A big hello to all you Yellow Bliss Road readers! My name is Debbie and I’m one of the three sisters who blog over at Made From Pinterest where we make and create new and great content for Pinterest. I’m so excited that Kristin invited me to share her space today. And boy, do we have treat in store for you!

HOMEMADE INDIVIDUAL FREEZER CHEESECAKE!

I love cheesecake but my hubby LOVES CHEESECAKE! If we are having a special event, he is going to want me to make my cheesecake. So you can imagine my excitement when I learned how to make Freezer Cheesecake. You mean you can make cheesecake, put it in the freezer and then take it out when you need it? Mind. Blown.

When I read about this method, I certainly had to try it and let me tell you people, it truly works! Graham cracker crumbs go into the bottom of individual glass jars and a creamy cheesecake filling goes on top. So easy!

Screw on the lid nice and tight and pop these bad boys in the freezer. They will need a little time to defrost when ready to serve. Then you can just top them with whatever fruit topping your little heart desires. I loved how these turned out and now that I know that you can do this, or rather, now that my husband knows that I can do this, we will probably have these stocked in our freezer. I hope that you enjoy them too.

Thanks so much Kristin for letting us come and play today! We hope that you come on over to Made From Pinterest sometime soon and say hi!

Servings 8 jars
Calories 546kcal

Equipment

  • 8 8-ounce canning jars

Ingredients
  

Crust

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons salted butter

Filling

  • 16 ounces packaged cream cheese
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 large eggs
  • Water

Toppings

  • 2 cups Pie filling (blueberry, cherry, strawberry) or Lemon curd

Instructions
 

  • In a food processor, blend the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter until finely ground.
  • Wash and dry 6-8 freezer safe 8-ounce canning jars. Press the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of each jar.
  • In a large mixing bowl, using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat cream cheese and 1 cup sugar until fluffy, then stir in vanilla. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
  • Pour an equal amount of the cream cheese mixture over the graham cracker mixer in each of the jars. Cover each jar with foil and tightly seal around the edges.
  • If you have a canning pot, place jars in the rack spots. If you don't, you can use a stockpot with two thick kitchen towels placed in the bottom and place the jars on top of the towels to secure.
  • Pour in boiling water until the jars are submerged 2-inches. Cover with lid (You can use foil if you don't have a lid). Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Carefully remove jars and let dry completely. Use tongs and oven mits to protect your hands.
  • After they are dry, take a paper towel and wipe the inside of the glass of any cheesecake that might have gotten stuck there. Take the canning jar lid and ring and tightly screw the lid on top of the jar. Place in freezer until ready to serve.
  • When ready to serve, take out of freezer and let thaw. Top with desired toppings.

  1. Question? If your adding 3 eggs to cheesecake mixture for the jarred ones to freeze don’t you need to bake it so you don’t eat raw egg

  2. I want to make these for my daughter’s 16 birthday and deliver around town to her friends they they’ll have a zoom party, as we’re in stay at home state orders..
    How long do they need to thaw out of the freezer before able to eat?

  3. So I am confused…in top description it says put ingredients in jar, tighten lid and put in freezer.
    In recipe it says to put ingredients in jar, then in pot and boil for 20 minutes, then put on lid and freeze.
    Which way is it? Thank you.

    1. Hi Marilyn, the post is recounting a basic description of the steps and may not include them all. Always use the printable recipe that includes ingredients and instructions. Thanks!
