"Super fast & easy, very delicious. Creamy, sets up well & holds it shape when cutting. Not overly spiced, a bit sweet & mild. You wouldn't necessarily know it was eggnog in the flavoring. Our favorite eggnog is southern comfort vanilla spice flavor & since jayzmom mentioned it was a good choice, it is what I used. Would make again, always have the ingredients on hand around the holidays."

"This is the ONLY pie my 7 year old will eat. We made it 4 times last year and he became so obsessed with it that I told him if remembered the recipe he could make it himself except for the oven part. He had it memorized in 10 minutes. This will forever be on our holiday baking list!!! *I will definitely have to try the flavored eggnog this year.*"

"I've been making this pumpkin pie for several years now, and I am just getting around to rating it. This pie is SO EASY to make and really tasty. I make it primarily because people always want pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, and this one is so easy. I usually try to use one of the flavored eggnogs instead of just the regular - I find that it adds a little extra flavor. This year I used cinnamon eggnog; last year, I used sugar cookie eggnog."

"i made this one for thanksgiving i was amongst the few to try it and while im not impressed i think it was mostly the strange texture or the unfamiliar taste i would strongly suggest not to try it. It was very differant and it was mostly just blah however im going to get the certified chef in my family to try it and tell me what its missing and will repost about it later today"
