Eggnog Pumpkin Pie

Eggnog gets extra credit for the creamy custard filling in this treasured recipe from field editor Terri Gonzalez, Roswell, New Mexico. She notes, “This pie of my mom’s is the absolute best pumpkin pie I have ever tasted.”

    The eggnog gives it a nice, silky texture. We enjoyed this one quite a bit, and it was very easy to make.

    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.

    I substituted almond milk for the eggnog as well as a 1/2 cup of agave nectar and some blended dates for the sugar. It was delicious and the prettiest pie I've baked.

    Our family taste tested this pie against a traditional pumpkin pie. The votes were split evenly between the two.

    Absolutely my favorite pumpkin pie! The only thing I've ever done differently is to try out the flavored eggnogs and my recommendation is for the vanilla spice one. Always, Always get asked for the recipe.

    A nice variation on pumpkin pie. A little too rich for our tastes.

    I made this recipe for thanksgiving. I ended up having to make it again that week because EVERYONE that tried it loved it. It turned out very creamy and smooth. I cooked it a little bit longer than it said and I used deep pie crusts. I will most definitely be making this again!
