Our #1 Tip

Make sure to use full-، cottage cheese. Not only will it make your cheesecake cups luscious and creamy, but they will taste better too.

Non، cottage cheese has a higher water content, which will make the filling more watery. And, if you plan to freeze them, they may be “icy.”


Store your peanut ،er cottage cheesecake cups in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Tips & Notes

  • Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • Any nut ،er can be used in place of peanut ،er.
  • Cottage cheese: ،-free cottage cheese tends to be more watery than full-، cottage cheese, which will cause the cheesecake to become “icy” if frozen. We suggest using full ،.
