Eggnog Cranberry Pie Recipe

Here's an elegant pie that says “holiday” in every bite. The tart cranberries contrast nicely with the rich gelatin-thickened eggnog. It's a repeat dessert at our house.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + chilling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 6 tablespoons cold water, divided
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 pastry shell (9 inches), baked
  • 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1-3/4 cups eggnog
  • 2 tablespoons rum or 1 teaspoon rum extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water until smooth; stir in cranberries. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Cool for 15 minutes. Pour into pastry shell; set aside.
  • 2. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over remaining water; let stand for 5 minutes. Cook and stir over low heat, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved. Gradually stir in eggnog and rum.
  • 3. Refrigerate for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Fold in whipped cream; pour over cranberry layer. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared eggnog.
