Chocolate-Swirl Eggnog Pie Recipe

Chocolate-Swirl Eggnog Pie Recipe

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup butter, melted

3 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips, melted

FILLING:

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons cornstarch

2 cups eggnog

1 envelope unflavored gelatin

1/4 cup cold water

3/4 teaspoon rum extract

1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted

1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

How to make it

In a bowl, combine the flour, walnuts, brown sugar, butter and chocolate. Press into a 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until set. Cool completely on a wire rack.

For filling, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Stir in eggnog until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.

In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute. Stir into eggnog mixture until gelatin is dissolved. Divide mixture in half. Stir rum extract into one half; fold chocolate into the other half. Cover and refrigerate until partially set.

Fold cream into rum-flavored filling; spoon into crust. Spoon chocolate filling over the top; cut through with a knife to swirl the chocolate. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
Yield: 8 servings.
