 33 minutes.  After the time is up, allow the Instant Pot to use a natural release.  Once all of the steam has been released, carefully remove cheesecake from Instant Pot, using either tongs.  This is the trickiest part of the process!
  • Place cheesecake on cooling rack.
  • Using paper towels, absorb any excess water on top of the cheesecake.  
  • Allow to fully cool and then place in the refrigerator overnight to fully cool and set.  
  • Top with desired toppings and serve.


It is important to allow to fully cool so it can set properly.
