Wilcox Family Farms Eggnog Cheesecake
It is thought that eggnog was originally a 17th-century
punch made in England with milk, eggs and ale or wine
that was given a new twist with the use of rum (grog) by
American colonists. Over time, the popular wintertime
egg grog became known as eggnog. Wilcox Farms reports
that this eggnog dessert recipe is often requested.
