If you're looking to add a little Bourbon to your dessert, give this vanilla whiskey napoleon a try. Adding a dry oak kick to a creamy French pastry, this bourbon dessert is for social drinkers and those with a serious sweet tooth.

Frenchman Ludo Lefebvr is a chef, judge/mentor on ABC's 'The Taste' and the owner of two Los Angeles restaurants. Recently, the brilliant cook released his first book 'Crave.' Within the pages of the mouthwatering cookbook is this recipe for vanilla whiskey napoleon. While a napoleaon is a traditional French dessert, Lefebvr brings it overseas and refashions the usual recipe. Adding vanilla whiskey to the unsalted butter and fleur de sel base, Lefebvr allows consumers to create a tasty treat that is sweet, savory and smooth.

With a flaky exterior and creamy insides, this crème pâtissière makes a delicious cultural confection.
