Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or use a silicone muffin mold.

Combine the graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated with butter.

6
Stir in the eggnog, vanilla extract, ground nutmeg, and ground cinnamon until well combined.
7
Pour the cheesecake filling over the graham cracker crusts in each muffin cup, filling them almost to the top.
8
Bake the mini cheesecakes in the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the edges are set and the centers are slightly jiggly.
9
Remove the cheesecakes from the oven and let them cool in the muffin tin for about 15 minutes.
10
Transfer the mini cheesecakes to a wire rack to cool completely.
11
Once the cheesecakes are cooled, refrigerate them for at least 2 hours or until they are thoroughly chilled and set.
12
Before serving, top each mini eggnog cheesecake with a dollop of whipped cream.
13
Sprinkle a pinch of ground nutmeg and cinnamon over the whipped cream for garnish.
