  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour until fragrant, 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Gradually whisk in cold stock. Reduce heat to low. Bring gravy to a simmer, and cook and stir until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in heavy cream, and season with salt, white pepper, and cayenne pepper.

This is similar to the old Fanny Farmer chicken pot pie gravy recipe. I add a touch of poultry seasoning to mine and a dash of nutmeg. I then pour it over roughly cubed chicken, drained can of...

Made this gravy tonight. The texture is very nice and it has a nice shine to it. However, both my husband and I thought it was somewhat bland and maybe even a little "flour-y" tasting. There ...
