Reviews for Contest-Winning Eggnog Pumpkin Pie
"Love this recipe, I will be making it again this year"
"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!"
"I made two of these this Thanksgiving. Everyone raved about them! They are so delicious!!"
