- 1 cup of Maria crackers cookies or shortbread cookies - about 12 individual cookies (for crust)
- 4 tablespoons of melted butter (for the crust)
- 2 pkg. 8-ounce - each - cream cheese, room temperature
- 3 - 8-ounce jars of homemade dulce de leche (divided)
- 2 large eggs at room temperature
- ½ tsp. vanilla
- Sea Salt to taste (for topping)
- 1½ cups of water (for Instant Pot Pressure Cooker)
- Spray and grease the inside bottom and sides of a 7" springform pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
- Place 12 Maria crackers in a Ziploc bag or a food processor and ground the cookies.
- In a small bowl, mix the ground cookies with the melted butter.
- Transfer the crust mix to the pre-greased 7" springform and press mix to the bottom and sides of the pan.
- Place the pan in your refrigerator or freezer while you make the dulce de leche cheesecake filling.
- In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add one egg at a time into the cream cheese and beat eggs and cream cheese together. Make sure to scrape the walls of the bowl to mix all the ingredients together well.
- Add two 8-ounce jars of homemade dulce de leche to the cream cheese and egg mixture and beat to mix.
- Add the vanilla extract into the cream cheese, egg & dulce de leche mixture and mix until smooth.
- Pour the dulce de leche mixture into the prepared springform pan and cover with aluminum foil.
- Pour water into the inner pot of your Instant Pot. Place the dulce de leche cheesecake springform dish on the Instant Pot's steam rack and put inside the inner pot.
- Now, put the lid on and turn the Steam Release to sealing.
- Then, press the "MANUAL" button and +/- to 35 minutes.
- Once the Instant Pot is done, let it "Natural Release" for 10 minutes, then
ventthe rest of the steam completely before opening the lid.
- To remove the dulce de leche springform dish from the Instant Pot pressure cooker, make an aluminum foil sling by folding a long piece of aluminum foil into three folds lengthwise and inserting it into the Instant Pot's steam rack handles and carefully lifting it out.
- To know when the cheesecake is done, most of the cheesecake should be set and its center should be a bit jiggly.
- While the cheesecake cools down, about 10 minutes. Place the remainder homemade dulce de leche into a saucepan on low heat for a few minutes to soften, this can also be done in a microwave safe dish and microwaving the dulce de leche sauce for 30 seconds.
- Once the dulce de leche sauce is softened, pour the sauce on top of the cheesecake and evenly spread it using a knife.
- Refrigerate the dulce de leche cheesecake for a minimum of 6 hours, preferably overnight.
- To serve, carefully remove the springform pan by running a small metal spatula around the edge of the pan. Cut cheesecake into slices. Sprinkle with sea salt. Serve and cover and refrigerate any remaining cheesecake.
