Best Slow-Cooker Cheesecake

The easiest way to make a perfect tender no-crack cheesecake is in the crockpot. Most people associate Crock-Pots with thick, hearty stews or fork-tender cuts of meat. But the same principles that allow the flavors of a stock to build also apply to desserts made in the slow cooker. With this cheesecake, the slow, steady application of low heat yields a perfectly creamy, silky, almost custard-like texture to cheesecake.

Prep Time: 0 hours 25 mins
Total Time: 7 hours 25 mins

  • Cooking spray, for pan
  • 3/4 c. graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1/2 c. plus 1 tbsp. sugar, divided
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • 2 8-oz. blocks cream cheese, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 c. sour cream
  • 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract


Grease a 6” springform pan and wrap tightly with two layers of foil. In a 6-quart slow cooker, pour 1” water. Create a foil circle and place inside slow cooker as a rack.

Make crust: In a large bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, butter, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Press into greased pan and set aside.

Make filling: In a large bowl using a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and remaining 1/2 cup sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, sour cream, flour, vanilla, and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and beat until combined.

Pour filling over crust. Top slow cooker with three layers of paper towels and lid.

Cook on high for 2 hours, then turn off heat and let stand 1 hour.

Remove cheesecake from slow-cooker and remove foil from pan. Refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 4 hours and up to overnight.
