How To Make Eggnog Cheesecake

How To Make Eggnog Cheesecake:

Heat oven to 325 and mix together graham crackers and 2 tablespoons white sugar in a medium bowl. Add melted butter and mix well. Press into a 10″ spring-form pan. Bake for 10 minutes and cool. 

With a mixer, combine cream cheese and white sugar. Beat well. Add flour, eggs, eggnog and vanilla. Beat well. Fold into prepared crust and spread evenly. 

Add a pan of water to the bottom rack of your oven. Bake cheesecake for 44-50 minutes or until edges are set and the middle is a little jiggly. My edges were set about 2″ from the edge. Cool before refrigerating overnight.

Loosen the edges of the pan with a knife and remove the pan collar. Place whipped topping in a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe whipped topping onto the outside edge of the cheesecake and sprinkle with ground nutmeg. Slice, wiping the knife after each slice, and serve.
