I've mentioned before how one of my absolute favorite goodies at Christmastime is anything eggnog.

Forget pumpkin-everything. I spend this time binging on eggnog-everything.

Pancakes, waffles, muffins, bread, cookies, cheesecake, tarts, you name it, if it might work with a little splash of eggnog added in, I'm probably making it.

I've actually never had an eggnog-something recipe turn out badly, but there are a handful that I absolutely have to make every year because they're so incredibly delicious. My system craves it more often, but just can't take the overload more frequently than that.

This eggnog tart recipe is one of those favorites - and probably the favorite of everyone who has been lucky enough to share it with me!

Like my incredible eggnog cheesecake or delicious eggnog cookies, this is one heavenly dessert that you'll love so much, you just might not want to share.

But I promise that if you can manage to share it with family and friends this festive season, your little heart will grow at least three sizes!

What You Need

1 graham cracker crust (of course my crazy-self has to make my winning homemade graham crackers, crush up about a cup and a half of them, mix them with 1/3 cup melted butter, then smoosh it all into a tart pan or pie plate and bake for about 10 minutes at 375 degrees to make my crust)

1 envelope unflavored gelatin (or whatever you substitute for gelatin, because I've heard the stuff is awful for you, but we're still using up our giant, economy-sized box of the normal stuff I got years ago)

1/4 cup water

3 separated eggs

1 can sweetened condensed milk (you know that of course I've tried making my own, but the results have been poor, so I actually still just go with the can for this!)

1 cup whipped cream (I whip up my own using this coconut milk, since G's allergic to dairy)


What You Do

1.  Sprinkle the gelatin over the water in a small saucepan and let it stand for one minute. Stir this over low heat until it's all dissolved (about 5 minutes) and then remove from heat.

2.  In a bowl, beat the egg yolks and then stir in the milk and gelatin.

3.  In another bowl, beat the egg whites until they're stiff, but not dry.

4.  Fold the egg whites and whipped cream into the gelatin mixture. Freeze at least 4 hours (until firm) and then garnish with sprinkled nutmeg on top.

Don't forget to go find some people to share this with after those four hours, otherwise you might turn into a tart from eating the whole thing yourself!
