"Great Thanksgiving pie. The eggnog taste wasn't overpowering; the longer it sat, the less eggnog flavor came through. We omitted the nuts because we didn't have any and the pie was still great."

"this pie sums up the flavors of fall/winter wonderfully. After this pie, I'm not going to want to make a plain pumpkin pie ever again! I saved a few calories and used light eggnog and it still came out perfectly"

"Lovely Pie! Similar to Pumpkin Eggnog Pie but the nuts are great! However there are many people that do not like the nuts!"

"Delicious! The only change I make is minor - leaving out the cloves. This is a combination pie that actually works. My family is snobby about pumpkin pies and we ALL loved this. The eggnog is not noticeable it just makes the pumpkin better. Great smooth texture. If you are busy, use a frozen pie crust and crank these out easily!"

"I wasn't sure about this recipe because I am not a big fan of egg nog, however, the eggnog is very mild in this pie. It was absolutely wonderful, and I would definitely recommend it!"
