If you are a cheesecake lover and delight in the rich creamy taste of a glass of delicious eggnog....you are going to LOVE this recipe!!! It's simple and easy to make! Extremely difficult to mess up, unless you forget to set the timer, or something. It's perfect flavoring and texture...as is. I do highly suggest and recommend NOT compromising on the quality of eggnog you use. USE the the "good" stuff!!! I will mention it is a bit tricky to cut, so be patient. It's well worth it! OH...also, if your'e new to making this kind of desert...you'll know it's done if your "wet" knife comes clean after inserting into the center before removing it from the oven. It was well worth the cost of the recipe book JUST for this one recipe! It's become a Christmas tradition in our family. ENJOY!

Great recipe!! And so simple too! These were a hit at home and at the office. These were plenty sweet, and the eggnog doesn't over power the taste. I followed the recipe exactly, and these really are the best the day after!!

I thought that the cheese cake came out more golden than a usual cheese cake. plus there was not enough sweet taste so it tasted more like grilled cheese. I fixed it with caramel sauce to add the needed sweetness. Maybe the recipe should call for one less egg and one more packet of cheese plus more sugar, like a cup of sugar instead of 1/2. =] Thank you.

This is an fast, easy, and not expensive to make. Almost all the ingredients are what we normally have on hand. I only had to add eggnog and cream cheese to my shopping list. This is a new holiday favorite.

This has become my signature holiday dessert for get-togethers and family functions. The flavor is so unique that even folks who don't like eggnog enjoy them.
