A Sunday/Special dessert………

Actually, any day a cheesecake enters my life, is a special day! This time, it’s a recipe from the “This Old Gal” blog that is one of many great hot weather recipes because they utilize the Instant Pot electric pressure cooker. Yes…..for this cheesecake, no oven is turned on to heat up a summertime kitchen….gotta love that. The New York Cheesecake recipe was followed (for the 7” pan) with these slight modifications: in place of the heavy cream addition, I added 3 tablespoons of Blue Chair Bay Key Lime Rum Cream (yum!) and 3 tablespoons French Vanilla Creamer. I used the zest of 2 limes only rather than the 2 types of zest in the original recipe. I, also, used Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream topping               Key Lime Cheesecake 2 Resting for an hour….still very hot!      Key Lime Cheesecake And after 24 hours in the frig. Now, since it’s only 9:15 in the morning, I will take a bit of a break til I slice this beauty after lunch..significant pause……………..while we’re waiting, you might find this no-bake version interesting. It uses sweetened condensed milk like most Key Lime pie recipes.

   I’m back with the honest assessment of this version……AWESOME!!!!!!! IMG_9508      I highly recommend this recipe, and any variations you can come up with!!! Wonder what I should have for supper tonight??!!!!!! hehehehe…….

  1. Thanks for sharing your lovely actually divine looking cake. I had made a no bake cheesecake during our very muggy weather recently and the recipe is similar to the one in the link. The idea of using the Instant Pot is amazing. Lovely quilts in your last post.

    I will try it–I failed at making rice in my Instant Pot and haven’t made anything since–thanks for the advice on the pot…

    I’ve been hearing so much about the Instant Pot. Fascinating process.
    And your cheesecake looks delish!

      I love cheesecakes that are super creamy and not on the dry side/heavy and this recipe and process turns out perfect every time. The pan is a 7″ “push” pan (Amazon) and is the largest that will fit in my 6 qt. IP. The resulting cheesecake will give you 10 “sane” sized pieces (it could be 8 but……….). The best part is the timing is regulated perfectly…no guess work. The IP is awesome for cooking ribs, chicken and many other recipes! Check out the “This Old Gal” site.

  5. Cheesecake is my absolute favorite dessert. I wish I could sit at your breakfast/dinner/whenever we eat cheesecake table.

      Oh, Audrey! This recipe is so easy to mix up and the “baking” part (done in an electric pressure cooker!) doesn’t even heat up the house….and that’s why I have a tendency to make a few of these while in TX (I bought an Instant Pot, elect. pressure cooker, to keep down there). This particular recipe variation is even better than Key Lime Pie….IMHO!!!!
