The best part of Thanksgiving is the desserts, in my opinion. I love me good pumpkin, pecan, or apple pie…but today I have something new for you in case you are wanting to switch things up a bit! I was looking for a pie that used up one of my husband’s holiday favorites…eggnog, and ran across this recipe. I knew he’d love it right away! I had good intentions of making my own crust for this pie, but my time constraints on Sunday forced me to bust out the store bought version. It was still great, and I can’t wait to try it with a homemade pie crust!
The eggnog flavor is subtle, if you ask me. It’s a sure crowd pleaser, and is super simple!
Here is the link for the pies I shared with you last year. Enjoy 🙂
2 cups eggnog
1 cup milk
1 package (4.6 ounces) cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
1 tablespoon rum or 1/2 teaspoon rum extract
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 pastry shell (9 inches), baked
Whipped topping and additional ground nutmeg, optional
In a large saucepan, cook the eggnog, milk and pudding mix over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. Stir in rum and nutmeg. Pour pudding mixture into crust. Chill until set. Garnish with whipped topping and sprinkle with nutmeg if desired.
