No-Bake Egg Nog Pie

No-Bake Eggnog Pie

Two of the best things about the holidays are eggnog and pie. Putting those things together makes them exponentially more wonderful and festive—and turning them into a No-Bake Eggnog Pie is the whipped cream on top. Did we mention there’s whipped cream on top? Oh, and a gingerbread cookie crust. So the “best things about the holidays” count is currently up to four. Make that five. It’s every bit as easy to make as the “no-bake” in the title would suggest.
