Will Mini Cheesecakes Freeze Well

Personally, I haven’t tried this. We eat cheesecakes so fast that I don’t have time to freeze it. The downfall with dairy being frozen is it can separate. You could try freezing one but it could very well ruin the texture.

Can I Swap Out The Toppings

Yes. This is a recipe for a Snickers cheesecake but if you don’t like one of the toppings you can leave it off or swap it out.

Do I Need A Water Bath For Cheesecake

For this recipe, you put water in your Instant Pot to help it pressure up and cook and it acts as a water bath for your cheesecake.

Most homemade cheesecake recipes do require a water bath when it comes to cheesecake.

Why Did My Cheesecake Crack on The Top

Over Mixing your cheesecake can cause cracking. Just remember to lightly incorporate ingredients.

Also, don’t worry because with all the toppings I put on no one has to know there is a crack or two!

How Long Should Cheesecake Cool Before Going in Fridge

Once you finish baking your cheesecake, remove it from Instant Pot and place it on a wire rack. Allow your cheesecake to fully cool. You can touch the top of the cheesecake to feel the temperature. Since these are mini cheesecakes they cool faster than one large cheesecake. Check within an hour of placing it on the rack.

Does Cheesecake Need to Be Refrigerated

Yes, cheesecake needs to be refrigerated. After it cools It goes in the fridge. This is required for any cheesecake recipe.

If you like cheesecake taste at room temperature then sit out your cheesecake before you want to eat it to come to room temperature. Just don’t leave it out for more than two hours before eating.

    1. I used pint jars but definitely recommend using 1/2 pint jars. That is plenty big for this delicious dessert.

  1. I have made this twice. I usually double the recipe but leave the sugar at 1\3 of a cup, this cheesecake is soooo good and my friends and I enjoy it because it’s not overly heavy or sweet, I have frozen it in the mason jars and it didn’t ruin the taste, it was still great.

    1. Thank you for sharing about freezing these. I’ve been wanting to make and ship to send to my son. Gonna give it a try now.

  2. can you use cheaper jars than Ball canning jars in the pressure cooker ? The one’s in the picture look generic.

    1. Yes I have. You do just want to be cautious when using glass that there is always a chance it can crack. But fingers crossed I have never had any trouble.
