Eggnog Pie Recipe

A holiday favorite of Florence Shaw from East Wenatchee, Washington, this creamy pie delivers wonderful eggnog flavor. It's very pretty, too, with a sprinkling of nutmeg on top.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 1 pastry shell (9 inches), baked


  • 1. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over water; let stand 1 minute. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Stir in eggnog until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in gelatin until dissolved. Remove from the heat; cool to room temperature.
  • 2. Stir in extracts; fold in whipped cream. Pour into pastry shell. Refrigerate until firm. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared eggnog.

"My husband thought this pie tasted 'very good'. I used a prepared graham cracker crust. It slices nicely."

"This tastes great. The one thing that you need to correct is the pastry shell information. Based on the recipe, I used a standard 9" pie shell and had lots of custard left over. I am sure this would have been avoided with a deep dish pie shell. I also served it with whip cream on top and it looked very pretty."

"I made this to use up left over egg nog and whipping cream after Christmas. It tasted great and looked beautiful. I used a graham cracker crust. I would adjust the instructions to say stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Mine started to burn a little on the bottom while I was waiting for it to boil. Aside from that, it was easy to make and worth it. Wish there was a picture as I almost overlooked this treat while searching for a good pie recipe."
