Spiced Eggnog Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Spiced Eggnog Pumpkin Pie Recipe

With its 10-minute prep time and lovely blend of mild eggnog flavor and spices, this is a busy hostess’ dream dessert! It’s a staple for Thanksgiving and Christmas. In fact, my grown kids request it whenever they come to visit. —Patti Leake, Columbia, Missouri
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1-1/4 cups eggnog
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

  • 1. Roll out pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate; flute edges.
  • 2. Place the remaining ingredients in a large bowl; beat just until smooth. Pour into pastry.
  • 3. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 30-35 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. (Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary.) Cool completely on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared eggnog.
