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.
