Layered on a crumbly graham cracker crust and topped with drizzles of caramel sauce, this is a recipe you’ll want to make again and again.

Your Key Ingredient:

NESCO Pressure Cooker
NESCO 16-Speed Hand Mixer

Grocery Ingredients:


1 cup graham cracker crust
3 Tbsp butter, melted


2, 8 oz packages cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs


2 Tbsp coarse sea salt
Caramel syrup for drizzling


  1. Mix graham crackers and melted butter in a bowl and press evenly into the bottom on an 8″ springform pan and about 1 inch up the sides. Set aside.

  3. Place the wire rack and 2 cups of water in NESCO® Pressure Cooker. Fold a 12″ piece foil into thirds to create a “sling” for easy removal of the pan. Using the sling, lower the pan into the Pressure Cooker and lock the lid. Set pressure valve to “pressure” and cook on HIGH for 25 minutes.
  4. When timer is up, use Quick Release to lower the pressure. remove cheesecake from Pressure Cooker and let cool slightly.
  5. Sprinkle sea salt on top of cheesecake and drizzle with caramel syrup. Chill for at least 3 hours, or up to 2 days.
