could i use a pre-made graham cracker crust?
For this recipe, we help you make your own crust layer, mostly because there are two layers throughout the cheesecake.
You could use a pre made graham cracker crust, however, we recommend making your own, and giving yourself enough for the middle layer of graham cracker, in the cheesecake.
what could i replace the graham crackers with?
I always make this recipe with graham crackers and have never had any complaints. However, if you don’t have any on hand, or wanting to switch it up, here are a few replacements we recommend:
- Vanilla Oreos
- Vanilla Wafers
- Golden Graham Cereal
- Biscoff Cookies
- Vanilla Cookie
what is the best way to store this cake?
I love this recipe, and my family does as well, that we usually don’t have much leftover. However, if you do have some leftover, the best way to store them is putting them in the fridge.
We recommend placing them in an air tight storage container, and putting them in the fridge.
If you aren’t going to eat it for more than a week, we recommend freezing it. Again the best way to freeze it is placing them in an airtight storage container and putting it in the freezer.
It will last nicely in the freezer for about 2 weeks, and in the fridge, about 3-5 days.
To thaw it, we recommend placing it in the fridge overnight and serving it the next day. We don’t recommend microwaving it, because it will melt and lose it’s texture.
