Eggnog Cheescake Bars

Here is another yummy recipe that I tried on New Year's Eve. I love eggnog, so anything that I see with that ingredient in the recipe peaks my attention... These were pretty easy to throw together and were very tasty!

Eggnog Cheesecake Bars
(recipe found at www.bettycrocker.com)

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup blanched whole almonds, finely chopped
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs

1/2 cup blanched whole almonds, finely chopped, toasted

Heat oven to 350. In large bowl, stir crust ingredients until well blended. Press mixture in bottom of ungreased 9x13 inch pan. Bake 8 minutes. In clean large bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until softened. Gradually beat in granulated sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, the nutmeg, cream and vanilla. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until creamy. Pour mixture over crust. Bake 30-35 minutes or until center is set. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup toasted almonds; press in slightly. Cool 1 1/2 hours. Store covered in refrigerator.
