    This was amazing and the first pie gone at a large Thanksgiving dinner. My husband requested I make another the day after.

    This is the second year in a row I've made this pie. Now I only need to remember to make it more often! I made it using the leftover eggnog from the holidays that no one drank, and it always is a big winner. I made a gingerbread crust that I blind baked to pour the filling into. Turned out great. Thanks for a great dessert!

    I liked this, but it was a little too gelatonous in texture for me. I used cool whip (as one of the reviewers suggested) instead of whipped cream - I wasn't sure how much 1c of whipped cream makes, but I probably added 2.5 cups? I thought the flavor was very good - I used Gingerbread flavor eggnog because that is what I had. I also bought a graham cracker crust because I thought it went with this pie more than pastry crust. I also used 1 tps of rum because I didn't have rum extract. If I made it again, I think I would use pudding (vanilla?) instead of gelatin and use the eggnog instead of milk in the pie - that might give it a more creamy texture.

    Awesome dessert! My family loves it! Tried it the first time with Whipping Cream, didn't care for the texture but tasted great! Made it again last night and used Cool Whip, AWESOME texture and taste! Going to make it for Thanksgiving!! Thank you Kittencal for the great recipes you submit!!
