cheesecake crisis

nooodle | Jul 29, 2012 11:29 PM

i baked a cheesecake like i normally do but used a gluten free biscuit(cookie) for the base. i was rushed and cooked it shorter then normal but left it too cool in the oven... the crust was way "wetter" when i added the butter.. i normally just chill the crust, ive baked them before first but find the result was the same but with less effort... so i chilled this one and it should of been baked.... anyway,after cooling i realized the bottom is undercooked, for a mess of reasons or my bath leaked into the pan.. (shouldn't of rushed myself) and i had planned on freezing them for a party next week. there's not much i can do at this stage now that i stuck it in the freezer.

so ive read on here other people have frozen them and served them cold (ice cream cake-ish.) is there anything else i could of done, or still could do? i thought maybe even after it freezes a bit scrape off the crust and freeze it seperatly, toast it when its time to eat it and crumble it over the top with the topping???
or just hope its not horrible at time of eating

ugh! when i think im getting good at something i get cocky and mess it up!
