You Want Pies With That? – Holiday Spirit Pie

by Jessica on December 29, 2009

This month’s ‘You Want Pies With That?’ theme was to create a pie with true holiday spirit… and spirited it is! For inspiration, I used traditional Christmas eggnog with whiskey, nestled within a gingersnap crust. It’s velvety, rich, spicy and a snap to make (yep, pun intended). 🙂

Eggnog Pie

Whiskey Eggnog Pie with Gingersnap Crust

1-1/2 c gingersnap cookie crumbs
1/4 c unsalted butter, melted and cooled

4-3/4 oz package Jello vanilla pudding mix
2 c lowfat eggnog
1-1/4 c skim milk
2 tbsp whiskey
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
9″ graham cracker pie shell

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Stir together gingersnap cookie crumbs and butter. Mix well and press firmly & evenly into bottom and up sides of a 9″ pie plate. Bake for 10 minutes, then let cool before filling.

Cook pudding mix using eggnog and skim milk. Stir in whiskey and nutmeg, then pour into crust. Cover surface and chill for several hours before serving.

I’ll leave you with a glimpse of the sweet sign C gave me for Christmas last Friday… seems fitting for this post, huh?? I love it (and I love you, C!!) – it’s an absolute perfect fit for my kitchen. Even though you’re in San Diego, you’re with me while I bake, too. 🙂
