You’ll be hard-pressed to find a dessert more crowd-pleasing than cheesecake. Between its silky-smooth texture and crunchy, buttery crust, it’s almost impossible to stop at just one bite. Here, we’ve rounded up our most popular cheesecake recipes ever — which range from an innovative new Instant Pot version to our classic standby.

1. How To Make the Easiest Instant Pot Cheesecake

Making cheesecake in your pressure cooker yields an easier, arguably more delicious dessert. Plus, there are endless ways to top it, from a tart lemon curd to homemade hot fudge sauce.

2. Lemon-Blackberry Cheesecake Bars with Toasted Coconut Crust

There’s no steam bath required for these easy cheesecake bars. The tangy lemon-blackberry filling is a delicious contrast to the sweet, coconut-y shortbread crust. Make them your new go-to treat for potlucks.

3. Easy Mini Cheesecakes

Bite-sized cheesecakes are quick to whip together, pretty to look at, and fun to eat, too. Top a few with fresh raspberries, then play around with other toppings — like Oreos or whipped cream — for the rest.

4. No-Bake 5-Ingredient Whipped Pumpkin Cheesecake

A quick whip in the stand mixer is all you need to make these super-fluffy cheesecake cups. Thanks to already-sweetened and spiced pumpkin pie filling, you barely need any extra ingredients.

5. Martha Stewart’s Slow Cooker Cheesecake

The slow, steady application of low heat from the slow cooker gives this vanilla-scented cheesecake an almost custard-like consistency. Plus, the appliance pretty much does all the work for you.

6. German-Style Lemony Cheesecake

Unlike the dense American-style cheesecake, German-style cheesecake is super fluffy — almost like a soufflé. If you can find it, use Quark (a European farmers cheese) in the filling. If not, sour cream or Greek yogurt will work just fine.
