Pretty sure I was in the zone.
You know, the "what are we having for dinner million thoughts in your head" zone?
I'm not the only one
Tell me I'm not the only one!
Composing myself, I looked up and there, in front of my eyes was EGG NOG.
Tis the season.
The creamy, eggy, sweet and nutmegy season.
I love this time of year.
Why do they only sell egg nog in the fall/winter? I mean eggs are sold year round?!
I think we should start a protest.
What do you think happened next?
Oh, you're so wrong, I didn't walk away. That thought briefly crossed my mind because I can and have made my own nog.
But it was there.
GLARING at me.
How could I resist?
I brought it home and clearly labeled it "MOM'S" (meaning if you even THINK about touching this I will hunt you down and torture you as only a mom can do)
I poured myself a drink and I knew the rest was only to be used for this:
Cheesecake + Egg Nog = LOVE
Using this shortbread cookies recipe I added freshly grated nutmeg into the mix for a more festive flare and then crushed them all up so that I could have a shortbread crust.
(ya crazy right....make cookies to use them as crust - THE ZONE)
You could certainly use graham crackers or other cookies if you desire.
The recipe was inspired by a recipe found on Martha Stewart's website (pfft of course it was)
Trust me, if you love cheesecake and you have a fondness for the nog this is the perfect dessert for you!
