As the name says, this a SUPER easy eggnog cheesecake. It is also VERY rich. I suppose this could be lightened up by using fat free cream cheese, milk and possibly eggnog (if it exists, not sure on that one). Pressing the Pirouette cookies into the sides of the cake makes for a beautiful presentation on any holiday table. For an even prettier touch, tie a festive ribbon around the cake before presenting it to your guests or family. Recipe comes from "More Joys of Jello" cookbook. Cook time includes chill time.
