SRC – No Bake Eggnog Pudding Pie from I am a Honey Bee

Well Dined | No Bake Eggnog Pudding Pie

I'm gonna be honest with you guys - I totally messed up this pie, in three different steps. Ugh. More on that later. But as it turns out, it didn't even matter - it still came out super delicious!  So I definitely call that a win.

We are doing a special Holiday Treats edition of the Secret Recipe Club!  My assigned blog was I am a Honey Bee written by Nicole.  We both live on the East coast and share a love of Buffy, tattoos, Greece, eggs bene, and a fear of open water and having to open gifts in front of others.  I like that her blog includes reviews in addition to recipes, just like mine!

Anyway, I went to look for desserts on her blog and noticed a page called The Year of Pies, where she posted a pie recipes every week for a year.  A year!  I didn't to look at any other category, ladies and gentlemen, I was home.  But would it be caramel pie? One of four different kinds of chess pie?  Maybe Reese's or Thin Mint pie?  So many to choose from!  It was around this time that I began to feel woefully inadequate for my own dessert selection, and sorry for whoever drew my blog...  I hope you were able to find something!

I scrolled down to the end of the year to look for holiday dessert and saw this No Bake Eggnog Pudding Pie.  I love eggnog!  And easy recipes!  I wanted to make this right away.

Eggnog Ice Cream Affogato

Well Dined | Eggnog Ice Cream Affogato

Eggnog ice cream - why have I never thought of that before?!  With the eggs, cream, and sugar - it's the perfect base!  Creamy, spicy, and delicious - this is the perfect winter ice cream.  And it's even better topped with fresh espresso as an affogato!

Well Dined | Eggnog Ice Cream

Eggnog, cream, orange extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, and rum come together to form the base; which freezes up soft and creamy.

To take it to the next level, pour a espresso over the ice cream to make an affogato.

Two scoops and a lungo or double-shot is the perfect amount for breakfast or a snack.  It look's like we might be getting another snow storm out here in the NE, and I know what will be keeping me warm!

Eggnog Ice Cream
from Scoop Adventures
Buy the fattiest, full-of-sugar eggnog that you can find because it will make the best ice cream.

2 cups eggnog (no rum added)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 tsp orange extract
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tbsp dark rum

Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk to combine. If eggnog and cream were refrigerated, you may pour the mixture directly into an ice cream maker. If eggnog and cream were not fully chilled, place in a refrigerator until mixture is chilled (1 to 2 hours).

Once mixture is chilled and in the ice cream maker, freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Scoop into a freezer safe container and place plastic or parchment over ice cream (to prevent ice crystals) and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.
