This is a wonderful Eggnog pie for this season..for your holiday parties a eggnog pie recipe.
The recipe is as follows:
1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
4 eggs separated
1 cup sugar or equivalent
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup hot water
2 tablespoons rum
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 baked pie shell or make your own
1/2 recipe of whipped cream topping ( I would use real cream)
Chopped toasted almonds.
Soften gelatin in cold water for 5 minutes. Combine egg yolks with half of the sugar. add salt and hot water cook over boiling water (this is a double boiler) keep mixing until it starts to cover the spoon. Add gelatin and dissolve in hot custard. Cool. When the mixture begins to thicken, beat egg whites until stiff. Beat in remaining sugar about 1/2 cup, rum and nutmeg fold into mixture. Turn into a pastry shell and chill. Spread with whipped cream topping and sprinkle with almonds.
This will make 1 – 9″ pie.
I would experiment by using eggnog rather using hot water. It would be richer, I bet better.
I would like to wish you a Blessed New Year for 2015.
