Blind Baking

I always blind bake my crust for cheesecakes because I prefer a bit more crunch when eating it.  You can completely skip this step if you don’t mind a softer crust for your cheesecake.  If you do choose to blind bake the crust, it’s really simple.  You just pop it in the oven for 15 minutes and you’ll have a firmer crust.  That’s it!

Mixed Berry Cheesecake

This Instant Pot Mixed Berry Cheesecake is so simple to make!  It’s made with all natural flavors and colors – that means there are no dyes!

It has a vanilla sandwich cookie crust that gives the crust a light but flavorful taste.  You can use graham crackers or any other crust that you would prefer, just make sure you grind enough to fill the bottom of your cheesecake pan and enough to line the sides.

Raspberry and Blueberry Sauces

In this recipe, I made a raspberry sauce and a blueberry sauce for the layers of the cheesecake.  To do this, I used a sieve after cooking down the berries to release all of the natural juices.  The sieve is great when trying to remove seeds from fruits, it also works great when removing juice from the flesh of blueberries!

Accessories Needed To Make the Instant Pot Cheesecake

7-Inch Pan Vs. 8-Inch Pan

What if you have an 8 qt. Instant Pot?  You can still make this cheesecake with the 7-inch pan or if you would prefer you can make this recipe in an 8-inch pan.  The amount of ingredients (for the 7″) will make a slightly shorter cheesecake but it will still taste the same.  If you are making the cheesecake in the 8-inch pan, you will have to adjust the time by 5 minutes.

  12. Combine finely crushed vanilla cookies and 1/8 tsp salt.
  13. Melt the 4 tbsp of butter and mix in the cookie mixture.
  14. Line bottom and sides of 7" springform pan with parchment paper. You can also spray the bottom and sides of the pan well with nonstick spray.

  16. Bake the crust in the oven for 15 minutes.

  30. Allow the Instant Pot to Natural Release for 18 minutes before removing the lid.

  32. Allow the cheesecake to sit on the counter for 10 minutes before moving the cheesecake to chill in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  33. Once cheesecake is chilled, it is safe to remove the cheesecake from the pan.
