For those of you worried about raw eggs in your nog, this is the perfect recipe for you! This recipe is a family favorite passed down from Starlette’s mother-in-law. She also likes to add it to coffee cakes, cookies, and marshmallows. Double the recipe and share with friends!
-1 pint whole milk
-1 cup heavy Cream or whipping cream
-1 can evaporated milk
-1/4 cup vanilla sugar
-2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
-1 Vanilla bean (Use the extract and bean from your mother jar or whatever you have will work great too!)
-3oz or more of rum (optional)
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon pumpkin spice seasoning or any combination you want to add.
-Sprinkle of nutmeg
1. Place ingredients in a blender [except the vanilla bean], blend on high for about a minute.
- Pour into a container
- Split the vanilla bean and add the seeds and bean to the eggnog and stir.
- Shake well before using. It’s best made in advance. Remove the whole bean before bottling for gifting.
**Note: This recipe can easily be made into regular eggnog by adding 1 egg yoke at the beginning and folding it in 4 whipped egg whites at the end.
A big thank you to Starlette for sharing her family recipe:)
