Eggnog Cheesecake

A classic, rich dessert deserves a classic, rich-flavored bourbon. Just in time for the holidays, this eggnog-reminiscent cheesecake will be an instant classic at any holiday gathering.

Servings: 8–12 slices


  • 3 tablespoons Maker’s Mark® Bourbon (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 cups finely ground cookies such as Biscoff® (graham crackers will work too)
  • 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1-1/3 cup sugar
  • Pinch nutmeg (adjust to taste)
  • Pinch cloves (adjust to taste)
  • Pinch cinnamon (adjust to taste)
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. For crust, stir together all ingredients and press onto bottom of a buttered 9.5-inch springform pan.
  2. Fill right away and chill at least 1 hour.
  3. For filling, preheat oven to 350°F.
  4. Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until fluffy and add eggs one at a time.
  5. Add vanilla and sugar, beating on low speed until everything is mixed, scraping sides to mix everything.
  6. Put springform pan into a shallow baking dish to protect from leakage.
  7. Pour filling into crust and bake in the middle of the oven for 45 minutes, or until cake is set 3 inches from edge but the center is still slightly wobbly when the pan is gently shaken.
  8. Leave in pan for 1 to 3 hours and then cool completely in the fridge.
