Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Cheesecake can be made ahead and frozen. Just prepare, bake and cool as directed. Do not add toppings. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freezer-weight foil; freeze up to 2 months. Remove from freezer the day before serving and place in the refrigerator to thaw. Add toppings just before serving.
Dessert can be part of a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.
