A spicy gingersnap crust is filled with a super creamy, flavorful eggnog filling and topped with Reddi-wip®.
If you read my last post, you know a little bit about why I have been absent from the blog and all social media for a little while. It's been so hard to get myself back into the kitchen but I'm trying. Today, I bring you one of the most delicious pies I've ever made. To be quite honest, I had the idea for this pie, but wasn't really sure how it was going to turn out. I was a little worried the eggnog flavor was going to get lost. Well, it didn't. It is very prominent and SO addictingly amazing!
The crust is made up of gingersnap cookies, ,melted butter, brown sugar and nutmeg. The spiciness of the gingersnap cookies goes SO perfectly with the eggnog/nutmeg combo.
At first, I tried refrigerating the pie overnight. The next day, when I took it out of the refrigerator , I didn't like the consistency of the pie. It wasn't nearly firm enough to cut. Freezing he pie until firm is what does the trick for this pie. You'll freeze the pie and allow it to sit out for a few minutes to soften, then slice it up. It's perfect!
The pie gets topped with some Reddi-wip and everything gets a light dusting of nutmeg to finish it off. As for most of my no-bake pies, I will always top them with little dollops of Reddi-wip because it is easy, delicious and convenient.
Spiced Eggnog No-Bake Pie with Gingersnap Crust
*Eggnog Pie Filling*
- 1 ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tbs confectioner's sugar
- 5.1 oz instant vanilla pudding mix
- 3 ½ cups prepared eggnog
- 30 gingersnap cookies
- 6 tbs unsalted butter melted
- 2 tbs brown sugar
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- In a food processor, pulse cookies until a fine crumb forms. Add melted butter, brown sugar and nutmeg. Pulse until combined. Dump into a 9" pie plate and spread and flatten with a fork or your hands to form crust on the bottom and up the sides of the pan.
- In a large bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Beat in powdered sugar and nutmeg. Set aside.
- In a separate large bowl, whisk vanilla pudding mix and eggnog together. Whisk in whipped cream until mixture is smooth. Pour on top of gingersnap crust.
- Cover the pie with plastic wrap and freeze for 4-5 hours. When ready to serve, remove from the freezer and allow to soften for at least 10 minutes before serving. Don't wait too long or the pie will get too soft to cut into clean slices. (But... will still be just as delicious.)
I purchased all of the items for this recipe at Walmart. You can find Reddi-wip in the refrigerated dairy section.
