Instructions

Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F
  2. Prepare your 9x9 baking dish, butter the bottom and sides, then cut out parchment paper to fit the bottom of the dish and place on top of the buttered bottom
  3. Put 3tbs butter in a medium sized mixing bowl and set aside.
  4. In a medium sauce pan, brown remaining 5tbs of butter. Melt the butter over medium heat, stirring constantly. It will get bubbly and the color will change to a darker golden brown and the smell will become slightly nutty. Make sure to stir constantly so it doesn’t burn. Once browned pour over the remaining 3tbs in the mixing bowl and stir until the butter is completely melted.
  5. Add brown sugar, salt and vanilla extract to butter and whisk until combined.
  6. Add egg and whisk until smooth, 20-30 seconds. Let mixture rest for 3 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and nutmeg.
  8. Once 3 minutes is up add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix until combined.
  9. Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for 18 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  10. 10. While the crust is baking, prepare the filling.

Filing

  1. Beat cream cheese, sugar eggnog and vanilla in mixer until well blended, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add eggs one at a time, making sure each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  3. Pour into prepared crust.
  4. Bake at 300°F for 45-50 minutes or until completely set. You may need to let the oven cool down a bit if it was just baking the crust at 375°F.
  5. After it is done baking, let it come to room temperature and then refrigerate for at least 2 hours for eating.
  6. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Notes: *I like to use bread flour because it makes baked goods more chewy, but you can use regular white flour too!
