If there’s one snack synonymous with childhood it’s the OREO. A classic American cookie that begs to be dipped in a glass of ice cold milk. Well, that was how my 8 year old self saw it anyhow… And to be honest I never outgrew the comfort of that dark cocoa crunch paired with the creamy sweet interior. It’s still a combination I dream of—but now that I can make my OWN desserts…how can I incorporate all that’s great about the OREO and make it even better?
Yes, that deep cocoa flavor with the sweet / tart tang of a good cheesecake. A match made in heaven! Now all I need is a DeLorean Time Machine to go back and serve this unbelievably tasty treat to my young self and forever change the course of history…
Why bake it in the Instant Pot? Cheesecake is one of the few baked items that turn out better in the Instant Pot – it cooks more evenly and there’s almost no chance cracking. Plus you don’t have to fuss with a bain -marie in the oven
Using a silicone sling makes it easier to load and lift the cheesecake out of the Instant Pot (purchase one here). Be sure to wrap the top & bottom of the pan with foil. This helps keep the top of the cheesecake flat and the crust crisp
If you use your Instant Pot on the counter under your cabinets, this is an awesome accessory that diverts the steam downward and away from your cabinets (purchase here)
