Cheesecake is a favorite dessert all year long. When it comes to the holidays you can add some season fun to the classic with this delicious Mini Eggnog Cheesecakes Recipe. It takes a creamy cheesecake recipe and adds in a bit of eggnog and nutmeg to give it that special “eggnoggy” twist. If you’re crunched for time and don’t want to make your own graham cracker crumbs (even though they are pretty easy to do) most grocery stores will also sell small graham cracker pie shells and you could use those.
