For the crust

  • In a glass bowl add the butter, the chocolate couverture into pieces, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave at 800 Watt for 1 minute. Mix until the ingredients are homogenized.
  • In a blender, add the cookies and beat them until powdered.
  • Transfer the cookies into a bowl, add the melted couverture mixture, and mix well.
  • Line a 20 cm round baking pan with parchment paper, and make sure to cover both the base and the sides inside the baking pan.
  • Spread the mixture well over the whole base, and refrigerate to cool.

For the cream

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 2-3 minutes, until fluffy.
  • Add the salt, yogurt, cream cheese, lemon zest, and beat for 1 more minute until the ingredients are homogenized. Spread over the crust.

To assemble

  • In a pressure cooker add the trivet and then, the water.
  • Cover the cheesecake with aluminum foil and place it onto the trivet.
  • Transfer the pressure cooker over high heat. Seal with the lid, lower the heat to medium-low, turn the safety valve to the proper pressure indicator, and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and turn the safety valve so that the pressure cooker depressurizes. Alternatively, after turning off the heat, allow 5-10 minutes for it to depressurize on its own.
  • Allow some time for the dessert to come to room temperature and serve with honey, crushed walnuts, and thyme. Consume it at room temperature and not at refrigerator temperature.
