Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. To prepare crust, place crackers in a food processor, process until crumbly. Add 2 tablespoons sugar, butter, and 1 egg white; pulse 5 times or just until moist. Press crumb mixture evenly into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake for 8 minutes; cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.
  4. To prepare filling, spoon yogurt onto several layers of heavy-duty paper towels; spread yogurt to 1/2 inch thickness. Cover with additional paper towels; let stand 5 minutes. Scrape into a bowl using a rubber spatula. Place cream cheeses and vanilla in a bowl; beat with mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine sugar, flour, and salt stirring with a whisk. Add sugar mixture to cheese mixture; beat until combined. Add yogurt to cheese mixture; add eggnog. Beat at low speed just until combined.
  5. Beat 2 egg whites with a mixer at medium speed until soft peaks form. Add 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Gently fold egg whites into the eggnog mixture. Pour filling into prepared crust. Bake for 40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool completely on wire rack. Chill overnight.
  6. To prepare bourbon cream, place the whipped topping in a bowl. Gently fold in 2 tablespoons eggnog and bourbon; chill. Top each pie slice with bourbon cream; sprinkle with nutmeg before serving.
