Yield:
1 pie
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 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
Directions

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.

Easy to make. The pie tastes better if made a day before and let to sit in the refrigerator over night. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is the BEST dessert ever! I cook this so much I barely have to look at the recipe anymore! It is so easy to make and soooo tasty!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This did not turn out as great as it sounded. I think it needs more of the "spices" flavoring in it. Also, it didn't seem quite as rich without cream and using the evaporated milk. I like the idea of an eggnog custard pie, but this recipe didn't quite cut it for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
You absolutely have to bake the crust first! The custard itself was delicious but the crust was a soggy mess! Wish the receipe had been more specific about the crust. item not reviewed by moderator and published
BAKE THE CRUST FIRST!!! This was a soggy disaster, with a shriveled up, gooey, raw crust!! The custard is delicious, which is its only saving grace. Skip the water bath next time, or bake the crust first. So much for a special treat for Christnas dessert...how embarrassing! It's staying in the fridge, hidden away. item not reviewed by moderator and published
certainly was easy to make, I made it the way the recipe called for. It was a bit too bland for my tastes. I will be looking for a recipe with more flavor next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
wonderful recipe ..light flavor if you use the water..or definitely substitute 3/4 c egg nog if you're an egg nog lover like my husband..gives it a little more richness. Make it the night before..its much better the next day! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The texture came out kind of like a flan, which is my husband's favorite desert anyway, but it tasted just like eggnog. I definately will add this to the recipes and make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was excellent. The chocolate layer really added some zip. I would probably cut back on the brandy a tad, it was very powerful (but good item not reviewed by moderator and published
