Eggnog Pumpkin Pie (Recipe)
A few days ago I got a bunch of organic eggnog really cheap at this place down the road. I love eggnog, but there was no way I was going to finish it before it went bad. That's when I had a genius moment and came up with this recipe idea.
1 Large (29oz.)can of pumpkin or equivalent.
1 cup sugar
1 ts. each of ground ginger, and cinnamon.
20oz of eggnog
2 pie crusts
Preheat oven to 425F
1. Add sugar and spices together in a bowl, mix well and then add eggs.
2. Beat the eggs well, then add the pumpkin.
3. Gradually add the eggnog and beat all together well.
4. Pour mixture into prepared crusts.
Bake at 425F for 10 minutes then reduce heat to 325 taking between another 45 min to an hour to bake.
Pies are done when a knife or toothpick in the center comes out clean.
It doesn't taste that different from a regular pumpkin pie, but its a good way to use up extra eggnog!
See how the crust is too dark on the edges? Layla decided to turn the oven up to 500F while I wasn't looking!
