Easy White Chocolate Cheesecake Great Make-Ahead Dessert!
Easy White Chocolate Cheesecake recipe is a creamy, rich dessert and it is one of my healthy easy recipes! Cheesecake has been touted as the #1 American dessert. What can be better than a rich tasting but better for you cheesecake recipe! This fabulous cheesecake is from my Gulf Coast Favorites cookbook. Cheesecakes might be delicious but they are also the perfect make ahead dessert recipe. Cheesecake is a great dessert to put on your holiday menu because you can make it ahead of time and freeze. Now, you can cross another recipe off your to-do list.
How To Freeze A Cheesecake
I make this easy white chocolate cheesecake recipe ahead of time. Then, I let it cool and freeze to pull out whenever I need it. When your cheesecake is frozen, it is also so much easier to remove from the spring form pan to put on your desired serving plate. I took my White Chocolate Cheesecake out the day before and I put in the refrigerator for it to defrost.
Turn Easy White Chocolate Cheesecake Into A SHOWPIECE with my trick!
I usually put the finishing touches on my cheesecake last because I want to have it on my serving plate. Try topping the cheesecake with fresh raspberries and drizzle with melted white chocolate. I must confess about my cheesecake story. One time I made this recipe and didn’t top it with the raspberries and white chocolate–guess what it actually didn’t make the splash it usually does. We do eat with our eyes and this easy topping will turn this White Chocolate Cheesecake into an extraordinary fancy dessert with such little effort!!!
My White Chocolate Cheesecake is trim & terrific!
Remember my White Chocolate Cheesecake recipe is from my Gulf Coast Favorites cookbook which means it is also trim & terrific! My desserts are better for you and this book has SO MANY delicious dessert recipes!!! If you order cheesecake at a restaurant, it might have 25 grams sat fat and this recipe has 6 grams! Remember, ALL the recipes from my dinner party menu are from my cookbooks so you don’t leave the party stuffed!
