How To Make eggnog cream pie

  • 1
    In the bowl of a stand mixer, stir the whole wheat pastry flour, all purpose flour, sugar and salt together until combined.
  • 2
    Stir in cold butter until it's the size of peas. With the mixer on low, stream in ice cold water by the tablespoons until dough starts coming together.
  • 3
    It should be moist but not sticky. If you grab a few pieces and squeeze them in your hand they should stick together without leaving a residue on your hands.
  • 4
    Form dough into two disks, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use. Recipe will make 2 pie crusts.
  • 5
    When ready to make the pie crust, remove one disk of dough from the refrigerator and sit out for 10-15 minutes to make it easier to roll.
  • 6
    Preheat oven to 400. Flour board and rolling pin and roll out dough to a large circle.
  • 7
    Place in pie pan, cut off extra dough and scallop the top edges of the crust. Prick bottom of crust with a fork.
  • 8
    Bake for 10-12 minutes or until crust looks dry and top edges are barely golden. Set aside to cool.
  • 9
    For the filling, whip cream until soft peaks form. Set in refrigerator until ready to use.
  • 10
    Whisk eggnog, milk and instant vanilla pudding together until smooth.
  • 11
    Let it thicken 3-5 minutes. Fold half the whipped cream into eggnog pudding and pour into cooled pie shell.
  • 12
    Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 plus hours. Make sure the whipped cream makes it back into the fridge too.
  • 13
    When ready to serve, pipe whipped cream around edge of pie and top with chocolate shavings. Serve.
