For the crust:
¼cupsalted butter, melted
¼cuppacked light brown sugar
1teaspoon ground cardamom
1 ½cups graham cracker crumbs
For the filling:
16ouncescream cheese, at room temperature
½cuppacked light brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 325℉. Line a 9-inch square pan with aluminum foil, letting the foil hang over the sides of the pan.
Mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, cardamom, and graham cracker crumbs. Pat the mixture down into the prepared pan to form a crust. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl using an electric handheld mixer, beat together the cream cheese, brown sugar, eggs, nutmeg, and vanilla extract on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add the eggnog and beat for another 30 seconds.
Pour the filling over top of the baked crust and then bake for another 35-40 minutes. The edges should be slightly golden brown and the center should be almost set. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool for 1 hour before moving to the refrigerator to chill for another 3 hours or until fully chilled.
When ready to serve, pull the bars out of the pan using the overhanging foil as a handle and slice into 16 bars using a sharp knife. Rinse the knife with hot water and wipe dry between each cut for clean-edged bars. Serve with whipped cream. Enjoy!
