How to make Christmas Eggnog Pie. Sounds pretty amazing right? You may have seen our post a couple weeks ago featuring all of the Hood® Eggnog flavors along with some fun ideas featuring eggnog. As part of the Hood Eggnog Holiday Campaign, I decided to whip up a dessert featuring Hood Eggnog. Many think eggnog is just for drinking but I am here to tell you that you can make so many desserts with eggnog. The versatility that eggnog offers will make your head spin. This is by far, the easiest thing you will ever make. This is the perfect Christmas dessert to share with your family or a great dessert to bring to a holiday party! What I love about it is, it’s no bake. Simply mix up the ingredients, pour into a pie crust and chill in the freezer. Easy peasy. My 11 year old loves to cook and bake and this was so much fun to make with him.
I love the taste of the Hood Vanilla Eggnog so I decided to use that flavor for my pie but I think the Golden Eggnog flavor with apple spice would be delicious too and of course, you can’t go wrong with the Pumpkin flavor either. If you are in a pinch and do not have time to make your own whipped cream, you can always purchase Hood’s Instant Whipped Cream.
Pure vanilla extract compliments the traditional eggnog flavor to make this a delicious, creamy holiday treat. Not only is Hood Vanilla Eggnog perfect for cooking or baking, it’s absolutely delicious as a drink. We host Christmas Eve and prepare the Feast of the Seven Fishes for about 25+ family members and we always have a beverage station with different flavored eggnog choices. The kids love drinking eggnog out of fancy glasses and listening to Christmas music.
Hood Eggnog is only available for a limited time, so bring it home today and celebrate the season. Drinking eggnog is a family favorite in our house around the holidays. In fact, as soon as it hits shelves before Thanksgiving, the kids are eager to load up the grocery cart. I always laugh and say, “are you really going to drink all that eggnog?” My eleven year-old loves to help me in the kitchen and he was surprised to learn all the recipes that eggnog can be used in. You can find many of those recipes on the Hood website. Just use the drop down menu and search under eggnog recipes.
