I don’t really love eggnog as a drink but I adore it in baked goods. Eggnog ice cream is mind blowing, those eggnog chocolate chip cookies I shared last week were delish, and this eggnog cheesecake is perfection!
I made this recipe last year for Thanksgiving, and it was a serious hit. I never got the chance to share it and decided I definitely needed to put this on your radar for your Christmas baking! It is really such a lovely cheesecake and has such incredible flavor.
In addition to sharing this recipe, I also want to share my last amazing giveaway of the year! I also think this is my best giveaway yet! Ann Perry Designs is Grandbaby Cakes‘ apron sponsor. I adore her incredibly modern yet classic aprons, and this week, you have a chance to win one of your choice this holiday season!!
