Bite-sized Easy Eggnog Mini Pies are light, fluffy and ideal for holiday entertaining. They’re also perfect when you need a last minute Christmas dessert!


One of my most popular recipes on the blog is Eggnog Pie. It’s a super simple and very easy holiday dessert. I started making it years ago, and now even my younger kids can make most of it on their own.

I actually posted the recipe for eggnog pie about 2 years ago, but I just got around to making a quick video today. And honestly, making a food video is a lot harder than making the pie! We ended up having so much eggnog left over that I decided to make a new version of the original recipe — these cute little easy eggnog mini pies! 

I may just like these little bite-sized desserts even better than the original, and they’re so easy to make.

We started out by using packaged pie crust and little glass to cut out small circles of the dough.


Then, we put the dough into two muffin tins and baked the crusts for about 10 minutes. While the mini crusts were baking, we started making the eggnog filling.


After the crusts were cool, we spooned the filling into the the mini pie crusts. Then, we popped the mini eggnog pies into the fridge to set .


After about an hour, the the filling was firm, and we topped the little pies off with a few sprinkles of  nutmeg and little dabs of whipped topping.

You can use whipped cream here, but I was going with what I already had.

Aren’t these little eggnog pies the cutest things ever?! Well, maybe not ever, but still, I think they’re pretty darn cute. If you’re looking for an easy dessert for your holiday parties, these eggnog mini pies would be perfect!

    Can these be made a day ahead of time and kept in the fridge? Has anyone tried that?5 stars

    1. Dee says:

      Yes, they are fine for about a day in the fridge. The pastry tends to get softer the longer it sits.

  2. Marg Johnson says:

    Will these freeze? I’d like to freeze them and ship them to my son for Christmas.

    1. Dee says:

      Yes — They freeze very well.
