Ingredients

Cheesecake:

Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups crushed gingersnaps
  • 4 tbsp. melted butter

Instructions

Gingersnap Crust:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the crushed gingersnaps and melted butter in a bowl and mix well until a dough forms.
  • Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper and press the crust firmly in the bottom.
  • Bake the crust for 10 minutes and let cool fully.

Cheesecake Bars:

  • Combine the cream cheese and sugar in a bowl; beat for about 1 minute.
  • Add the eggs, rum extract and nutmeg. Beat for another minute.
  • Add the eggnog and flour and mix until thoroughly combined. Pour the mixture over the gingersnap crust.
  • Place the pan in a larger pan filled with about 1-2 inches of water. This will keep the cheesecake from cracking.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, or until the center is set.
  • Let cool for one hour and then refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
  • Slice the bars and garnish with fresh grated nutmeg and whipped cream.
