Eggnog Cheesecake: Rich eggnog meets smooth and creamy cheesecake in this decadent Christmas dessert. Your favorite holiday beverage in cheesecake form! 

Eggnog Cheesecake

Christmas Eve in our house isn’t anything fancy. It usually consists of:


1. Frantically wrapping all those presents you swore you’d have wrapped by December 1st 😉

2.  A casual supper like tacos or sloppy joes

3. Tons of cookies for dessert

4. Opening one present. If you’re super lucky it’s a game or book to make the night pass more quickly!

5. Cheese & crackers, chips & dip, and eggnog for a night snack

 

The smell and flavor of eggnog just remind me of Christmas Eve! Egg nog lover? Then check out this Eggnog Cheesecake for your Christmas day festivities!

 

It consists of an easy graham cracker crust filled with a rich creamy cheesecake that is just to die for! It’s made with real egg nog so the flavor is spot on. I like to dust mine with extra nutmeg on top for that warming note we all love!
