FAQs

What to Serve With Pecan Pie Cheesecake?

Serve it after your holiday meal or as a dessert for a party. Pecan pie cheesecake is best served with a dollop of whipped cream, or try it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

How Should Cheesecake be Stored?

You should refrigerate cheesecake because it contains dairy products that will spoil, like cream cheese. If you have any leftover cheesecake, make sure to cover it so it doesn’t dry out in the fridge. When stored properly, the cheesecake will stay fresh for up to a week.
