Eggnog Custard Pie w/ White Chocolate-Eggnog Sauce

Chances are, there’s a lonely carton of leftover eggnog sitting dormant in your fridge right this very moment. It’s post-Christmas, and you’re asking yourself, “What the heck am I gonna do with that?”

Fear not, my little cookies, for I’ve got an incredibly delicious way to make use of your residual ‘nog: Eggnog Custard Pie with White Chocolate-Eggnog Sauce. Not only is it scrumptious, but it’s also a sweet way to ring in the New Year. This pie boasts a smooth and creamy custard filling, lightly spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, and subtle eggnog flavor. Cradled in a Nilla Wafer crust, the whole pie is drenched in a luscious eggnog-white chocolate sauce for additional sweet indulgence.

This pie is light and delicious, an ideal treat for finishing off this Christmas’ carton of creamy eggnog. It requires very few ingredients and even less effort. For an easy dessert with impressive results, you simply must make this Eggnog Custard Pie.

A Few Tips Before You Get Cooking:

  • This requires a good amount of chilling time, ideally overnight. Make sure you plan ahead! The good news is that you can make this the day before you actually need it.
  • If you aren’t a white chocolate fan, you could top this pie with fresh, homemade whipped cream instead. I think the white chocolate pairs beautifully, though. It makes the pie special.
  • You could make a Ginger Cookies Crust instead of the Nilla Wafer Crust for some extra flavor.
  • You can crushthe Nilla Wafers in a food processor or in a ziplock bag with a rolling pin.

  1. I’ve been checking my mail for the goodies you were supposed to mail. LOL.

    This pie looks amazing but what do you make that doesn’t? I love the idea of an eggnog and white chocolate sauce. Two of my favorite things. This must be very rich and bursting with flavorful sweetness. Good job.

  2. How delicious this must be! Eggnog flavored custard does sound tasty and putting it in a pie form with all that drippy sauce does amp it up so much more. Saving this winner of a recipe-thanks for sharing.
