How to make it

For Spiced Graham Cracker Crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees (F). Line a 12 cavity cupcake tin with cupcake liners and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs, salt, sugar, melted butter, ground nutmeg, and ground cinnamon. Mix until fully combined. The mixture should be the texture of wet sand.
  3. Use the bottom of a clean cup to firmly press about 1-1 1/2 tablespoons of the crumb mixture into each liner.
  4. Bake the crusts for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven and allow them cool completely.

For Egg Nog Cheesecake:

  1. Turn the oven down to 300 degrees (F).
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar together on low speed until fully combined and smooth.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well and scraping down the sides of the bowl between each addition.
  4. Add the egg nog, vanilla, ground nutmeg, and ground cinnamon. Mix until fully combined.
  5. Fill each liner up almost to the top.
  6. Bake the cheesecakes for 15 minutes. Turn the oven off and allow the cheesecakes to sit in the oven for 30 minutes. Crack the oven door open and allow sit until cooled to room temperature.
  7. Transfer cheesecakes to the fridge until ready to serve.

For Whipped Cream:

  1. In a medium bowl using a hand mixer beat the heavy cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Be sure not to overmix. You can add the nutmeg and cinnamon into the whipped cream or sprinkle it on top. I sprinkled it on top.
  2. You can add a dollop of whipped cream to each Mini Egg Nog Cheesecake or you can add the whipped cream to a piping bag with a piping tip and pipe your desired amount on top.
