I'm a new Instant Pot user and was extremely please with how this turned out. The filling is very creamy. I had difficulty finding chocolate wafer cookies so I used chocolate graham crackers and they worked well. The moisture that collected on top could be blotted off, but the crust was wetter than I liked so I put it in the oven at 200 degrees for 10 minutes and that worked great to dry out moisture in the crust. An interesting use for an Instant Pot!

am SO incredibly happy to hear this. curious as to when you popped the cake in the oven to dry out the crust? before you filled it? and yes: chocolate graham crackers are an excellent substitute for chocolate wafers.

Popped it in the oven after it cooked in the Instant Pot just to dry the graham cracker crumbs from the accumulated moisture.

Any recommended accessory for the IP to make this wonderful cake happen? Spring foam pans? Stack N’ Cook pans? Thanks!
Yes!! I would def make sure U have the trivet that the IP comes with and I love the fat daddio 7-inch cheesecake pan with a removable bottom. Here’s the link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0012Q32JM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_MUzZDb2W8E12V

Can I omit peanut butter? Should I add something else if I don't want peanut butter or it doesn't matter?
I wouldn’t omit the PB. Sorry about that but the recipe is written to work with the addition of the PB. If u want a plain IP cheesecake you could try the one i mention in my article . . .
I don’t think it’s a good idea. I’d try the one I mentioned in my article, instead.
