Eggnog. You either love it or you hate it. There are very few people I’ve encountered that like it “a little.” Unlike gingerbread or peppermint…eggnog is eggnog. Kind of no matter where you put it.

I fall in the “LOVE IT!” category for eggnog. I’ve loved it since I was a little girl. I remember getting a carton of it as soon as it was available in the store and enjoying little glasses of it with my Dad throughout the holiday. Which is why it astonishes me that (1) Jordan doesn’t really like it (I guess she’s her father’s daughter) and (2) that I’ve never made dessert with it before.

I knew that, this year, I had to remedy that! As soon as I saw this pie I knew a pie would be one of the things I made with eggnog this year.

And wouldn’t you know…it was the only thing? I swear, where did the time go? I need another week to post all my ideas for Christmas. If I don’t get my extra week you’ll either be getting red and green treats way into 2013 or I’ll have to save them and hope to remember to use them next year. {Please tell me I’m not the only one who does that?}

Easy Eggnog Pie - this cream pie recipe has only 4 ingredients! It's light and airy and tastes just like eggnog in a pie crust.

This pie has only 4 ingredients: pie crust, pudding mix, eggnog, and whipped cream. That’s IT! It comes together in no time at all, and if you wanted to you could make it a no-bake pie by using an Oreo or Shortbread Crust instead.

I made my own whipped cream from heavy whipping cream, but you can also use Cool Whip if you want. No judgements here! 99% of the time I do use Cool Whip. The pudding mix and the whipped cream make the pie super light. It’s like eating air. Which has no calories. So this pie has no calories! (Right?)

It’s a very noggy pie. If you like eggnog…well, you’ll like this pie. If you don’t…well. Maybe use chocolate milk. I bet that would be goooooooood.

Eggnog Pie

Yield: 8 servings

This EASY Eggnog Pie recipe has only 4 ingredients and is super light and airy and perfect for Christmas!


Ingredients:


  • 1 prepared pie crust, either frozen or from a pack of two, or my homemade crust recipe

  • 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream (or 8 ounces Cool Whip)

  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar, optional

  • 1 box vanilla instant pudding (sugar-free is fine), 1.5 ounce size for sugar-free or 3.4-3.9 ounces for regular instant

  • 1 2/3 cups eggnog (use only dairy-based eggnog or the pudding won't set up)

  • Ground nutmeg, optional (for garnish)


Directions:


  1. If using a refrigerated crust, unroll and place in a 9" pie plate. Poke holes in the bottom of the crust with the tines of a fork. Bake crust according to package directions. Cool before filling. (You can also use this crust, pressed into a 9" pan, poked with the tines of a fork and baked at 400°F for 8-10 minutes.)

  2. If making fresh whipped cream, place cold whipping cream in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Add powdered sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Chill until ready to use.

  3. Place pudding mix and eggnog in a large bowl. Stir until no lumps remain. Let set for 5 minutes. Fold in 1 cup of the prepared whipped cream (or Cool Whip). Pour into cooled pie crust. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours before finishing.

  4. Before serving, top with remaining whipped cream or Cool Whip and grated nutmeg (optional). Store in refrigerator.
