Eggnog Dip Recipe

I put together a cookbook of my grandma's Christmas recipes that includes this classic eggnog appetizer. Serve it as a dip with fresh fruit or drizzle it over cake for dessert.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling Cook: 10 min. + cooling YIELD:20 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups eggnog
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon rum extract, optional
  • Assorted fruit and pound cake cubes

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, combine the eggnog and cornstarch until smooth. Bring to a boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream. Cool completely.
  • 2. In a small bowl, beat whipping cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. Fold into eggnog mixture with extract if desired. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve with fruit and cake cubes. Yield: about 2-1/2 cups.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared eggnog.
