Creamy No Bake Eggnog Pie & {Giveaway Closed}

This creamy No Bake Eggnog Pie is perfect for the holidays! Creamy, delicious and so simple to make. 
Merry Christmas everyone! Not only do I have a delicious recipe to share with you today, but I also have a fun little giveaway from Taste of Home. I was so excited when Taste of Home contacted me last month about hosting a holiday giveaway. Taste of home is one of my favorite publications that I receive throughout the year.

Since receiving the magazines in the mail I have literally read them from cover to cover. So many great recipes yet so little time. Each magazine is packed full of beautiful photos of each recipe.

The Creamy No Bake Eggnog Pie pictured above was featured in The Best Holiday Recipes. I love eggnog, so I couldn't wait to make this pie. I love that this was a no bake recipe, so it literally took no time to throw together. Everyone loved the creamy festive flavor. What a fun new way to enjoy eggnog.   

I have such a sweet tooth that my favorite book was the Best Loved Cookies & Candies.  This edition has 150 recipes for the best cookies and candies. Whoppie pies, Southern Tea Cakes, Chocolate Reindeer's, Fruitcake cookies and Hot Chocolate Cookies, Friendship Brownies and Peanut Butter Fudge just to name a few.

The third and last holiday edition was for Best Loved Food Gifts. This one is has 143 creative holiday gift ideas. Caramel Apple Jam, Jalapeno Jelly, Blueberry Banana Bread, Lemon Thyme Bread, Mexican Hot Chocolate Mix, Cheese Balls and Seasoning Mixes. This one is loaded with tons of great gifts from the kitchen.

My favorite Christmas treat are Gingerbread Men !!


VickiT said... #

Ooh that looks just yummy. I've sadly already done all my shopping for the holiday. Of course, we can still get yummy egg nog in January. My twin sons birthdays are in January and one of them is living back with us for awhile with his family and he LOVES Egg nog so this might be something I will be making for his birthday.

And to answer your question.....with a question LOL HOW can I possibly tell you my favorite? That's a tough thing to do.
One of my very favorites is a recipe I got years ago somewhere for pecan pie bars. OH those are SO good and taste just like a pecan pie with less fuss.

I hope you have an amazing Christmas. Thank you for another great giveaway. I LOVE Taste of Home and used to subscribe for years. I have almost a half of an entire bookshelf just of their magazine which is the biggest reason I had to stop. I do still pick them up though because the recipes are always so good.

Oooo can't wait to try this. I haven't tried anything of yours that me nor the family didn't like. I would have to say I have two; 1 is more for me & the munchkin which is your Santa Cut out sugar cookies--favorite b/c it helps make precious memories that we've all grown up with & I love helping shape them for him even if he's a boy & doesn't really wanna help for long LOL. 2nd I would have to be for DH & that's your chocolate chess pie, that is a no brainer for every holiday season I have to make at least two of these--he absolutely LOVES this recipe & says it brings him back to some cherished memories of his grandmother making it.

Karen said... #

Ohhhhhhhh Christmas crack...I have tried using pretzels instead of nuts, oh soooooo good, also added rasins instead of nuts. I like to see the stunned look on peoples faces when I tell them that I made up a batch of crack and ask if they would like to try some. Way to funny, they tell me they were speechless to think a 69 year old gma cooks up crack, we all have a good laugh. Now every year they ask me to make a batch of crack for them, omg the looks we got when a friend asked me if I was making crack for Christmas in the grocery checkout line or the first time I made it and emailed my grandaughter that I made up a batch of crack, omg, my son was on the phone in a matter of minutes wondering what was going on. Not only is Christmas crack soooo good, you just can't eat one piece, we have had some good laughs when I ask people if they would like to try some of my crack.

Hi there, and best wishes for the holiday season to everyone. My favorite Christmas treat is my Grandmother's authentic Old English Plum Pudding. In late October or early November she starts collecting a wonderful assortment of fruits and nuts and spices. Starts making the Plum Puddings around the first of December, steams it in cheesecloth, then hangs it in her pantry until Christmas so it dries and ripens. The aroma of drying puddings is indescribable! And when warmed up and served with vanilla "hard sauce", it can't be beat!

Thanks for all the great recipes. :-)

My daughter loves all things eggnog so when I saw this recipe I thought of her and immediately went to my kitchen to make it. Dinner is still in the crockpot so I can't speak for her yet but I think she will be happily surprised after dinner. :)

My favorite treat is potato chip cookies.

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday.

one of my favorite treats is the Oatmeal Scotties that my cousin make. im not really a fan of sweets, or cookies, but i love those, and she only makes them once a year...and last year she didnt make them at all, so i was totally psyched to get a giant bag this year :)

Southern Girl said... #

My favorite holiday treat isn't a dessert, but it IS a treat, because we only have them at Christmas -- sausage balls! I used a new gluten-free recipe this year, and was really surprised when everyone loved it more than our old stand-by recipe.

I am not sure I could pick just one holiday treat. I guess it would be chocolate covered pretzels. The salty and sweet are a perfect combo.

Hard to choose a favorite holiday treat, but maybe a cheese ball.
The eggnog pie looks delicious.
Anything with cream cheese would
have to be good, wouldn't it??
Happy New Year to all!!

My favorite Christmas treat is my Mom's lime jello salad made with cream cheese, mini marshmallows, crushed pineapple, pecans, diced celery, and Cool Whip. What makes this special is a thin layer of plain strawberry jello on top, and how festive it looks served atop a lettuce leaf on a salad plate!

What i don't understood is if truth be told how you are not actually much more well-appreciated than you might be now. You're so intelligent.
You recognize thus significantly when it comes to this subject, produced me personally imagine it from so many varied angles.

Its like women and men don't seem to be fascinated unless it's
something to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs excellent.
All the time handle it up!
