Making a simple graham cracker crust for your cheesecake is easier than you think.
You will need to throw it into your oven first to firm that up a bit before pouring in your “batter”.
Of course you can add things inside your Instant Pot cheesecake recipe like little bits of candy bars or something but we are talking about a simple pressure cooker cheesecake right now.
From there you will know how it is done and you can get “fancier” after that.
I am sure you have a trivet but if you don’t you can always use a small pyrex glass bowl upside down as a trivet in a pinch.

- Graham crackers – crushed
