Cheesecakes can be made ahead of time. Cool, but do not remove from rings. Refrigerate up to 2 days. When ready to serve, wrap each ring in warm towel; let stand 1 min. or until ring can easily be lifted off. Place cheesecake on microwaveable serving plate. Microwave on HIGH 20 to 30 sec. or until cheesecake is warmed. For longer storage, individually wrap unmolded cheesecakes and freeze up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in refrigerator, then warm in microwave just before serving.
