I wanted to make a delicious version my Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Cups so when I found a tube of Gingerbread Cookie dough from Pillsbury I knew they would make a delicious base to a sweet eggnog cheesecake.

All I had to do what cut little discs of cookie dough from the roll for the crust.

Have I mentioned how easy this recipe is??

Bake them for just 20-25 minutes and let them cool.

I added just a tiny dash of rum extract to these cute little cheesecakes to give them that traditional eggnog flavor.

The cookie crust is soft and tender and pairs perfectly with the subtle eggnog cheesecake flavor.

Dress them up a little more with a dollop of whip cream on top and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

    I just made these for a party, with a soft ginger cookie recipe I found…. SO GOOD. I might add a tbs of flour next time to make the cheesecakes a little more dense. Other than that, amazing!

    I am making these tomorrow for Christmas Eve dessert. I didn’t find the tube gingerbread dough but found the rolled out flats and will attempt to use those. Will cut to fit the bottom of muffin pan and layer until desired thickness. Anyone else use this? How did it turn out?! Thank you and excited to try!

    i’m going to make these using ginger snap cookies as a shortcut for the crust. I have made Petite Cheesecakes many times and used vanilla wafers for those.

    Are these done in regular size muffin cups or little baby mini cups – they sound like a wonderful “Grandma loves you” treat….yuummmmm….
