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.
makes two pies
2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding mix (4-serving size)
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 quart (4 cups) eggnog
1 12-oz. tub cool whip, thawed and divided
2 9-inch graham cracker crusts
Add pudding mix and nutmeg to a large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Pour in eggnog and mix on low speed of an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Fold in half of the cool whip until well combined. Pour mixture evenly into graham cracker crusts. Cover and refrigerate 6 hours or until set. Serve with remaining cool whip. Garnish with a dusting of nutmeg if desired.
