Eggnog Cheesecake

 

Ingredients:

 

Gingersnap Crust

2 cups gingersnap crumbs

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1/4 cup unsalted butter melted

 

Eggnog Cheesecake Filling

24 oz full-fat cream cheese softened to room temperature

1 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch or 2 tablespoons flour

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

3/4 cup eggnog

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 tablespoons spiced rum or 1 teaspoon rum extract

3 large eggs whisked

hot water for the water bath

 

 

 

 

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350F (180C) degrees and position the oven rack on the bottom 1/3 of the oven.

Wrap the outside of a 9-inch springform pan in aluminum foil at least 3 times so that all the seems are covered and no areas are showing.

Gingersnap Crust

In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the gingersnap crumbs and brown sugar. Stir in the melted butter

Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.

Bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes. Then remove from the oven, leaving the oven turned on.

Cheesecake Filling

In a very large bowl, beat the cream cheese until soft. Turn down the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary.

Beat in the sugar, cornstarch and nutmeg.

With the mixer on low speed, mix in the vanilla extract, rum/rum extract, and eggnog.

Beat in the eggs, mixing only until just combined.

Place the cheesecake crust in the middle of a large roasting pan, then pour the cheesecake filling on top of the crust.

Pour the hot water into the roasting pan, so that there’s about 1/2-1 inch of water in the bottom of the roasting pan.

Place the roasting pan with the cheesecake inside in the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until the top looks almost set, except for in the very middle.

Remove from the oven. Cool the cheesecake in the water bath until room temperature.

Then remove the springform pan from the roasting pan, cover the cheesecake, and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.

When ready to serve, trace around the edges of the cheesecake with a very thin knife. Then unclamp the springform pan.

Optionally, sprinkle with a little extra nutmeg and dollop each slice with whipped cream.
