I followed this recipe from Whole Foods.
Mini-Eggnog-Pies-8_Natalie-It only takes a few simple ingredients:

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups Eggnog

3/4 cup of sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Two 9 inch pie crusts- I used store bought but you can make your own too

Optional: Nutmeg and Whipped Cream

This will make 24 mini pies!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Begin by rolling out the pie crust. Using a small cup or circular cookie cutter, cut out little pie crusts for your mini pan.

Add the eggnog and vanilla, whisk again until smooth.

Mini-Eggnog-Pies_Natalie-PaFill pie crusts with eggnog batter. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until edges of pies are lightly brown. The centers will puff up quite a bit while baking. They will settle down after cooling. Allow pie to cool completely before serving.

Top with whipped cream and ground nutmeg for garnish. Check out my segment here  for how to garnish the mini pies and tips for decorating the dessert table!

 

Enjoy!
