1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 (11.5-ounce) package Creole cream cheese* (recommended: Bittersweet Plantation Dairy Creole Cream Cheese)
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.
