"Question please--doesn't the pie crust need to be pre-baked and cooled?"

"Made this for Christmas this year and it was such a big hit my 20 yr old son went out and bought 6 boxes of French Vanilla pudding for me to have on hand. This will be a Christmas must make from now on! And the rest of the year too."

"This is a favorite in our home. Bonus is that we can make this all year around even when eggnog is not in season to buy in grocery store."

"I make this every year for Thanksgiving. It's easy to make and is so creamy and smooth. It's like custard but in a pie. Delicious!! I add a layer of homemade whip cream but other than that I like it just the way it is!"

"My Mother made this pie every Christmas and we all loved it. I am for sure making it this year.
