Arrow My Instant PotŪ Go-Around #7

I got two Instant PotŪ accessories that I've been wanting to try,
but haven't had the time until now.

I also did a bunch of research on Cheesecakes in the Instant PotŪ
World. I found this recipe, a bit involved, very OCD about it, but ...
So I took a very deep breath and dove in.

I made the crust with the option of adding Flour, for a crisper/firmer crust.
Meh, I don't think I'd do that again ... too crumble-y for us.
I also didn't care for the color of this cake. I've been using Bakers Extract for awhile now, ever since the price of Vanilla Extract went through the roof! I think that's the issue there, so ...
But the flavor is quite nice and it does make a smaller cake, especially for just us two (I'm not sharing btw).

In conclusion: I'm stickin' with my girl Martha and using her recipe!

Wow, that recipe is crazy! Here's the cheesecake recipe I use - it works perfectly every time. This site has good, reliable Instant Pot recipes - the author wrote the recipes that came with mine.

Yeah... I'd never put flour into my graham cracker crust (nor added sugar). Note there is a wide variable with graham crackers for this purpose and I have found plain ol' Nabisco graham crackers are the best.

I make mine in a muffin tin with the paper liners. Due to the tin they bake and cool rather quickly, plus they seem to keep longer/better than a traditional sized cheesecake.

BTW, WalMart online's "Great Value" vanilla extract is pretty good and pretty cheap.

Interesting Scott.

I did some research and Walmart's Pure Vanilla
Extract at my store is $6.72/2 oz. bottle = $1.68/oz.
Costco has theirs down to $21.99/16 oz. bottle = $1.37/oz.

Costco had been my brand of choice for years now... I'm going to
have to plunk down the dough soon, I'm almost out!

The Baker's Extract was fine for cakes and cookies, but to me,
not great in this application.
