  3. Cover with foil and set in the freezer for about 3 hours to firm up and then transfer to the fridge for a couple more hours.
Recipe Notes

I used a 7″ springform pan to make this cheesecake tall and pretty. If you use a larger pan, your layers and cake will be flatter/shorter.

Frozen fruit has a different water content and I’m not sure how it would work in this recipe. But if you do use frozen, thaw it first.

It should last about a week refrigerated and a month frozen. If frozen, set out at room temp for about 30 minutes. Slicing refrigerated (not frozen) is recommended.
