    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!

    I have made this pie numerous times and have always received rave revies. As a matter of fact, I have been asked for the recipe every time that I took this pie to an event or gathering. It has become a Thanksgiving and Christmas staple in our family. I love the light, yet flavorful, texture.
