Expert Tips

  • Make it easy for your guests to help themselves to this savory cheesecake from your appetizer buffet. Cut a 4-inch diameter circle in center of cheesecake before cutting into wedges, so guests can easily cut short wedges from 2 rings of cheesecake instead of longer wedges.
  • Arrange chopped green, yellow or red bell pepper, chopped green and ripe olives and chopped nuts in wedge shapes on top of cheesecake. A cheesecake sampler with lots of flavor options!
