Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter in bowl of a food processor or stand mixer.

Blend until crumbs stick together. Press crumbs onto the bottom of a 7″ x 3″ push pan. If an outer edge of crust is desired, press crumbs up 2″ on the sides.

Bake crust for 10 minutes. Cool.

In the bowl of a mixer with a paddle attachment, mix cream cheese until soft. Add the sugar, vanilla, heavy whipping cream, bourbon vinegar (1 1/2 Tbsp)and salt, mix on low until very smooth. Remove and scrape the sides. Return the bowl to the mixer. Slowly add eggs 1 at a time just until blended, Carefully add and fold 1/2 cup of salted caramel sauce into the mixture. Pour batter into the crust. Wrap foil over the top of the cheesecake pan. Carefully place the Cheesecake in a Pressure Cooker on a trivet with 1 1/2 cups water. Set pot to 35 minutes on manual high pressure and do a 15 minute NPR. Check cake, It should jiggle in the middle just a little, Cool to room temperature, and then cool completely in the refrigerator overnight is best. When ready to remove from the pan, gently run a knife around the outside edge of the cheesecake. Cover the top with 1/4 cup of caramel sauce, 1/2 Tbsp balsamic bourbon, mixed , add chopped pralines over the top.
