The Greenbrier Cold Bourbon Soufflé

Yield 10 to 12 servings


  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups bourbon
  • 16 eggs, separated
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups whipping cream, whipped
  • 1 cup whipping cream, whipped
  • Toasted pecan halves
  • Toasted pecans, chopped

How to Make It

  1. Cut a piece of aluminum foil long enough to fit around a 2- quart soufflé dish, allowing a 1- inch overlap. Fold foil lengthwise into thirds. Lightly oil one side of foil; wrap foil around outside of dish, oiled side against dish, allowing foil to extend 4 inches above rim to form a collar. Secure foil with string or freezer tape. Set aside.

  2. Soften gelatin in bourbon in top of a double boiler. Cook over boiling water, stirring constantly, until gelatin dissolves.

  3. Beat egg yolks in a large mixing bowl until thick and lemon colored. Combine eggs, bourbon mixture, and vanilla in top of a double boiler; mix well. Cook over boiling water, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and coats a metal spoon. Cool to room temperature.

  4. Beat egg whites (at room temperature) and salt in a large mixing bowl until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until mixture forms stiff glossy peaks.

  5. Stir one - third of meringue into bourbon mixture with a wire whisk. Fold in remaining meringue and 2 cups whipped cream.

  6. Spoon mixture into prepared soufflé dish; chill until set. Garnish with 1 cup whipped cream and toasted pecans. Spoon into individual serving bowls.
