This is one of my favorite slow cooker dessert recipes. I love strawberries so that’s what I used to top mine with. You can use blueberries, blackberries, peaches, chocolate, or just leave it plain. However you decide to make yours, you will love it!
- 3 packages softened cream cheese
- 3/4 c. sugar
- 3 eggs
- 6 graham crackers
- 3 tbsp butter
- Beat cream cheese and sugar together.
- Add 1 egg at a time and beat in.
- Continue beating until creamy smooth.
- Smash graham crackers up into fine crumbs. You can use a food processor or just put them in a Ziploc bag and smash with a rolling pin.
- Get a glass baking dish that easily fits inside your crock pot with room on the sides for you to be able to pick it up.
- Put graham cracker crumbs into your baking dish and add melted butter. Mix all together with a fork and then press it to the bottom and edges of your dish to create your crust. (I only put the graham crackers on the bottom since I didn’t want the crust on the sides, too.)
- Add your cheesecake filling and level off the top with a spoon.

- Add 2-3 cups of water to your slow cooker (just enough so the water will cook the cheesecake, not spill over into your baking dish.
- Place baking dish with your cheesecake in the slow cooker making sure not to splash any water into your dish.

- Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 – 3 hours.
- When your cheesecake is finished cooking, place a dry paper towel on top to absorb any condensation that accumulated during cooking. You will know your cheesecake is done when it has puffed up and is starting to crack a little on the top. Carefully remove from slow cooker.
- Let your cheesecake sit for an hour. It will start to look less puffy and more like cheesecake.
- After about an hour, place in the fridge for at least another hour before serving.
- Top with glaze and strawberries or any of your favorite toppings.
