What to do with leftover cheesecake? Refrigerate or Freeze?
Cheesecakes are so good but so rich. Unless you have a real party, there’s
likely to be some left over. Here’s what you can do with that too-good-to-waste cheesecake.
To refrigerate your cheesecake:
Wrapped in plastic, your cheesecake will last three
days in the refrigerator. If you have an airtight container that you
can put it in, it’ll last five days.
To freeze your cheesecake:
Freeze individual slices and then wrap them in foil
or plastic and place them in heavy freezer-type plastic bags. Slices
will last for three weeks. You can freeze an entire cheesecake and it
will last four to six weeks. Always store your frozen cheesecake in
the freezer, not in the freezing compartment of your refrigerator where
it is not as cold.
To unthaw your cheesecake:
Thaw your cheesecake
overnight in the refrigerator. In a rush, individual slices can be unthawed
on the counter in thirty minutes.
