  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1-1/2 cups cranberries fresh or frozen


  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs about 16 squares
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted


  • 4 packages cream cheese 8 ounces each, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • In a large saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in cranberry juice until smooth. Add cranberries. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine cracker crumbs and sugar; stir in butter. Press onto the bottom of a greased 9-in. springform pan. Place pan on a baking sheet. Bake at 325° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add flour and beat well. Add eggs, beat on low just until combined. Add eggnog and vanilla; beat just until blended. Pour two-thirds of the filling over crust. Top with half of the cranberry mixture (cover and refrigerate remaining cranberry mixture). Carefully spoon remaining filling on top. Return pan to baking sheet.
  • Bake at 325° for 60-70 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer.
  • Refrigerate overnight. Remove sides of pan. Spoon remaining cranberry mixture over cheesecake. Refrigerate leftovers.
