Eggnog Pie

I was thinking of what else I could make with eggnog, and I thought to make a pie similar to a buttermilk pie. I added some more spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, then I served it with freshly whipped cream.

This recipe developed for Babble’s Family Kitchen.


Eggnog Pie


2 cups eggnog, at room temperature
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
3 eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon rum extract
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon or a dash freshly grated nutmeg
pre-made store-bought rolled pie crust
1 cup fresh cream, whipped (add 1/8 teaspoon rum extract if desired when whipping)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Roll out pie crust in a deep dish pie plate. Crimp edges.

3. Combine sugar and flour in a large bowl. Mix well. Add melted butter and mix again. Add eggnog and mix again. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well. Add vanilla and rum extract. Mix well. Add cinnamon and nutmeg, mix well. Pour mixture into pie crust.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, or until set in the middle. Let cool completely before serving. Pie will rise when baking and then after cooling, will fall.

    I’d never thought of having eggnog in a pie, to be its one of the things the ‘adults’ drank at christmas and I was never allowed. But now I’ve been an adult for a few years I’ll take the plunge and try it this Christmas!
