Gluten Free Eggnog Pie

Gluten Free Eggnog PieEggnog is just delicious- and such a holiday treat!  Ever since I was little it has been a favorite!  I can remember begging my mother to buy it as soon as it arrived in the grocery store.  This year while playing around on Pinterest I discovered several recipes for eggnog pie.  Yum, yum, and more yum!  My husband loves eggnog too- so this was the perfect new desert to add to our holiday fun!

Eggnog is a traditional holiday beverage; served from Thanksgiving to New Year’s here in America.  It is made of eggs (shocker!), milk, cream, sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon.  Traditionally it was made with raw eggs- but due to FDA regulations American eggnog is not raw.  It dates to the mid-17th century and was probably invented in England.  Most likely it was derived from an older milk drink from Medieval England called posset- which did not contain eggs.  Eggnog arrived in America with English settlers in the mid-1700’s and quickly became a favorite beverage.  Eggnog traditionally contains alcohol- brandy is the choice in England and in America it’s bourbon.
