Cheesecake, cheesecake and more cheesecake, what an awesome special treat it makes, for any occasion. This is one of the BEST reasons to get an air fryer, we can all make easy cheesecakes, from Cherry, Chocolate, Oreo and so much more, and it only takes a fraction of the time that a regular cheesecake.
It is also one of the easiest items to make in an air fryer, it’s perfect for a beginner. All you really need is a small pie pan, which I was able to snag on Amazon
This an easy and flavorful cheesecake recipe, it only needs the basic ingredients of any cheesecake, cream cheese, melted butter, sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs, and you have a great and flavorful dessert. Today, I used an easy hack, which was a prepared pie crust, found in the refrigerated aisle of the grocery store, next time, I will make a more traditional cheesecake with a graham cracker layer.
If you are looking for a spin on this dessert, this is it, it’s also done in under 20 minutes, which is another great reason to make this.
I hope you and your family enjoy!
