This is what Christmas turns into when my brother Paul comes home over break. No matter how often I go to the grocery store or how well stocked our pantry and fridge may be, by the time I venture into the kitchen to get a bowl of Raisin Bran all that’s left is an empty box sitting on the shelf giving me false hope.
When I go to confront him in a rage of hunger he just smiles and says “Merry Christmas.”
You can bake an eggnog pie or make the filling from scratch but I just wanted to give a simple 2 ingredient filling that can be made in a flash. It’s a great dessert to make the night before a party, just keep it in the fridge until ready to serve.
