Eggnog Pumpkin Pie

2 cups ground gingersnaps
8 tablespoons butter, melted, divided use
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 Safe Eggs
1 cup eggnog
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt

Whipped Cream 
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. 
In a large bowl, stir together cookie crumbs, 6 tablespoons melted butter, and sugar until combined.  Press crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate.  Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.  Cool 10 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together eggs, eggnog, pumpkin and brown sugar until well combined - about 2 minutes.  Beat in flour, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt until combined.  Pour pumpkin filling into pie crust.  Bake 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted into pie comes out clean.

To make the whipped cream, in a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on high speed, beat together cream, granulated sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form.  Spread whipped cream over pie.

Makes 9 servings

  1. the hat's a lovely look for the graduate, and the blanket of whipped cream is a lovely look for any pie, even pumpkin. :)

  2. Pumpkin pie is totally a Christmas dessert too (well at least in my family). It's my dad's favourite dessert so we always have it during the holidays.
    I baked a pumpkin pie last weekend for a Christmas dinner in France. My friends are all foreigners and had never tasted it before - it was a hit :)

  3. I never tire of pumpkin, and combining it with eggnog in a pie sounds like a fantastic decision =).

  6. What a wonderful looking pie. I would agree, December is still pumpkin season! And even if it's not technically, this pie would be welcome at our Christmas dinner :) Pinned!

  7. Nice recipe! It will be a blessing from the sky with a glass of fresh orange juice. We tend to forget about pumpkin after Thanksgiving but it deserves more. Happy Holidays :)

  9. I haven't gotten nearly enough pumpkin so far this year, so I'm totally down with pumpkin pie for Christmas. And I bet the eggnog just makes it so creamy.

  11. Congrats to Eric! Geologist? He could end up working at my company! Don't worry, they value technical people far more than they value customer care folks.

    Am I sick of pumpkin pie yet? Well, yes, but I'm always sick of pumpkin pie. :-D

  18. I consider pumpkin pie to be an every day of the year kind of dessert. Please say it's not just me. I love the eggnog twist! That definitely makes it a holiday classic! Congrats to Eric!

  19. This looks delicious, and I will thoroughly enjoy veganizing it. However, one question - you list 8 tablespoons butter in the ingredients, noting it is divided. You use 6 in the crust, but the other two aren't mentioned - where do they go in?
