Cranberry Eggnog Cheesecake

Teresa Jacobson


This was something I whipped up for Thanksgiving dinner. It came together so beautifully and is quite possibly the best cheesecake I've ever made! The eggnog is subtle but delicious and the cranberry is the perfect sweet/tart to enhance that eggnog flavor.
