Simply Delicious Silknog (Eggnog) Cheesecake

For the last four days I’ve been decorating the house for Christmas while my daughter and husband are off on a mini-vacation together. Somewhere between listening to Alabama sing Christmas in Dixie and hanging the last stocking over our pretend Christmas fire place, it happened. I got the urge to have Eggnog.

As I headed to the store this morning to purchase a quart of the Silknog (which I prefer because it offers the flavors and smells of the season with much less sugar and calories … aka GUILT-free-ish).

Then it dawned on me. While Eggnog is delicious, Eggnog cheesecake is like biting into a piece of heaven. Later tonight my husband and daughter should be arriving home from the trip, and I thought it would be the perfect way to kickoff the start of our holiday season together.

If you find yourself craving a tasty holiday treat that’s not typically served around the holidays, the Eggnog Cheesecake recipe below will not disappoint.


  • 9-inch deep-dish graham cracker crust
  • •2 – 8 oz regular cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Silk Nog
  • 2 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F
  2. Beat cream cheese, sugar, flour, and nutmeg until light and fluffy, scraping sides of bowl
  3. Beat in vanilla and Eggnog (note, adding Eggnog 1/4 cup at a time as you mix it in helps to avoid sloshing disasters)
  4. Beat in eggs, one at a time
  5. Pour mixture into prepared crust
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes until set.
  7. Let cool completely
  8. Chill and serve

Happy Holidays!
