If you are in charge of bringing a pie to a holiday gathering this year… you have got to bring this one!  

Psss, it’s the {No Bake} Eggnog Pie, in case you missed it.

This pie takes just as much time to make than you getting into your cold vehicle and picking one out of the freezer section at the market.  That’s if there’s any pies left from all of the other people rummaging for a non homemade pie…just saying.

Move over that other pie.  You know which one I’m talking about.  The one that’s filled with pumpkin and a dollop of whipped cream.  That pie just seems to always steal the spotlight.  For reasons that are just fine with me, I guess.   

Buuuttt… this eggnog pie is for the eggnog lovers that need to be acknowledged.  Am I right?  Can’t leave us out in the cold.

Actually, I have to be honest.  I don’t really like eggnog– as a drink, that is…but put it in something I can eat, I’m all over it!

{No Bake} Eggnog Pie that is always a #1 favorite every year! #pie #eggnog

This is a pie that I’ve been making ever since my boys were teeny tiny.  (Which really translates to 20 years!)  This is their #1 request every single year for “pie time”.  I make it for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and New Year’s Eve.  But, that doesn’t count of how many gallons my boys drink during the season!

You will LOVE how simple this Eggnog Pie is to make!  Remember, it’s a NO BAKE kind of pie…easy-peasy!

Melt the butter (please use the real stuff…it truly makes a difference!) in a large mixing bowl.  Add the finely crushed graham cracker crumbs.  Before I had a food processor, I would simply put the graham crackers in a closed plastic bag and have the boys pound at it with a rolling pin.

Put in some light brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg into the bowl of melted butter and crumbs.  Stir until all combined and put into a nine inch pie pan.  

It may seem like a lot of crumbs to fit into this shallow pie pan.  But, this is why you have crust in with every bite of creamy eggnog filling. 

Set the formed crust into the refrigerator to harden up the butter that was used in it.  This is the perfect time to start on the filling.

In a large mixing bowl, pour in the eggnog and vanilla pudding mixes.  Start mixing on low for about 1 minute.  Sprinkle in some cinnamon and nutmeg.  Mix on high speed for about another minute to 2 minutes.  It will begin to thicken up.  

Get out your pie crust from the refrigerator and pour in the creamy eggnog mixture.  Spread around to the edges.  Cover with 8 ounces of whipped cream.  Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon.  Tip:  If you choose not to cover with whipped cream, cover with a plastic wrap to prevent a skin forming on top.  Or, sprinkle on some finely crushed graham cracker.  Either way you choose…it is still so fabulous!

Set back into the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Ingredients
  1. For the CRUST
  2. 10 tablespoons butter, melted

  5. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  6. 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  7. For the FILLING
  8. 1 quart eggnog
  9. 3 (5.1 oz. each) packages vanilla instant pudding mix
  10. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  11. 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Instructions
  1. Melt the butter (please use the real stuff…it truly makes a difference!) in a large mixing bowl. Add the finely crushed graham cracker crumbs.
  2. Put in the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg into the bowl of melted butter and crumbs. Stir until all combined and put into a 9 inch pie pan.
  3. Start forming and pressing the crumb mixture down into the pie pan, and up along the sides.
  4. Set the formed crust into the refrigerator to harden up the butter that was used in it. (Only a few minutes.) This is the perfect time to start on the filling.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, pour in the eggnog and vanilla pudding mixes. Start mixing on low for about 1 minute. Sprinkle in the cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix on high speed for about another minute to 3 minutes. It will begin to thicken up.

Notes
  1. If you do not have a food processor of any kind, simply put the graham crackers in a closed plastic bag and pound at it with a rolling pin.
  2. If you choose not to cover with whipped cream, cover with a plastic wrap to prevent a skin forming on top. Or, sprinkle on some finely crushed graham cracker.
  3. This filling makes one very full pie. (May even have one or two spoonfuls left in the bowl to enjoy!)

    Gloria, this pie looks delicious and I have to tell you, I don’t like eggnog either! So if you like, I know I will too! 🙂 This sounds like a great pie to bring to my office potluck! Thanks for sharing your recipe and of course, pinning! 🙂 Hope you are having a great week!

    I don’t drink eggnog either. At least, not straight up. I buy them specifically for my lattes at home or for baking. I agree, they are wonderful when you can eat them! This is a delicious looking pie Gloria and I love that it’s no bake! Pinning, of course. 😉

      You are so nice to say that about the pics, Elizabeth. I actually almost deleted these off the camera on purpose. Don’t even ask me why…it was one of those days!

    This pie looks amazing Gloria! Pinning 🙂 Sounds perfect for any holiday gathering and I love that it’s no-bake too 🙂 I’m not a fan of drinking eggnog much either but love it in desserts – especially when added with cinnamon and brown sugar too 🙂

      I don’t know where you are, but Silk makes a soy based eggnog they call “seasonal nog”. It comes in a red, one quart carton.

    Oh. my. goodness. Thank you so much for this recipe!! I made it for our Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and it was de-licious and SO easy!! And it’s a beautiful presentation too!

    How long do you normally refrigerate it for? Yours looked more setup than mine, so I was wondering if I didn’t refrigerate it long enough? It was a little tough to serve because of that — but scrumptious, so I don’t care, lol! =)

      Oh, that makes me so happy it was a hit with your Thanksgiving, Mara! When I made this one (for the pics), I think it was in the fridge for less than an hour. Thank you for letting me know you enjoyed it. Have a happy Black Friday! (=

    I just made this for my family Christmas tomorrow. I had extra filling and crumbs after making a 9 inch deep dish pie (it is a lot of filling, but I’m not complaining), so I made myself a tiny pie for breakfast 🙂 WOW! This pie is absolutely delicious. I am a fan of anything custard-y/pudding-y, and I enjoyed every spoonful. It is definitely SWEET, so if you do not have a serious sweet tooth, this pie is not for you! I hope my family enjoys it as much as I did! Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

    • says

      Shannon, what a great treat for breakfast! My guys love this super-filled-to-the-edge and mile high pie… and hope your family does tomorrow, too! Have a very merry Christmas and thanks so much for stopping by to let us know what you thought. Big hugs! 🙂

    Ooooooh Gloria – I don’t mind baking (too much!), but you had me at crushed crumb crust, eggnog and whipped cream (not to mention the gorgeous photo which someone I am following threw into my feed on Pinterest!)

    I AM, however, going to have to adapt gluten free (just the crust and the pudding mix – I can have all the other ingredients). So that means I will have to eat any fails along the way, ya’ know – bummer, huh? (I will blame you for any weight gained.) I will also come back and post my GF adaptation in a comment here so you can change your photo caption to get the GF folks over here too – but don’t hold your breath, my dance card is pretty darned full already.

    This would be a great Easter pie too, if folks can find GF eggnog after New Years — I always freeze a few cartons for coffee and dessert making. (There is also a powdered mix, too, but it isn’t GF).

    For anyone else wondering or planning to play too, I will probably do GF gingerbread cookies for crumb crust – but may have to go to GF graham crackers – whichever turns out easier/quicker to make (because I could practically buy a house if I had to purchase 3 cups worth from the GF ready-to-buy folks). Maybe GF Cinnamon Rice Chex? Anyway, I KNOW I’ve pinned a GF pudding mix recipe on one of my Boards.

    Merry Christmas – and thanks for sharing. I’ll be back.

  2. […] {No Bake Eggnog Pie} – there was A LOT of flavor in this pie. Very rich/heavy. DH isn’t a big fan of eggnog, so only had a couple bites.
