SO good! The perfect elegant, yet not too challenging holiday dessert. I had plenty of eggnog leftover from making my yearly eggnog Christmas cookies and wanted to make a cheesecake for a family Christmas celebration, so it made perfect sense.
I followed several different suggestions and made some minor adjustments to the original recipe. I will admit, that although I've made enough cheesecakes that I would say I'm a fairly experienced cheesecake baker I have never prepared my batter in a food processor so I was a little nervous but since I already had the processor out to make my crust I thought I'd give it a go, and it worked out great, plus I didn't dirty up my mixer!
The changes I made are as follows:
- for the crust I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- I upped the eggnog to 1 cup in the batter
- replaced the rum with 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg to batter
Also, unlike many of the users I did not use a waterbath, nor have I ever. The consistency was great and no cracks!
