What You’ll Need:
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup (½ stick) butter, melted
1 (0.25 ounces) envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1 (8 ounces) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup eggnog

In small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, nutmeg, and butter; mix well. Press into bottom of 8-inch-square baking dish; set aside.
In small saucepan, combine gelatin and water; stir over low heat 3 to 4 minutes, until dissolved. Remove from heat; set aside.
