Today I whipped a few mini eggnog pies for holiday entertaining! They are so easy, only a few ingredients. I shared my tips today with Keri Bellacosa on Good Day Austin. You can see the link here. The full recipe and how to is below.
Be sure to check out Keri’s blog, It’s Showtime, where she shares all sorts of helpful (and cute!) entertaining tips!
I followed this recipe from Whole Foods.
It only takes a few simple ingredients:
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.
Press the pie crust into the mini molds. Be sure to press the crust down firmly. Crease the edges.
Whisk the eggs and sugar together.
Add the eggnog and vanilla, whisk again until smooth.
Fill 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!
Wow Natalie! Nice job on the news!!!
Thanks so much Heather! It was great seeing you yesterday!
Has anyone commented on how you and Keri look related? BTW, I’m making these paleo. YUm.
Haha no one has yet Brittanie! But I’ll take that as at oral compliment! Can’t wait to see the paleo version.
I only had one true mini pan and one regular cupcake pan so I made 12 of each (only using/filling the regular ones by half). The store bought pie crust was horrible to work with — kept splitting and I continually patched and reformed them. The true small mini’s were definitely the way to go — SO much more attractive than the larger ones. Of course I had to sample the custard to which I added a teaspoon of cinnamon (yes, raw eggs and all), and it was DEVINE. I hope the finished product is as wonderful (we’ll see tonight at the Christmas party). Thanks for sharing this — a true Christmas holiday mini dessert! 🙂
