How to Test Cheesecake Doneness
To avoid overbaking a cheesecake, check for doneness at the minimum baking time by gently shaking the pan. If the cheesecake is done, the edge should be slightly puffed and it will be set except for a small area in the center that will be soft and jiggly. Do not insert a knife into the center as this may cause the cheesecake to crack during cooling.
Cooling and Storing Cheesecakes
After removing cheesecake from oven, immediately run a knife or thin metal spatula around rim of springform pan to loosen cheesecake. (This will help reduce cracking as the cheesecake cools.) Do not unlatch or remove rim of pan during cooling. Refrigerate cooled cheesecake, uncovered, at least 4 hours or until chilled. Then, carefully loosen cheesecake by running a knife around rim of springform pan once again; remove rim. Cover loosely with plastic wrap or foil. Store in refrigerator up to 5 days.
