  • 1.5 cups water



  • Add cookies, sugar and pecans to the bowl of food processor and pulse a couple of times, until small crumbs form.
  • Melt butter in microwave or on stove top and add to graham cracker mixture. Pulse until just combined.
  • Pour cookie mixture into bottom of greased 6-inch cheesecake pan and press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the pan and one inch up along the sides.
  • Place pan with crust into freezer for 15 minutes.


  • Blend together cream cheese, sugar, pumpkin, Tapioca, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt, Bourbon and vanilla extract until smooth.
  • Add eggs and yolk, one at a time, mixing until just combined. Do not over mix the eggs.
  • Hand blend in cream thoroughly.
  • Pour filling into the pan, on top of the graham cracker crust.


  • Add 1.5 cups of water to the bottom of your pressure cooker and then place a trivet inside the pot.
  • Gently cover the cheesecake first with a paper towel and then with a piece of aluminum foil to tent.
  • Place cheesecake into pressure cooker using a sling.
  • Lock on lid and close Pressure Valve.  Cook at High Pressure for 40 minutes. Allow a 15 minute natural release.
  • After all pressure has been released, open pressure cooker and gently remove the pan. Remove the foil and paper towel and dab off any liquid that may have accumulated.
  • The center should be slightly soft, but don't worry. The heat that is trapped inside will continue to cook the center while the cheesecake cools.


  • Mix together the sour cream, sugar and Bourbon and then spread on the hot cheesecake.
  • Let cool on wire rack for one hour.
  • Lightly cover and place in refrigerator overnight.  Remove Cheesecake from pan and serve.


If you do not have cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, substitute with 2 teaspoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice or Allspice.
If you use a 7 inch pan, cut the cooking time to 35 minutes. For an 8 or 9 inch pan, using an 8 quart pressure cooker or larger, double the recipe.  Cook time is 35 minutes.
