  • Step 1

    Place all the crust ingredients in a large bowl and mix until fully combined. Line a Ninja Multi- Purpose Pan with a nonstick silicone baking mat (or parchment paper or 8″ round baking pan) and press into an even layer on the bottom and sides of the pan. Make the crust on the bottom thicker than on the sides.

  • Step 2

    Place the cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl and whip until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and continue to whip until fully combined. If using a hand or stand mixer, use a medium speed to avoid over-beating the eggs. Pour the filling over the crust.

  • Step 3

    Add the berry sauce ingredients to the pot and stir until evenly combined.

  • Step 4

    Place the pan on the bottom layer of the Deluxe Reversible Rack in the lower position, then place the rack in the pot. Close the lid and move slider to STEAMCRISP.

  • Step 5

    Select STEAM & BAKE, set temperature to 250°F, and set time to 35 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (PrE will display for approx. 20 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, the cheesecake will still be jiggly in the center. Remove the rack with the pan and allow to cool for about 30 minutes. Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 1 hour to give it a firmer texture before serving.

  • Step 7

    Take the cheesecake out the refrigerator, slice with a wet knife, and serve with the berry sauce.
