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.
Reduce oven to 300°F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan.
Cheesecake can be baked ahead of time. Cool completely, then wrap securely in plastic wrap followed by foil. Freeze up to 2 months. Thaw wrapped cheesecake in refrigerator overnight.
