I asked mike what to make for sundays dessert one day, and he suggested eggnog pie. Neither of us has ever had it before, and I didn't think I'd even find a recipe! But sure enough, there were lots. I tried this one, from food.com, and it was sooo good! We had to make it 3 times over the holidays. Can't wait for Christmas!
