Can I tell you a secret? I will make 2 or 3 of these No Bake Eggnog pies and freeze them as soon as I see Egg Nog in the stores. They are OFF LIMITS until January.
And I always secretly hope there is still one left for Pi Day in March. This is no joke. We love no bake pie recipes.
Making a Freezer Pie really only takes a few minutes to whip up, which is ideal and having an Eggnog Pie recipe in the freezer means I always have a treat for special moments.
Eggnog is a Holiday flavor and a hard ingredient to find other times of year which makes it even more fun to enjoy for the Holidays and New Years Eve celebrations. For those that LOVE Eggnog you know what I mean, a family favorite. It's a thick rich drink that is also wonderful when used in recipes such as Eggnog Quick Bread or Eggnog French Toast. And one of my new favorites are Eggnog Cookies with a delicious frosting.
This no bake eggnog pie with vanilla pudding mix whips up in minutes and can be frozen for up to 4 months.
Do you like easy freezer pies? Me too! You might also like Symphony Pie with a delicious Symphony Chocolate Bar, only a 3 ingredient recipe and it’s wonderful.
OR you might like this Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Pie. But let me warn you, this pie is rich and you will only need a small slice.

The ease of No Bake Pies is wonderful. This 4 ingredient recipe can be make in only a few minutes. It’s a perfect recipe to introduce little hands in the kitchen. The kids will find success in making a pie to be proud of.
Ice cream Pies have a more solid texture than a cream no bake pie and are equally as good. Try making eggnog ice cream and pour into a graham cracker crust pie plate. Delish!

The name gives it away, there is No Baking Involved. Typically No Bake Recipes use very few ingredients.

Eggnog is a milk punch or an egg and milk punch made with milk, cream, sugar and whipped egg whites. Often served with alcohol.

Typically Eggnog shows up on the shelves mid November. So watch for it. It sells out fast.

Eggnog can be frozen for up to 6 months. As it freezes it will expand so make sure you use a container that is a little larger so it has the room it needs.

In this recipe I use a pre-made graham cracker crust. A homemade graham cracker crust is also delicious and can be made using melted butter, sugar, and graham cracker crumbs.
How to make Eggnog Pie
In a mixing bowl combine eggnog and instant pudding mix. Mixture will begin to thicken. Add cool whip and gently mix to combine. Pour eggnog mixture into graham cracker pie crust and you have made an egg nog pie.

Recipe sounds good I haven't had eggnog in years..quick question do you make the pudding or do you just add in the pack of pudding mix in without making it? Thank you
I have not tested this recipe with whipping cream. I would suggest 2 cups of Heavy Whipping Cream that has been whipped to form stiff peaks. You could choose to sweeten per taste.
I have used this recipe every Thanksgiving and Christmas for the past couple of years. It is sooo easy and delicious. I also make a pumpkin pie recipe cut into half and use half of this recipe to make an eggnog pumpkin pie and YUMMMM!!!!
Hi Chelsea, I love hearing this. We love making Eggnog Pie and always try to keep one in the freezer during the holiday season. I love your idea with the pumpkin pie too! I bet it's tasty!
I am adding eggnog to my grocery list right now! This sounds marvelous and has given me many ideas for additional pies! I also put recipes in our neighborhood newsletter for each issue, so this is a wonderful idea for that! Thank you so very much!
Is that 1 and 3/4 or 3/4 eggnog?
The recipe lists 1 3/4 cup of eggnog. So 1 cup plus 3/4 cup eggnog.
Made this for Thanksgiving and it was GREAT!
All I had was Pumpkin flavored eggnog and everyone loved it.
Great idea to use Pumpkin Eggnog. I will have to try it.
I made the Eggnog Pie for Thanksgiving. My daughter was a little skeptical as she does not like eggnog. Well, she loved the pie and so did the other guests. Everyone commented about how creamy it was. Here is my question. In the store there are many varieties of eggnog. I purchased the "regular" eggnog but I was wondering how the Southern Comfort eggnog would work? Could that be used instead of the regular eggnog?
Hi Robin! Thank you for the glowing review. I'm so happy to hear that everyone loved this recipe. It's a favorite in our home too. Eggnog does come in many varieties and the great news is you can substitute and use what you have available. I find that a rich thick eggnog makes an even creamier pie. Give Southern Comfort Eggnog a try, it won't disappoint and for a fun twist, try a Pumpkin Eggnog too. It's delicious!
The grocery store sent me PUMPKIN eggnog. I went ahead and made it with that and it's great!
Thanks for the recipe.
So glad to hear that Pumpkin Eggnog is also delicious in this recipe. I will have to try it!
I'm excited to make this pie.
I ordered my groceries including the ingredients for this pie and the grocery store sent me Pumpkin flavored Eggnog. Bet that will be good too.
Oh Rebecca you always get my old mind running ninety-to-nothing!
Thinking about making small ones in the Souper Cubes! Don't you think that would be great? Would love having a mini pie on hand when I want something sweet. Also great for unexpected company. Probably would not take as long to thaw if they are mini (or I might just have to dig in to a frozen one).
Thanks. Can't wait to make this. Ingredients are now on my shopping list.
Would you believe that this is all ready on my radar?? I love my Souper Cubes and making a smaller pie for 2 or even single servings would be heaven sent for sure. Here is my Affiliate link to Souper cubes for you or anyone else who would like to purchase them. https://www.soupercubes.com/?ref=61

the eggnog pie was a hit. I made 2 pies, We had one for Thanksgiving with other desserts and I took out the other one for Xmas.I just made 2 more to freeze for a later date. Thanks for the great recipe.
Hey Barbara! You are VERY Welcome. We love this Eggnog Pie too. I think I have 1 in the freezer as well and hopefully it will be a fun surprise for Pie Day on March 14th.
What size tub of cool whip do you use 500g? I know in Canada they come in 500g and 1L size.
Hi Kristina, the 500g would be a close match!
This pie is so good. My family now has a new favorite. This one.
Eggnog Freezer Pie is one of our Favorites too! So glad you enjoyed this No bake Pie Recipe
Can you use the same recipe for mini pies?
Yes, you can use the same recipe and fill mini pies. It would be so cute and adorable!
Can this be made and placed in the Refrigerator for four hours instead of putting it in the freezer?
Yes, you can put the Eggnog Pie in the Refrigerator if you plan on eating it soon. Then it will be perfect for serving!
What is cool whip?whatcan I use as a substitute? I don't think it is available here in Australia
Hi Julie, Great Question. Cool Whip is like a stabilized whipped cream that is sold in a tub in the freezer section of the grocery store. Maybe you have something similar by another name. I have not tested this recipe using fresh whipping cream that has been whipped and stabilized to hold it's shape but I'm sure it would work if you are serving immediately.
This was a thanksgiving hit! So delicious and I"m not even an eggnog fan!!!!
I'm so glad to hear! We love making Eggnog Pie as well!
