Salted Gingerbread Pots de Creme
Salted Gingerbread Pots de Creme. That’s really all I can say about this.
Wait, fine no. I guess I can’t just drop that there and walk away. A rich, silky custard with gingerbread spices, sea salt and crushed gingerbread cookies deserves more than a one liner. So here’s the detail:
Pots de creme is just a fancy name for baked custard – cream and egg yolks whipped together and cooked in ramekins. This gingerbread pots de creme combines seasonal flavors of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg with butterscotch and bourbon with a dash of smoky sea salt to come together in a silky, creamy and perfectly spiced custard. It’s really as good as it sounds and even easier to make. Trust me when I say you will LOVE it as much as we did.
Now that you know more about these pots de creme, can we talk about what to get a baby for Christmas? And yes, I am one of those people who still need to shop although I did most of our family last weekend. But back to the baby… what do you mamas get your babies for their first Christmas? Baby E is 5 months old and right now doesn’t do much so I should be thinking ahead right? I need some ideas please. THANK YOU!
Back to the dessert > these pots de creme are the perfect last minute holiday dessert to whip up. Even if you are not entertaining this week, you need them in your winter line up.

I love pot de creme and I’ve never thought to make it with gingerbread flavors…so thank you!! These look so rich, creamy, and perfect. And I would just get my babies necessities, toys, and books that they would like. You know, things that make noise! haha Hope you have a wonderful first Christmas with your little man!
Hahha he loves anything that makes noise so will do that. Thanks Marcie!!
Sounds amazing!! I deftly need maybe two or three of these just for myself. Oh gosh I have no idea what I got Nadia for her first Christmas I think she got a small bike that she could scoot around in she also got lots of board books and some other educational toys. A piano know which she still plays with today. There isn’t much that they really need at this age so a lot of the toys that we got her were things that she would be able to play with in a few months down the line as she got older.
Thanks Amanda!! He is getting lots of baby toys lol Hope you and Nadia have a great Christmas!
This looks so wonderfully creamy and rich. Plus it doesn’t seem to hard to make … Just what I want for Christmas. Merry Christmas, Zainab!!
