The marriage of eggnog and pumpkin

Although I do not like eggnog, while trying it for the something-like-the-11th year in a row, I decided it might be okay if mixed with pumpkin.  That became this year's Thanksgiving challenge - create the perfect dessert to combine eggnog and pumpkin.  Tomorrow, or rather later today, we will be eating pumpkin eggnog swirl cheesecake.  That will be plenty of dessert for our family for Thanksgiving, but the next in line is a pumpkin/eggnog layered pie, perhaps followed by a layered pumpkin/eggnog pudding pie.  We're gonna be HUGE by the time this holiday season is over!  Hey, I used light eggnog and 1/3 less fat cream cheese - we're still being health conscious.

I'm not a big eggnog fan, either, but that sounds (and looks) delicious! :D Yum! Eat an extra slice for me. ;)

Eggnog (and actually pumpkin pie) falls into the category of things that if you have to try that hard to like then they're not worth liking. I gave up on it years ago. But I wish you success in finding the perfect combo!
BTW - thought of you the other day when I was making caramel popcorn :)

Creative... I never thought of putting the two together. Sounds like a mighty tasty time at your place. We might have to invite ourselves over sometime. :)
