Questions & Answers - How To Freeze Cheesecakes
I have decided to make baked cheesecakes as
Christmas gifts, but I am wondering about freezing them so that I can make
them early. What is the best way to freeze them, and how long can they stay frozen?
I have frozen them over a month and they were great! This is the wonderful thing about cheesecakes, is that you can freeze them ahead and use later. Freezing for more than a month is not recommended to retain the best quality.

Do I freeze the cheesecake inside the spring form pan or do I take them out. If so, how do I keep them from falling apart. - Craig Bentley (8/02/06)
I remove the outer rim
of the springform pan and leave the cheesecake sitting on the bottom of the
pan. Then wrap with several layers of plastic wrap. They do not fall apart
if you do this. Also check out above on using a cardboard bottom.
