1 1/2 cups eggnog

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup granulated sugar

Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 350°F (175°C).

In a medium saucepan, whisk eggnog, heavy cream, sugar, and cornstarch over medium heat until it gently boils, stirring constantly.

In a separate bowl, whisk egg yolks. Gradually add a bit of the hot eggnog mixture to the yolks, whisking constantly (to temper them).

Slowly pour the tempered egg mixture back into the saucepan, whisking continuously.

Bake the Pie:

Pour the filling into the pie crust.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until set but slightly jiggly in the center.
