I made this cheesecake to celebrate my four years of food blogging. Tis the season to eat or drink egg nog! I hope you enjoy this wonderful cheesecake as much as I had the pleasure of making it. Happy Holidays!
Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and nutmeg. Add melted butter and it well. Place into a springform pan. Form crust on the bottom and halfway up the sides of the pan. Place in freezer.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine cream cheese and sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix well. Add cornstarch and combine. Mix vanilla, sour cream, egg nog and rum, blending well. Place in springform pan and bake 1 hour – 1 hour 15 minutes until center is about set. I baked my cheesecake for approximately 1 hour 10 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes and remove ring from springform pan. Cool completely and place in refrigerator.
Place everything in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil and boil for 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Cool. Pour on top of cheesecake. Serve and enjoy!
