Cheesecake will definitely be on the menu for Easter this year and, with all of the ingredients for this recipe on sale, I will be making a few of them to take to family gatherings.  They won’t all be raspberry though.  I will make one blueberry and one strawberry.  You can really use any topping you like.  As a matter of fact, I will be changing up the crust as well.  So, go ahead and make it your own.  Add the ingredients your family loves most.  Let me know how you like it and how you personalize your cheesecake recipe. 

Instant Pot Raspberry Cheesecake


  • 10
    Oreo Cookies
  • 2
    8 oz pkg
    Cream Cheese softened
  • 6
    Granulated sugar
  • 1/2
    Sour cream
  • 2
    room temperature
  • 1
    Vanilla extract


  • 1/4
    Raspberry jam
  • 2


  1. First you want to prepare your crust by placing your oreo cookies in a food processor and process until you have fine crumbs.

  2. prepare a 6″ spring form pan by spraying with nonstick spray. You can even go an extra step and add a piece of parchment paper to the bottom.

  3. Pour your cookie crumbs into the bottom of the pan and press down with spoon. Place your crust in the freezer until you are finished with your filling.


  1. Place your cream cheese in the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment (you can also use a hand mixer), and mix until light and fluffy. Make sure there are no lumps at all left in this part. Mix for around 3-5 minutes.

  2. Next, add in your sugar 1 tbsp at a time and make sure it is all combined.

  3. Add in the vanilla extract and sour cream. Mix well until combined. Scrape down the sides of your bowl before the next step.

  4. Finally, add in your eggs. For this step, it is important that you mix as little as possible. Add in one egg at a time and only mix long enough until the egg is completely combined into the rest of the mix.

  5. Pour cheesecake mix into your spring form pan and tap against the table a few times.

  6. Now it is time to make the topping. Place the water and jam into a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. The mixture should be very thin. Place the mixture into a Zip-Lock bag and cut a small hole in one corner.

  7. You can get creative and put dots in a spiral along your cake or you can just make random swirls on top. Get creative!

  8. Cover your spring form with aluminium foil and seal as best as you can to keep water from getting to your cake.

  9. Place 1 cup of water and a trivet into your instant pot.

  10. Place the cheesecake on top of trivet and place your lid on and make sure it is in the sealing position.

  11. Set for high pressure for 35 minutes. Allow for a natural release.

  12. Once you can take the top off, CAREFULLY remove the cheesecake and allow to cool completely on the counter, then place in the refrigerator for at least 5 hours, but best overnight.

Salted Caramel Cheesecake Recipe | Ashlee Marie

this salted caramel cheesecake with a shortbread macadamia nut crust is beautiful and delicious. A huge favorite at our house


This Salted Caramel Cheesecake mixes two of the best desserts ever. A smooth creamy perfect cheesecake with a rich decadent homemade caramel mixed in. All over a delicious shortbread crust.

How I created this Salted Caramel Cheesecake recipe

There isn’t much I love better than caramel. It’s good in pretty much every dessert, cakes, ice creams, marshmallows, brownies, cookies, etc…. So when National Caramel day came up for our “Celebrating Food” this month I had a hard time narrowing it down! There are SO many caramel recipes I haven’t shared yet.  I settled on Salted Caramel Cheesecake, and I’m SO glad I did.

Deciding on the caramel cheesecake turned out to be the easy part… did I want to add pecans, toffee, chocolate or salt? You can go in SO many directions with this.  I decided to stick with the salty side.  THEN for the crust??? Rather than a traditional cookie crust I made a shortbread that I added chopped macadamia nuts to, but you can go in any direction with this.  You could always use crushed shortbread cookies in a traditional crust for a similar flavor.

Don’t forget I have a ton of cheesecake tips and tricks (that work with all cheesecakes) on this dense and creamy cheesecake recipe, along with this cheesecake video sharing those tips and tricks while making a cheesecake.

Tips and tricks for creating your own Cheesecake flavor

  • Change the crust – you can turn any cookie into a crumb crust – graham crackers, nilla wafers, oreos, etc…
  • Change the crust – you can use a different dessert as the base – cake, brownie, cookie, macaroon, etc…
  • Change up the filling – Add some kind of flavoring – maple extract, lemon zest and juice, peanut butter, caramel sauce, melted chocolate, etc…
  • Add mix ins – Bacon, chocolate chips, peanut butter cups, oreo cookies, lemon curd, marshmallows, nuts, etc…
  • Add toppings – caramel bacon pecan topping, lemon curd, meringue, hot fudge, sour cream topping, mousse, whipped cream, caramel sauce, etc…

Tips and Tricks for baking the Perfect Cheesecake with no cracking

  • Room temperate ingredients are key for a smooth texture.
  • Beat the cream cheese and sugar as much as you want, make it smooth, but once you add the eggs, do NOT overbeat, just mix on low until they are barely incorporated, beating after you add the eggs is what often leads to cracking.
  • Make sure your oven is the correct temperature (I love my oven thermometer)
  • TRY not to open the oven door, like ever, if you can help it.
  • I used to hate water baths – the foil always leaks and I don’t like mushy crusts – but waterbaths keep cheesecakes more evenly baked and nice and flat – so now I recommend a silicone waterbath pan!!!
  • If you run out of water in the water bath pan make sure to boil any water you add so it doesn’t stop the baking process.
  • Cook your cheesecake until it’s puffy and set on the outer edge but it’s still a bit jiggly in the center, like a loose jello jiggler, but not liquid, in the center 4-5 inches.  It will keep cooking afterwards a bit, and IMO better to be slightly under cooked than overcooked.
  • Turn off the oven and crack open the oven door to let it cool slowly, this will help it finish cooking but not cool TOO fast and crack
  • Do NOT eat it right away, cheesecake sets and gets BETTER with time in the fridge, at LEAST 8 hours

everyone loves salted caramel, and this cheesecake is no exception, it's delicious and a huge hit

  • 1 1/4 C all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 C finely chopped macadamia nuts


  • 2 lbs full fat cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C caramel sauce
  • 2 lrg eggs room temp
  • 1 lrg egg yolk room temp



  1. preheat the oven to 350F,

  2. In your mixer beat the butter until fluffy

  3. Add brown sugar and mix well,

  4. Add flour and mix until a dough forms

  5. Mix in the nuts

  6. Spread into 10 inch cheesecake pan, poke holes

  7. Bake 18 mins

  8. Let cool.

  9. Reduce oven to 300 and place baking dish full of hot water on the bottom rack to create moisture (leave this in while baking).


  1. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on med until light and fluffy, about 30-60 sec.

  2. While beating on low add the caramel sauce

  3. Scrape the bowl, beat 45 sec more – make sure it’s smooth with no chunks.

  4. Lightly whisk the eggs and yolks together and add to cream cheese mixture

  5. Mix on low speed until they are incorporated and the batter is velvety, about 30 sec, scrape the bowl and mix 10 sec more – do NOT overbeat.

  6. Pour the filling over crust, bake on the center rack about 1 hour +.

  7. how to tell cheesecake is done – When you open the rack and shift the pan the center 3-4 inches will jiggle – not like soup, like a loose jello jigglers.

  8. Turn the oven off and crack open the door and let the cake cool then refrigerate overnight.

  9. The next day pour the rest of the caramel over the top of the cake

  10. Sprinkle the fleur de sel over the top of the cheesecake, as much or as little (I’m all for MORE is better)

Recipe Notes

Cook the sauce while the crust is baking, then let it cool.
When it’s slightly cool press some plastic wrap down across the top so the sauce doesn’t get a “skin”. It will be slightly warm when you add it to the filling.
You’ll probably need to warm it up just a bit before adding it the top of the cheesecake so keep it in a microwave safe container.
