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

This EASY Eggnog Pie recipe has only 4 ingredients and is super light and airy and perfect for Christmas!
Servings 8 servings
Author Dorothy Kern


  • 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)


  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.

  1. Yay for your gig with Marie! I heart Marie Callender’s and I heart you and I heart this eggnog pie. And I know I’m weird, but I fall in the middle of the road, shade of gray area about eggnog. Sometimes I’m all for it, other times I won’t even think about the stuff, much less touch it. But don’t you worry, I’d be all over this pie no problem.

  2. I love eggnog and I love pie! This one looks awesome, Dorothy! And what a cool opportunity with Marie! You’ll do great–can’t wait to check it all out!

    Seems that all the guys in my family love egg nog, but the girls, not so much:)

  10. Congrats on the gig! Way to go!
    I love Egg Nog, but haven’t bought any yet… I must buy some tomorrow! This looks wonderful. I love how your crust turned out. Looks great!

  11. You know I adore eggnog, I’m hoping (praying) there’s still some in the store when I go tomorrow. This pie sounds like the perfect way to carry on my love. Oh and Marie, she and I have been friends almost as long as eggnog and me, well maybe not. I don’t think Marie’s as old as me. But her Pot Pies, yup, love them! Can’t wait to see what you’re posting over there!

  12. Congrats on the new gig! With the all crazy inventive pies you have on this blog, you are the girl for them.

  21. Congrats on the super cool gig with Marie Callender! I don’t think you’re the only one that makes more desserts than there is time to blog about. I was just going through my pictures and I still have projects from the summer I just haven’t gotten around to posting. One day:)

  36. Looks delish! I have leftover eggnog (what?!) and want to make this today. Question, what size box of vanilla pudding?

  38. This is not thick enough!  Maybe a large box of poudding or add gelatin or cook the pudding to a thick consistency.   Anyway the pie, as is, has a soupy finish after setting up over night.  So try the recommendations above!

  40. Jus a quick question – is there a reason you used sugar free pudding mix? I hate using anything with artificial sweetener in it and since we are using eggnog this is definitely not a low fat recipe – just wondering if this was a taste preference or if the sugar free was a necessity for texture, etc.?? Thanks!

  41. Did you use the 1oz pkg or 1.5 oz pkg of instant pudding?

    • I *think* it’s the 1.5 ounce if you’re using sugar free, or 3-4 ounce if you’re using regular instant. The directions on the box call for 2 cups milk on the boxes I use. I think different brands might be different sizes, so check the pudding instructions on the box just to be sure.

  42. Quick question:  It says to just stir the pudding with the eggnog until no lumps…so you don’t whip it up like pudding just substituting eggnog for milk?

  43. Made this pie (and the crust) today. The crust was my first successful pie crust yet. And I’ve made a number of them this year. So quick and easy. And tasty. The pie was super tasty too. We made ours with homemade eggnog that had booze in it. The pie didn’t set up right but that may have been more about my impatience than anything else. I’m making it again next weekend and I’ll be sure to let it set in the fridge for a nice long time. So so good!

  44. I absolutely LOVE eggnog… this looks delish!
