3/4 c Chocolate Graham cracker
Crumbs -=OR=-
3/4 c Graham cracker crumbs;
3/4 c Chocolate wafer crumbs;
12 oz Cream cheese; softened
1/2 c Sugar;
1 tb All-purpose flour;
3 Eggs;
1 ts Vanilla;
4 oz Semisweet chocolate; melted
-- cooked
2 c Water;
Sweetened whipped cream;
-- (optional)
Shaved chocolate;
-- (optional)

Grease a 6 or 7 springform pan on sides and bottom. Coat bottom of
pan with crumbs. Set aside. Tear off two 2 20x2" pieces of heavy
foil. Crisscross the strips and place pan in center.

In blender container or food processor bowl place cream cheese, sugar,
eggs, and vanilla. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Pour
into prepared pan and cover with foil.

Place rack and water in a 4- or 6 qt pressure cooker. Bring up the
foil strips, lift the ends of the strips and transfer pan into
cooker. Fold ends of foil strips over the top of the pan.

Lock lid in place. Place the pressure regulator on the vent pipe (
if you have a first-generation cooker). Over high heat, bring cooker
up to pressure. Reduce the heat just enough to maintain pressure and
pressure regulator rocks gently; cook for 30 minutes for the 6" pan
or 25 minutes for the 7" pan.

Allow pressure to come down naturally. Carefully remove lid.

Using foil strips, carefully lift cheesecake out of the cooker.
Remove foil. Place on a wire rack and cook 15 minutes; loosen sides
of cheesecake. Cool to room temperature. Remove sides of pan.
Cover and chill for 2 - 24 hours. Garnish with whipped cream and
shaved chocolate, if desired. Make 8 servings.
