ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Tear croissants into pieces and put in a small gratin dish.
  • Put sugar and water into a saucepan, and swirl around to help dissolve the sugar before putting the saucepan on the burner over medium to high heat.
  • Caramelize the sugar and water mixture by letting it bubble away until it all turns a deep amber color. This will take 3-5 minutes.
  • Turn heat down to low and add heavy cream. Whisk in whole milk and bourbon. Take off the heat and, still whisking, add eggs.
  • Pour the caramel bourbon custard over the croissants and leave to steep for 10 minutes if the croissants are very stale.
  • Place in oven for 20 minutes….
  • Serves 2 greedy people!

    I came across this recipe in a recent People magazine. I can't believe I had missed out on this before! I needed a dessert for just the two of us for Thanksgiving and we loved the texture/taste. I just used store-bought croissants and added a touch of cinnamon. So glad to see it posted here so I don't lose the page I tore out of our magazine. Happy Holidays!

    Fantastic, great flavor, light like creme brulee! So easy and quick to whip up. I cooked it about 15 minutes longer than stated. Don't omit the bourbon whiskey. I think that's what makes it! Had it hot out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream. Thought I'd died and went to heaven!!!
