Here is an unusual dish; remarkably simple for something your guests will think remarkably professional. A very nice dessert
to get you through the last frost
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Butter or grease a two-quart glass baking dish. Slice croissants into 1-inch pieces and press to line bottom and sides of dish. Sprinkle raisins on. In a bowl, combine milk and cream, eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla, and nutmeg. Beat until light and frothy. Pour over croissants and press with a spoon to soak croissants. Cover with foil and set aside. Let stand 20 minutes. Set pudding into a large pan of 2-inch hot water and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake again for 20 more minutes. Remove from heat and cool, taking out of water. Let rest before serving.
