EGGNOG PIE INGREDIENTS

You’ll need:

  • 1 (3.4-ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1½ cups eggnog
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 prepared (pre-baked) 9-inch pie crust, use our pie crust recipe

PRO TIP:

Make sure you are using instant pudding rather than the stovetop version.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

ALCOHOL: You can add a splash of rum or bourbon to the pudding mixture. Just make sure you reduce the other liquid you are adding to the pie by equal amounts.

EGGNOG: You can use homemade eggnog or fresh eggnog from the grocery store. Be cautious using ultra-pasteurized eggnog as the milk enzymes may interfere with the thickening reaction when mixed with the pudding mix.

PIE CRUST: You can either use store-bought premade pie crust or try our homemade pie crust recipe for your eggnog custard pie.

WHIPPED CREAM: You can make your own homemade whipped cream or add a spoonful of Cool Whip on top.

HOW TO MAKE THIS EGGNOG PIE RECIPE

STEP ONE: In a medium bowl, whisk together instant pudding mix, eggnog, and nutmeg until the eggnog mixture begins to thicken (about 5 minutes).

STEP TWO: In a separate bowl (or in a stand mixer), whisk the heavy cream on high speed until stiff peaks form.

STEP THREE: Gently fold the whipped cream into the eggnog pudding mixture.

STEP FOUR: Transfer pie filling into the prepared pie crust.

PRO TIP:

If you are using a store-bought pie shell in a foil pie plate, we’d recommend setting it in a glass pie plate for added stability.

STEP FIVE: Chill for at least 3 hours to allow the pie to firm up.  

PRO TIP:

As hard as it is to be patient, make sure you give this pie time to chill in the fridge before you serve it.

STEP SIX: Serve with additional whipped cream and sprinkle a little bit of fresh nutmeg on top of the pie.

Can I make this eggnog pudding pie ahead of time?
