No Bake Eggnog Cheesecake

No Bake Eggnog Cheesecake

Save this recipe for the holidays, 'cause when your oven is full of roasted turkey or glazed ham and all the trimmings, it's nice to 
know you can make a cheesecake that doesn't need any baking!

Serves: 9

Chilling Time: 3 hr
What You'll Need:

3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup (½ stick) butter, melted
1 (0.25 ounces) envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1 (8 ounces) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup eggnog
1 cup (½ pint) heavy cream

What To Do:

In small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, nutmeg, and butter; mix well. Press into bottom of 8-inch-square baking dish; set aside.

In small saucepan, combine gelatin and water; stir over low heat 3 to 4 minutes, until dissolved. Remove from heat; set aside.

In large bowl, with an electric beater on medium speed, beat cream cheese and the remaining 1/4 cup sugar until well blended. Stir in dissolved gelatin and eggnog until well blended. Refrigerate 8 to 10 minutes, until slightly thickened.

In a medium-sized bowl, whip cream. Fold whipped cream into eggnog mixture, then pour over prepared crust, cover, and chill 3 to 4 hours before serving.


For an extra-special holiday look, sprinkle the top with some additional nutmeg.
