Holiday Cheer

Here is a family recipe for no-egg eggnog. I think your family isn't really big on eggnog, but mine definitely is. Here's a recipe for eggnog with no raw eggs, so you don't have to be creeped out. I love this stuff and Ryan likes it, too.

1 pkg. (3.5 oz) French vanilla instant pudding
5 cups milk
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
1/2 tsp. each nutmeg and cinnamon (for topping each serving)

1. In a blender, combine all ingredients except whipped cream and spices, or beat by hand for two minutes.

2. Blend the mixture into the whipped cream and chill thoroughly.

3. Shake the eggnog just before serving it. Sprinkle the top of each glass with nutmeg and cinnamon if desired.

Also, I made THIS recipe and it will be coming out of the oven in a few minutes. I'm taking some to our book club Christmas party tonight. I don't see how it could be anything but delicious.
