“I thought you had to work today?” Isabel from Hard To Resist (The Winters Family Book One) glanced over at Drew sitting on a barstool at the kitchen island as she walked into the kitchen.

“Nope, I took the day off.” His head was bent, and his eyes were locked onto something on his phone.

Isabel had walked into the kitchen to grab a few ingredients from the refrigerator. Instead, she took a couple of steps around the island and leaned over Drew’s shoulder, trying to get a peek at what he was looking at on his phone. “What are you doing?” On his screen was an image of a cheesecake.

Finally, he peeled his eyes away from the screen and turned his body to face her. “A little birdie told me you were making a new instant pot cheesecake recipe today, and I didn’t want to miss out on being your star taste tester.”

Isabel burst out laughing. Her body fell against Drew because she was laughing so hard. It took her a few minutes to stop laughing. She could finally talk after taking a few deep breaths and letting them out slowly. “Wait, did Danny switch his shift, too?”

“I’m not for sure. Why?”

She struggled to hold in her laugh. “Shawna just called and said she’s tied up with something and can’t help with the new recipe.”

“Did she say tied up?” Drew closed his eyes and tried to forget the image.

“I don’t think she meant literally.” They sat there silently for a split second, staring at each other. “On the other hand, we’re talking about Shawna.”

“Exactly.” He hopped off the barstool. “So, I guess you need someone to help you with the recipe.”

She stepped closer to him and wrapped her arms around his waist. “Did you switch shifts so you could help me with the recipe?”

“No, I switched shifts so I wouldn’t miss out on tasting the recipe.” He tapped the tip of his index finger on her nose. “I want more than one bite.”

“You’re never going to let me forget that, are you?” She started laughing again, remembering how she and Shawna had made a cheesecake and only saved one bite for Drew and one for Danny. They had gone a little crazy and ate the rest.

This recipe took me two tries and here's why...

I tried to reinvent the wheel. It’s true.

A few years ago, I made instant pot cheesecake and it’s been our favorite recipe ever since. Then, all thanks to Isabel and her inspiration, I searched for help to make a cookie dough version. I had some ideas and made my first attempt. Um, it was seriously the consistency of a flan because I added too many eggs.

The recipe had potential though.

As I thought about the recipe I had tried and then I remembered the recipe I made a few years ago, and I realized something…

…I was trying to create something completely new and yet, I already had a winning cheesecake recipe.

Here’s my PSA of the day- Don’t reinvent the wheel if you already have an awesome recipe. Use that and then mix it up.

So, I took my tried and true instant pot cheesecake recipe and just adjusted it to make it full of chocolate chip cookie dough love.

Isabel and I had fun creating this recipe for you. Enjoy!

Note: This recipe uses a six-inch springform pan that can fit nicely in your instant pot. You can check out the pan I used here.
