Wow, this is one of my favorite recipes that I have found so far. It is so beautiful and yet super easy to make too. What a wonderful dessert to take to a holiday party at Christmas time or even at Thanksgiving. ----- A cross between a cream pie and cheesecake. Even those that are not a fan of eggnog will enjoy this one!

I hope you enjoy.
