cheesecake

I know cheesecakes are sold frozen commercially, but has anyone baked a cheesecake and frozen it? Trying to make some things ahead of time for Thanksgiving.

I did not have a good experience freezing a home made cheesecake. It was very watery when it defrosted. Apple cakes freeze well. Brownies also freeze well

Thanks Monita! I didn't want to experiment and then have a lousy dessert for Thanksgiving. I'll just fit it in to my prep!

I freeze a half dozen cheesecakes at a time routinely with great success. Be sure it is completely cool, then double-wrap it in good plastic wrap. Thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. When you unwrap it, some moisture may have condensed on the surface; simply blot it up with a paper towel. And have a lovely thanksgiving.

Thank you Cynthia! Do you refrigerate it a day before freezing or just straight in the freezer after cooling?

Nope, once it is cooled, it can be wrapped and go straight to the freezer.
