Holiday traditions are always fun and I am always stuck with making the mashed potatoes.  I make some mean ones, check them out at this link.  Also this year I decided to make my very own Pumpkin Cheesecake in Instant Pot.  It was such a hit I am going to share with you how to make.

What you need

1 1/2 packages of cream cheese
14 oz bag of ginger snaps
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 stick of butter
2 eggs
4 tsp of pumpkin spice
2 can of pumpkin puree
(you can use fresh too)
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of sour cream
2 tsp of vanilla

How to make 

You will first take own your eggs, sour cream and butter about 30 minutes before you prep.
Once the 30 minutes is over you will first get your gingersnap cookies out and use your blender to crush them up. 
Once they are all crushed up you will take your eggs, sugar, sour cream, and cream cheese out.  Mix them in your blender or a mixture till they are smooth.
Next get a bowl own and pour your pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice mix.  You will mix those up together.  
Now get your butter and melt it if still hard in the microwave.  


Mix up 3/4 of your gingersnap with your butter till there are no dry crumbs. 
(you might feel you need 1/8 stick more butter each person varies)
Now get out your spring pan you got for your pressure cooker.  (Click here to see my favorite)
Place your gingersnap mix on the bottom of your spring pan. 
Next, add a layer of your pumpkin mix in.  
Then add a layer of cheesecake mix in.  

Make yourself a foil sling (click here to understand)
Place your spring pan in the pressure cooker.
Close your lid and cook for 30 minutes.
Once your timer goes off you can open the valve and open once the valve goes down.

I do go and let my cheesecake sit in the fridge for 1 hour then remove the cheesecake from the spring pan.  So I can cook my second cheesecake.  Then overall the cheesecakes must sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours before you can eat.  I have never tried to mix together so I can not tell you for sure if it would work that way or not.
