Eggnog pie, oh my!

This dessert can be summed up in 1 word . . . YUMMY!!! At least that's what I'm told, not being a fan of eggnog I made it for DH and the kids who LOVE it. The pie never had a chance, lol. The recipe is simple enough and can be semi-homemade.

1 large box vanilla pudding, cook and serve
3 c. eggnog
1 c. heavy whipping cream, whipped with 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar and ½ tsp. vanilla

1. Combine the pudding mix and eggnog in a sauce pan. Stirring constantly, cook until thickened (about 10 minutes) then cool.
2. Fold the whipped cream into the eggnog pudding mix and put into a baked pie shell of your choice (pastry, graham cracker, gingerbread cookie…)
3. Bake for 15 mins at 350 degrees, let cool and then refrigerate.

I added the #3 to the basic recipe provided by Jamie @ Everyday Art. :)

Marie @ Make and Takes has a wonderful semi-homemade donut recipe that we also made yesterday. We made them in cinnamon and sugar and in glazed.

Glad you liked our recipe! It really is amazing, isn't it? I never thought to bake it a bit at the end--I bet that helps it set up a bit more.
