What to do with leftover cheesecake? Refrigerate or Freeze?

Cheesecake Chocolate DrizzeledCheesecakes 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.
