I would like to make cheesecakes and freeze them ahead two weeks of a holiday. Is it ok to do this? If so, how should I wrap them? If I am using a blueberry filling in one, does it matter? Thanks.

      I always freeze my cheesecakes. Wait until they are cooled and then wrap in plastic wrap, tinfoil, and then put in a large ziplock bag. I usually freeze in the springform, but if you want to take out of the pan. slide onto a cardboard cake round.

        Cheesecake freezes just fine. You can even freeze it in individual slices so it will thaw faster.

          Last time I made baked cheesecake (with ground pistachios) I had too much filling and not enough crust, so I baked some filling in a brownie tin. Then I cut it up into chunks and froze it - and ate it straight from the freezer, like ice-cream. Totally yummy.

            Supermarkets all sell frozen cheesecake.

              Thanks for all the responses. Bottom line is that I want it to taste as good as fresh. That was my concern.
