Some of us sort of joked about having an eggnog group last year, so I decided to make it happen this year. Crazy as it seems, Christmas in around the corner. Lets get the yummy eggnog recipes shared.

Finally made the recipe for Eggnog Cheesecake w/Pomegranate Glaze and it's incredible!

My husband Anthony & I loved the contrast of the tart pomegranate seeds and creamy cheesecake. We loved the flavor of gingersnaps in the crust as well. Definitely a really pretty cake and perfect to serve for the holidays!

MY EGGNOG LOVIN' FRIENDS.....I'm so happy it's that time of year!

I want to share another recipe that I forgot to post in the group last year. It's called Eggnog Creme Brulee and it was easy to make & perfect for holiday dessert! Even my husband ate it and he doesn't like the Nog. lol ---- It was so creamy & nogalicious too!

Had this beauty for dessert last night....

My husband Anthony made his chicken paprikash and then we had this decadent dessert called Elegant Eggnog Dessert . This is really easy to make and really delicious!

Want a "Diabetic Friendly" ---- sugar free, low-fat recipe for Nog? Check out recipe I am posting.

This one is a cook recipe but still worth the time. I did adjust the recipe for less sugar as the original stated for 1 cup of sugar but my guests and myself thought it was too sweet. Elegant Eggnog

Eggnog custard with Rasberry sauce

½ cup cold water

2½ teaspoons powdered gelatin

2 cups eggnog

2 tablespoons bourbon (optional)

1 cup heavy cream

¼ cup sugar

½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

½ cup raspberry jam


1. Place the cold water in a small heat-safe bowl and sprinkle the gelatin on top of it. Let it sit for 5 minutes to bloom.

2. Melt the bloomed gelatin in the microwave, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Stir to make sure it is fully dissolved.

3. Pour the eggnog into a large bowl, then whisk the melted gelatin into the eggnog. Add the bourbon, if using, and whisk to combine.

4. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip the cream, sugar and vanilla extract to medium peaks.

5. Gently fold the whipped cream into the eggnog mixture, mixing just to combine.

6. Pour the custard into 6 small bowls, cups or ramekins, leaving at least ½ inch of space at the top of the containers. Transfer the custards to the refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes (or up to overnight).

7. To serve, dollop 1 tablespoon of jam onto each portion and use the back of a spoon to gently smooth it to the edges. Serve chilled. (This recipe can be made up to three days ahead and kept refrigerated.)

Note: Looking to serve a crowd? This recipe doubles easily. Not enough small dishes on hand? Just pour the finished custard into a large serving bowl and increase the chilling time to 2 hours. To serve, scoop the custard into bowls and swirl in the jam.
