Chocolate Cheesecake - Pressure Cooker
1 cup chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
2 Tbsp butter, melted
Mix 1 cup cookie crumbs and butter together. Press in bottom of 7” spring form pan. Set aside.
1 cup water
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
(Variation: Add 1 tsp instant coffee to melted chocolate chips for a mocha cheesecake.)
Blend cream cheese in bowl with mixer until smooth. Gradually add sugar. Mix thoroughly. Adding one egg at a time, mix until cheese is smooth. Fold in melted chocolate until thoroughly blended. Add remaining 3/4 cup of cookie crumbs into mixture. Pour into spring form pan over crust. Add water to cooker. Tear off a 6” piece of aluminum foil and fold in half, lengthwise. This helps to remove pan after cooking cycle is complete. Place spring form pan on foil and lower into Nesco® Pressure cooker.
Cover and lock lid in place. Turn regulator knob to SEAL. Program for HIGH pressure and cook for 20 minutes. Release pressure by using the quick release method. Unlock and open lid.
Remove cheesecake from pressure cooker by lifting up the ends of foil.
Let cool to room temperature before refrigerating. For best results, refrigerate overnight.
