Eggnog Cream Cheese Bars

It's that time of the year! Eggnog time! Made these for my little man cause he loves both cream cheese and eggnog - perfect mix.
crust:
2 c gingerbread crumbs (I used gingersnaps)
1/2 c butter (melted)
filling:
8oz softened cream cheese
1/2 c eggnog
1 tbsp flour
1/2 c sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
1 tsp rum extract
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Crush gingersnaps until you have fine crumbs, combine them with your melted butter and mix until moist. Press crumbs into a 9x13" pan (you can use a smaller pan for a thicker bar). Bake for 10-12 minutes.
While your crust is browning, mix together cream cheese, eggnog, flour and sugar. Add egg and yolk - mix completely. Add rum extract and nutmeg - stir to blend.
Pour eggnog mix into baked crust and put back in oven for another 25 minutes until set -when it doesn't jiggle anymore.
Allow it to cool before cutting into bars. Keep refrigerated.

These look quite yummy. I wonder if the recipe would change a lot by making it allergy friendly.

Gingersnaps, eggnog and cream cheese? These are amazing!

If you don't mind, I'd love if you'd link these up (and any other dessert creations) on Sugar & Slice Sunday link party. Each week Sunday-Thursday.
