I used to be an eggnog fiend when I was younger. I couldn’t get enough of the stuff. Then as I got older and had kids it just seemed like I was the only person in the crowd that was interested so I stopped buying it. This year Kevin told me he really likes eggnog. How do I not know these things??? So immediately so many eggnog ideas ran through my head. I literally made a list;
For whatever reason I have been anti-pumpkin pie this year. I mean I love it but, well I just wanted to be different. For Thanksgiving I made Pumpkin Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. I hadn’t come up with dessert for Christmas yet and that was where the eggnog fit into my little plan. Replace pumpkin pie with eggnog custard pie..hhmmmm yes that sounded mighty tasty!
This recipe is super easy. I was even a tad ummmm, well, I cheated and didn’t even make the effort to make pie crust. Good ol’ frozen pie crust at my house this Christmas. I had an epic fail with trying to make homemade dinner rolls and I just couldn’t face the KitchenAid right then *sigh* So it came together in just a few minutes. Everyone agreed it was a great pie so this recipe is going into my holiday bank of go to menu ideas.
