Points To Know:
- If you don’t have a food processor to ground the biscuits, you can simply put them in a ziplock bag, then run over it with a rolling pin several times until the biscuits are crushed.
- If you are not a fan of Graham crackers biscuits, you can use digestive biscuits instead or any other plain biscuits that are similar. Or you can use any other crust base of your choice.
- When mixing the filling, you need to be gentle and use a spatula. Make sure to not overmix it as well because it will cause the cake to crack.
- If you prefer to use homemade caramel sauce, you can definitely use it, you just have to make sure that it’s cooled down properly before you add it to the cheesecake filling and the topping because if it’s hot, it will ruin the cream.
How Can I Store Rolo Cheesecake?
You can definitely store this rolo cheesecake in the fridge for up to 3 days. If your cheesecake is already sliced, then you simply have to wrap the slices in a plastic wrap gently and cover them with foil, then put them in a heavy container.
If your cheesecake is not sliced, then you just have to wrap it with plastic wrap and cover it completely with a piece of foil, then you can freeze it.
If it’s sliced, the slices will be good for up to 4 weeks, if it is not sliced then the cheesecake could last you up to 4 months.
I highly recommend that you don’t leave the toppings on if you want to freeze this cheesecake because they won’t freeze well, so if you have any leftovers, you can use a knife to scrape off the toppings before freezing them, then you can simply decorate them again when you want to serve it
To defrost it, you just have to transfer it from the freezer to the fridge and let it sit for at least 8 to 12 hours. Some cheesecakes might take longer, so if you need to serve them the next day, make sure to place them in the fridge at night so it can have enough time to thaw.
Can I Use Philadelphia To Make Rolo Cheesecake?
Absolutely! If you don’t have cream cheese or if you don’t want to use it, you can definitely substitute it with Philadelphia cheese instead or Mascarpone cheese. Just make sure it is full fat because it’s what will enable your cheesecake to set. If it’s not full fat, the cheesecake will be runny and won’t set fully.
Why My Rolo Cheesecake Is Not Setting?
If your cheesecake didn’t set, it’s probably because you didn’t whip the ingredients enough. Remember that you need to whip them until their become smooth but they can still hold their shape.
You can test if your cream is whipping enough by scooping it into a spoon and then flipping it so the cream is facing the bottom. Tap the spoon against the bowl a few times. If the cream falls, it means that you didn’t whip it enough, you need to give it more time. It doesn’t fall, it means you are good to go!
Another important part that will make your cheesecake sets is that your creams need to be full fat, and you need to make sure you let the cheesecake sits in the fridge for at least an overnight. If for some reason your cheesecake did not set, it’s completely okay, you can place it in the freezer and turn it into ice cream!
This rolo cheesecake is a treat, you will get nothing but compliments from everyone who tastes it. Nice and easy to make the night before and leave it to set overnight while you rest for the rest of the day.
