Storing and Freezing Cheesecake

Cheesecake is the perfect dessert. It's elegant, delicious and can be made ahead.

Refrigeration

Covered in the refrigerator ungarnished cheesecake can be safely stored for about 2 days. Garnish just before serving.

Freezing

Prepare a baked cheesecake the way you normally would BUT omit the topping/garnish. Wrap the plain ungarnished cheesecake securely in plastic wrap followed by foil. Freeze for up to 2 months. We don't recommend freezing chilled cheesecakes.

Defrosting

Whole Cheesecake: thaw wrapped cheesecake in refrigerator overnight. Do not defrost whole cheesecake in microwave oven.

Individual cheesecake slices: may be thawed on microwaveable plate on DEFROST (30% POWER) for 45 to 60 seconds. Let stand about 5 minutes until thawed.
