Today I wanted to bring in a little bit of the holidays. As I think back to childhood, there was always one particular drink that I looked forward to each year during Christmas – Eggnog. I remember it being a huge treat that we would to get to partake of this sweet nectar for only a few weeks out of the year. Some people dislike the taste of eggnog, but personally I love it. Today, I mix it up with my absolutely favorite dessert – Cheesecake!
- Cream Cheese, 3 pkgs
- 1 c Sugar
- 3 Tbsp Flour
- 2 Eggs
- 1 c Eggnog
- 2 tsp Rum Extract
- 1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
- 1/2 tsp Groung Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
I purchased a ready-made Graham Cracker crust, but you can use 1 stick of butter and about a cup and a half of Graham Cracker crumbs to make a crust also.
Step 1: Combine cream cheese, sugar, flour, eggs, eggnog, rum extract, ground ginger, ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg in a large mixing bowl.
Step 2: Mix on high until mixture becomes smooth and creamy. Pour into crust.
Step 3: Bake in your oven at 325 Degrees for 45-50 minutes. Let cool completely and sit in the refrigerator overnight. Garnish with berries and serve optional with whipped topping. This eggnog cheesecake will definitely satisfy your craving for something sweet!
