I found this on Pinterest. This recipe was great! I do NOT like eggnog, but my husband and his family love it so I made it for a Christmas function. This cheesecake was a huge hit! (i even loved it too!) I read the other comments and made some changes. In the crust, I doubled the butter and for the cheesecake I added 1 tsp of Rum extract & 1 tsp of Vanilla extract & a few sprinkles of Nutmeg. This really helped with the flavor and it wasn't too strong. I will definitely be making this again!
