No Bake Eggnog Pie

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.

Eggnog pie is an easy recipe with only 4 ingredients; it’s perfect for Christmas or even Thanksgiving!

Ingredients in Eggnog Cream Pie

This pie has only 4 ingredients: pie crust, instant pudding mix, egg nog, 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?)

How to make Eggnog Pie

  • Make your crust – cool it if using a pastry pie crust.
  • Make the freshly whipped cream.
  • Whisk pudding mix and eggnog, then fold in whipped cream.
  • Place in pie crust and chill.
  • Top the pie with more whipped cream before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Use only dairy-based eggnog for best results. Instant pudding needs the proteins in milk to set up properly.
  • For a no bake pie, use a graham cracker, shortbread, or Oreo crust.


Can eggnog pie be frozen?

Only freeze this pie if you make it with Cool Whip in place of fresh whipped cream.

How long does eggnog pie last?

This will only keep about 24 hours so it’s best to make it the same day you plan to serve it.

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

Recipe Notes

  • You can use sugar-free pudding. You’ll want to use 1.5 ounce size for sugar-free or 3.4-3.9 ounces for regular instant.
  • Be sure to reserve some of the freshly whipped cream or cool whip for the top of the pie – you’re only adding 1 cup to the pudding.
  • Use only dairy-based eggnog or the pudding won’t set up.

  1. Jan 6th, 2019: I had Oreo no-bake pie crusts to use, and I used butterscotch pudding instead of vanilla bcs it was all I had. And So Was Born…….BUTTERNOG PIE!! So good!!. I will make egg nog pie next year, but the stores are out of egg nog now. Thanks, Dorothy, for this recipe. It’s an instant favorite.

  2. I have an answer for you, for the red and green candies! Separate them — red for Valentine’s Day, green for St. Patrick’s! 😛
    ALSO, egg nog bread pudding is amazing and wonderful. Just sub it in for the dairy component, and use whatever bread you feel best. [cinnamon raisin works great; as do Hawaiian rolls or other sweet items]
