Family Tradition: Eggnog Pie

Drool.

This pie is so good! Every year for Thanksgiving my family makes eggnog pie because EVERYONE loves it. I happen to be of the opinion that strait eggnog is a bit heavy and strong, but this pie mixes that wonderful eggnog flavor with vanilla pudding and whip cream and what you get is a PERFECT eggnog flavor and texture. You must bring this to your Thanksgiving celebration this year. It will be a huge success.


Ingredients
1 lrg box (~ 4 to 5 oz.) vanilla pudding, cook and serve

3 c. eggnog
1 c. heavy whipping cream, whipped with 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar and ½ tsp. vanilla

Directions
1. Combine the pudding mix and eggnog in a sauce pan. Stirring constantly, cook until thickened (about 10 minutes) then cool.
2. Fold the whipped cream into the eggnog pudding mix and put into a baked pie shell of your choice (pastry, graham cracker, gingerbread cookie…)

note: if you have only a 3-oz. box, use only 2 c.eggnog.

  2. Help! I am getting ready to make the pie and all I have are the 3 oz boxes of cook and serve pudding. For the life of me I can not find how many ounces are in a large box. Thanks in advance!!

  3. If you only have a smaller box of pudding, then just use 2 c. of eggnog. It'll still be great!
