Servings: 1 pie
Cook Time: 55 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie crust
1 cup sugar
4 large eggs
1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup light rum
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Whipped cream, for garnish
Powdered sugar, for garnish





Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

On a lightly floured surface, unroll pie crust. Roll pastry into a 12-inch circle. Press pie crust into a 9-inch deep dish pie plate, crimping edges, if desired. Lightly poke holes into the bottom of the dough once it’s fitted firmly in the plate.

In a large bowl, beat sugar and eggs at medium speed with an electric mixer until well combined. Add evaporated milk, water, rum and salt. Beat at low speed until combined. Pour mixture into crust. Sprinkle top of pie with nutmeg and cinnamon. Place pie onto a rimmed baking sheet with a depth of 1/2-inch. Add hot water to baking sheet.

Bake for about 55 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean.

Cut into desired sizes and garnish with whipped cream and powdered sugar.

I made this pie for New Years eve and followed the recipe to the letter except I didn't have any rum so I added 3 drops of butter rum flavoring. The filling before baking tasted just like yummy. When the pie finished baking the texture was bad, kinda like sweet scrambled eggs (I mixed the filling according directions). Is this how the texture is suppose to be? I thought it would be creamier. If the texture wasn't bad I would have given this recipe a definite 5 stars.

It's called egg nog pie because you're making the egg nog. Eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg - that's egg nog!

I had to laugh, really - do people not understand that good eggnog is homemade and MADE WITH RUM, EGGS, and MILK! Hence, why this pie is called eggnog. After searching on the internet for a custard pie for my hubby who also loves Eggnog I FINALLY found one that did not call for STORE BOUGHT eggnog! Thank you - thank you - thank you. Can't wait to make this for my hubby for Christmas.

There are so many recipes I would love to try, but with hubbys allergies to eggs, wheat, I find it difficult to substituting ingredients to make it as tasty a the original recipes. If I were a young woman, I wouldn't mind experimenting. Hopfully some day others will take the challenge.. Love you Paula Deen, hope to see you back on TV, hosting a cooking show. Love that you are coming up with so many new ideas..

Could this be made by substituting real egg-nog for the evaporated milk?

Why is it called Egg Nog Custard pie if no egg nog is in it? I thought I found a new recipe.

Paula, I love the way this pie looks, it looks homemade to me and looks like something I would make. It also sounds delicious and I am going to make it!! Cannot wait!! I also would like to say how much I admire you and your courage,from the start of your business when you were raising your kids, to becoming a gracious and fun television hostess to facing your adversaries (who, I am sure, live in glass houses!)!! Best of luck and well wishes to you always, Paula Deen!!

Can you freeze a custard pie and still have the same consistency?

By Carol Goode on July 27, 2013


Pauls, I have not tried your eggnog pie yet, but it doesn't look as good as most of your pies, but looks can be deceiving. I would like to challenge you to a pie contest, I think my Lemon Meringue is the best there is. So let me know if your up to the challenge. Hope to hear from you soon. Sincerely Hattie Gladish/Pie Lady
