Who loves pumpkin everything? I mean, I don’t love pumpkin everything, but I do love most edible pumpkin treats. My family likes pumpkin pie, but sometimes we get tired of pumpkin pie and want to try something else equally tasty. This Instant Pot Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake is perfect for your fall gatherings and cozy evenings.
The truth is, Instant Pot cheesecakes turn out so incredibly well. Pressure cooking is the perfect way to make cheesecake. When you are ready for Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake, use your IP for the best result. You will need a cheesecake pan that fits down into your pressure cooker with room around it for pressure to build. Start by lining your pan and pressing the cookie crust into that pan.
After the crust is in the pan, mix your pumpkin cheesecake filling and place that in the pan as well. The key to making this Instant Pot Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake is the Greek yogurt which adds so much depth of flavor!
After you have everything mixed and ready to go, you will need to get the IP ready by filling it with water to the 2″ mark. Add the trivet that came with your Instant Pot next, and then lower the springform pan down in. Follow the cooking times shown below, and refrigerate overnight for the best flavor and texture. Drizzle with caramel syrup before serving. The result is this stunning and decadent Instant Pot Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake.
