Can you freeze cheese if you are going to use it to bake cheesecake?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

If you make homemade cheese like cream cheese and mascarpone cheese and you made extra, is it ok to freeze it, I know freezing it alters texture and mouth feel, but what if it is going to be used for cooking like cheesecake where it will be defrosted and whipped to even it back out and put in oven, does it affect the texture since it will be cooked? Thanks in advance for the replies.

I know that store bought cream cheese does not freeze well.

Don't know about homemade.

Thanks for the reply, I read somewhere that if the cheese is defrosted and mix properly or still properly for 10 minutes it is as good as fresh, but not sure if that person or anyone can say it with authority that it can be done if the cheese has been whisked or rather mix properly after it has been broght back to room temperature.
