How long does it keep?

Once the cake has fully set, you can cover it and keep it refrigerated. it will keep well for up to 5 days so it’s a perfect make ahead option. It will also give you chance to get through the leftovers…if there are any!

Can you freeze it?

Yes, this freezes really well and will keep frozen for up to 3 months. Once it has completely set, wrap it in a couple of layers of foil and place in a freezer bag.

You can thaw frozen cheesecake in the fridge overnight or for about 2 hours at room temperature.

How do you serve it?

You can serve a slice of this cheesecake just as it is, although I like to add toppings like crumbled cookies or peanut butter candies. If you are feeling extra indulgent, you can’t go wrong with some whipped cream!

Tips!

  • Press the crust down firmly and make it as even as possible so that it supports the cheesecake.
  • Take the cream cheese out of the fridge an hour before you want to make this to allow it to soften. If it is too cold, you can end up with a lumpy cheesecake.
