Hands-on: 15 Minutes
Total: 7 Hours, 15 Minutes


1 3/4 cups heavy cream
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup bourbon
1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Whisk together first 5 ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, 10 to 12 minutes or until mixture reaches a chilled pudding-like thickness. Remove from heat; stir in bourbon and vanilla. Cool to room temperature (about 1 hour). Place plastic wrap directly on mixture (to prevent a film from forming), and chill 6 to 24 hours.
