Eggnog and cheesecake are two favorite treats this time of year, so why not combine them for a terrific dessert? Cheesecake may seem to be an intimidating thing to make, but these eggnog cheesecake bites from Tip Hero are delicious, adorable and easy to make.
24 Oreo cookie pieces, cookie part only
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
3/4 cup egg nog
1 tablespoon rum
3 (8oz) packages cream cheese, softened at room temperature
whipped cream, for garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 325°F. Grind up the cookie pieces in a food processor. Combine with the melted butter and press into the bottom of a 7×11″ baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes and set aside to cool.
While the crust is cooling preheat the oven to 425°F. Blend the remaining ingredients in a food processor until it is completely smooth. Once the crust has cooled pour the batter on top of the crust and bake for 10 minutes.
Lower the temperature to 250°F and bake for 30 minutes. The inside should be slightly jiggly and the outer rims should have puffed up. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before cutting and serving. You can top these with dollops of whipped cream if so desired.
