It seems like each season has a few flavors that really define that time of the year. October, for example, flaunts the flavors of candy corn, caramel and maple. November is full of everything pumpkin spiced, and December welcomes peppermint, gingerbread and none other than everyone’s favorite holiday drink: eggnog!
We think it would be a crying shame if eggnog just stayed in drink form because it can be mixed into so many things to produce a rich, creamy flavor.
You could always just run to the store and pick up a carton of eggnog, but since we’re huge believers in making things from scratch, take the extra time and mix up a batch of your own.
We dare you to only eat one slice of this cheesecake. Just one!
