Bourbon Eggnog Cheesecake with a Gingersnap Crust

 

I suppose I shouldn’t eat it for breakfast, since it has bourbon in it and I don’t need a bourbon buzz at 7am…but you only live once they say… and if eating boozy cheesecake for breakfast is wrong, I don’t want to be right…

but seriously, this is the best boozy cheesecake I’ve ever made.  The reason I love cheesecake so much, is that you can put just about anything in one, and it will taste amazing.  

what’s your favorite cheesecake flavor?  and what type of booze would you add?  

I hope you love this recipe as much as I do! Leave me a comment below if you make it!  Be sure to pin the image to save it to your Pinterest boards!
