TO STORE: Cheesecake softens when left at room temperature. As such, you must keep the cheesecake stored in the refrigerator, covered. It will remain fresh for up to 2 weeks. If you do prefer a creamier cheesecake, let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, before enjoying it.

TO FREEZE: Place lemon cheesecake slices in a shallow container and store in the freezer for up to 6 months.
