Instant-pot Cheesecake for Two

yield2 portions

The Instant Pot craze of the past few years shows no signs of slowing down, and with good reason--this electronic pressure cooker doesn't heat up the kitchen, and it makes quick work of braised meats, soups, yogurt, and desserts like cheesecake. If you're watching calories, this recipe is ideal, because it produces two neat little cheesecakes--no tempting leftovers.
