Eggnog pie is a delicious Christmas recipe and a perfect way to get the flavor of your favorite holiday beverage into your baked goods! It’s similar to a classic Southern buttermilk pie, but it uses eggnog instead of buttermilk (obvi). The eggnog lovers in your family will go nuts for this simple pie! All you need is a pie crust, eggnog, eggs, sugar, butter, flour, and vanilla. You owe it to your holiday baking to make this pie!
I am thinking that I may have mentioned my love for eggnog here a time or two. Every fall I wait with baited breath for eggnog to appear in the dairy case and then I get as much of it as I can. I love to incorporate eggnog into Christmas breakfast recipes or just mix it with my coffee…and of course I like to just drink it straight up, with plenty of freshly ground nutmeg (this is the nutmeg grater that I use).
I am always looking for new holiday baking recipes. Last Christmas it occurred to me that it would be easy to incorporate eggnog into a buttermilk pie recipe for a Christmas pie with my favorite flavor of the holiday. I tried it with my last little bit of eggnog and it was pretty much perfect. It was after Christmas, though, so a little late to share with you guys! But…here it is now.
This eggnog pie is so easy. All you do is:
- Blind-bake a pie crust (I made my own – here is my favorite pie crust recipe – but there is no shame in using a refrigerated or frozen crust)
- Whisk together a handful of ingredients – buttermilk, sugar, eggs, flour, butter, and vanilla
- Pour the eggnog mixture into the crust
- Chill and serve
This is a holiday pie that makes baking your own pie worth every bit of perceived trouble. But really, it’s no trouble at all. Just so easy and delicious! If you are an eggnog lover, you will definitely want to add this to your Christmas baking list!
