Guilty Pleasures: Quick Eggnog Pie

I was given the pleasure to review a wonderful cookbook called "Guilty Pleasures" by Gwen McKee and Barbara Mosely. I was like "ohhh time to bring out the fat pants"! There are so many fantastic recipes ranging from cakes to pies to breakfast sweets and anything in between for any occasion that you might want to have a sweet. Recipes are well written, easy to follow and you know that when you make one of them in the book, that it has been perfected.

I choose an easier recipe to start out. This pie has a very rich flavor, absolutely amazing. However, if you don't like eggnog, you will NOT like this pie. I used rum instead of vanilla flavoring and it added another level of flavor, almost a kick. A small piece was definitely enough!


1 envelope unflavored gelatin
3 tblsp cold water
2 cups commercially prepared eggnog
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla or rum flavoring [I used rum!]
1 (9-inch) graham cracker pie shell
Nutmeg for garnish
  • Soften gelatin in cold water. 
  • Warm eggnog over direct low heat. Stir in softened gelatin, and continue heating until completely dissolved. Chill until partially set, then beat until smooth.
  • Into stiffly whipped cream, beat sugar, salt and flavoring. 
  • Fold into eggnog mixture. Pour into pie shell. 
  • Chill 2-4 hours. Garnish with nutmeg. Serves 8.
