Recipe: Eggnog Bavarian Cream Dessert (Homemade)
Try This Delicious Eggnog Dessert
This recipe from a Mc Call's book that I have had for a long time now, gives eggnog a whole new taste!
Typically, eggnog is served as a drink with, or without alcohol. Whatever your prefererence may be, I can tell you that this eggnog dessert is one that will make your eggnog loving guests spin in their chairs!
It is rich and delicious! I even like to have this as a dessert in the summertime if we are having a party at our house.
