    We love this pie! I've made it with the baked crust, which was very good, but I've also used a shortbread crust, which was excellent. Has a great vibrant eggnog flavor, which is just what I wanted.

    I made this pie for Christmas. It WASNT a big hit. I was hesitant to make this and I wish I would of made something else. The crust came out so hard. It was a task to cut into it. The actual pie part tasted good but for some reason my family didn't really like it.

    I made this instead of regular eggnog I used Pumpkin eggnog, I omitted the whole milk and used 3 cups cups of the pumpkin eggnog and a large vanilla pudding. This was more delicious than the regular eggnog pie.

    Never made a pie in the winter, but will definitely give this one a try. Is there any reason I couldn't use 3 cups of eggnog and omit the milk?

    Used whipping cream with eggnog. Not a fan of overly sweet anything. this made it creamy and oh so good.
