Eggnog Cheesecake and a CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY!!!

eggnog cheesecake

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 Cakesapron 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!! 

Check out the recipe for this eggnog cheesecake and the giveaway rules below!!!
