Instant pot Pecan Pie Cheesecake is absolutely life-changing. That may sound a bit dramatic but I really feel that way. I have always been intimidated by making cheesecake and getting the dreaded crack. I find making a cheesecake in my instant pot so much less intimidating. It is so easy and the delicious Pecan topping will hide any imperfections you may have. Fill my tummy with the most delicious tasting Pecan Pie and cheesecake and my mind only see’s delicious, not imperfections. 🙂
I love being able to whip up a delicious cheesecake. Having last minute company is no longer a problem. I am officially the hostess with the mostess with my instant pot by my side. The last time I had my family over for a BBQ, I made the most delicious Instant Pot Potato Salad and Instant Pot Baked Beans. My father in law LOVED the beans. He was raving about them.
