Here's an elegant pie that says “holiday” in every bite. The tart cranberries contrast nicely with the rich eggnog layer. It's a repeat dessert at our house. —Ruth White, Bedford, Ohio

  • 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


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water until smooth; stir in cranberries. Cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes. Pour into crust; 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 until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Fold in whipped cream; pour over cranberry layer. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
This recipe was tested with commercially prepared eggnog.
