Milk is substituted for cream in this low-fat, adults-only recipe.


  • 6 cups low-fat (1%) milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup brandy, bourbon or rum
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup light whipping cream
  • Freshly grated nutmeg
  • Cooking Directions

    Heat milk in a heavy saucepan over moderately low heat until it just simmers. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, sugar, cornstarch and salt in a bowl. Carefully add the milk in a stream, whisking, and return mixture to the saucepan.

    Cook the mixture over moderately low heat, stirring, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 10 – 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour through a fine sieve into a bowl.

    Stir in the brandy, bourbon or rum and vanilla. Cover with plastic wrap, pressed directly on the surface of the eggnog, and chill 6 hours or overnight. Before serving, gently whisk in the whipping cream and garnish with grated nutmeg. Serves 12.
