This easy no bake Eggnog Pie has won a permanent place on our Thanksgiving and Christmas dessert menus. It's light, fluffy and a family favorite!
You know, one of the best things about the holiday season has got to be eggnog! I remember drinking it from my special Santa mug when I was a kid, which seemed to make it taste even better.
Now, my kids go crazy for this stuff, and one of their favorite ways to enjoy it is by indulging in a tasty slice of eggnog pie. It's cool, creamy, and you only need 5 ingredients to make it!
- Pie crust -- graham cracker or frozen pie crust
- Jello Instant Pudding Mix
- Cool Whip or non dairy topping
I started serving this no bake pie for dessert at Thanksgiving and Christmas a few years ago, and my oldest daughter has now made it her specialty.
We love this holiday pie so much that my daughter always makes two at one time. This way, we can enjoy some for dessert on the actual holiday and have more the next day.
My daughter likes to add a little bit more whipped topping as a garnish and some additional nutmeg over the filling -- yum!
The pie is light and fluffy, so it's the perfect ending to a heavy meal, and no one can say they don't have room for dessert! It also goes great with a cup of coffee, Instant Pot Hot Chocolate or eggnog -- double yum!

Hi there! I was wondering if this could be frozen and enjoyed at a later date?? Wasn’t sure with the whipped topping how it would react in the freezer
You can freeze the pie. Let me know how you like it!

Hi just found this recipe of yours wonderful for an Australian hot Christmas. I’ve had to convert measurements for making so I am hoping I have got it right. Also we don’t have cool whip? So I assumed it was whipped real cream. It is in the refrigerator as we speak. Fingers crossed that it turns out for this evening. Cheers
Let me know how it goes. Hope you enjoy the pie!
