    puppitypup's Note:

    This is the real deal, a custard based eggnog that is absolutely better than any storebought or pudding or icecream based eggnog. The egg yolks are cooked and there are no egg whites, so there are no worries about raw eggs. (I have removed the optional directions for including the egg whites, because we like it better without them.) Prep time doesn't include the overnight refrigeration.

      Made this great-tasting eggnog because I needed some to include in yet another recipe for a Pumpkin Eggnog Custard Pie! I cut the amount down to just one-quarter of the recipe, but that gave me enough for the pie as well as a 'little' to enjoy, even when it's not quite the season! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
