Eggnog Pie

When I start seeing eggnog in the store I know it’s Christmastime! I buy it up as soon as it hits the shelf! I love to put it in my coffee, heat it up like hot cocoa, drink it with a splash of spiced rum or just have it straight up. I love it!

This weekend I decided to make a pie with it! This recipe makes two pies but you can easily reduce it by half to just make one. The pie freezes beautifully so you might as well go ahead and make two! Throw that other one in the freezer and pull it out to take to the neighborhood Christmas party or serve on New Year’s.

Eggnog pie! This super easy recipe uses real eggnog and sets up like a no-bake cheesecake. This is a must-have for your Christmas dessert table!

  5. What on earth is cool whip? We don't have anything named this in Australia - what can I use as a substitute?

    3. Cool Whip is a brand of imitation whipped cream. You buy it frozen and let it thaw to use it.

  6. If I use real whipping cream, will it hold up if I freeze it?

    1. Not as well as whipped topping because whipped topping has a stabilizer in it

    1. I've found that if I "whip" cool whip in a recipe it can separate. If you used a beater to mix the cool whip into the pudding this may have happened. If you want to try again, follow the recipe and just "fold" the cool whip in, don't beat it in.
