First, you’ll need your tools, including an Instant Pot, of course, but also a pan that will fit inside of it.

Then, combine softened cream cheese, sugar, eggs, Oreo cookies and a few other ingredients using an electric mixer. Pour this over the crust in the pan and cover with foil.
Place this on top of the trivet in your instant pot, using foil to create a sling around the pan if your trivet doesn’t have handles. That way, you’ll be able to easily remove the pan once it’s ready to come out.
Cook in the instant pot for 35 minutes, then pull it out and let the cheesecake to cool on the counter. Placing it in the fridge to chill for at least 6 hours.
