freezing cheesecake

Berkeley, CA(Zone 9a)

Does anyone know if a cheesecake can be frozen for a few weeks?

I make my own cheesecake, using Alton Brown's sour cream cheesecake recipe. It's easily found on Google. It freezes beautifully. I even have a friend who cuts it into 12 pieces, so he can defrost one slice at a time. Good stuff.

Purchased cheesecake, or any other recipe; I don't know, but Mr. Brown's recipe is a winner.

I don't know why can buy them frozen in the grocery store. We buy cheesecakes from The Cheesecake Factory and freeze them and they are excellent.

You can freeze cheesecake. Cooking them in advance saves so much time. Make sure that it is wrapped well in plastic wrap and then place in a air tight container. (Think of something that has the air sucked out so there are no refrigerator taste and smells getting to it). Then double the zip lock bags etc.
I freeze my cheesecakes all the time and use them within the month or so. After that I found that the texture changed a little bit, or eat them frozen.
Let us know how they turned out.

I always freeze mine. I slice it and set it on a cookie sheet. Freeze,then take it out and wrap the frozen pieces up in Saran Wrap. Put back in freezer. And take out one piece at a time. Unwrap them before they thaw out so their perfectly shaped slices when they thaw. Works perfectly for me!!

Yes you can. I have made it many times and frozen some to eat at a later date.
