I made this recipe with a couple adjustments for a party and it was a big hit! I added a teaspoon of rum extract to the filling to amp up the eggnog flavor. For the crust, I used 1.5 cups of ground ginger snaps, four tablespoons of melted butter, and three teaspoons sugar. I used a 9x9 since I couldn't find my 9x13. You may need more crust mixture in a larger pan depending on how thick you want the crust. Everyone loved the filling and people who said they don't like eggnog said they loved the bars. I'll be making this again for Christmas!
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!
