Just a few ingredients -- egg yolks, sugar, milk, cream, and nutmeg -- create the wonderfully distinctive flavor of that favorite holiday drink, eggnog. These eggnog recipes can be spiked to your liking with rum, bourbon, or brandy, or enjoyed in nonalcoholic form by guests of all ages. In addition to classic and easy eggnog recipes, we gathered our best eggnog desserts, including cheesecake bars and panna cotta.
This make-ahead recipe from Canlis chef Jason Franey uses an innovative water bath technique to keep the stuffing from drying out before it hits the holiday table. Pair with his Slow-Roasted Heritage Turkey with Orange and Sage and Cranberry-Orange Jam for a one-of-a-kind Thanksgiving feast.
The layered finish that tops this apple pie from our Pies & Tarts book is created by shingling the leaves. Pastry cutouts in any shape can be arranged in this manner; here, a flurry of leaves accentuates the pie's autumnal nature.
