Ingredients

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together sugar and eggs until fluffy and pale yellow. In a saucepot, combine half-and-half and cream. Bring to a simmer, but do not boil. Remove from heat. Stirring constantly, slowly blend cream mixture, 1 ladle at a time, into the egg mixture. Stirring will ensure that the eggs will not scramble. Add vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Strain through a fine sieve and chill overnight, or for a minimum of 4 hours. When ready to use, whisk Creole cream cheese into the custard mixture until all lumps are removed. Pour into a home-style ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Place ice cream in the freezer for 2 hours prior to serving.

Cook's Note

Creole cream cheese was historically eaten in Louisiana from the 1800s to the 1980s. Production of the product ceased until Chef John Folse's Bittersweet Plantation Dairy began manufacturing and distributing Creole cream cheese in the fall of 2002. Use this unique Creole favorite in this recipe or as an alternative to sour cream.
