Step 1

Preheat oven to 350. Rub the garlic all over the inside of a 3-quart baking dish, then mince it. Grease dish with about 1/2 tbs butter.
Slice the potatoes on a mandolin. In a large saucepan combine the minced garlic, the remaining 2-1/2 tbs butter, half&half, creme fraiche, flour, thyme, mace, 2-1/2 tsps salt & pepper to taste. Bring to a boil over medium high heat and cook, stirring, until mixture thickens, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in the chives and transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish, shaking it to distribute evenly. Bake uncovered until potatoes are tender, about 1 hour 5 minutes, occasionally spooning some of the liquid over the top. Let cool about 10 minutes before serving.

*Can be made in individual ramekins, bake about 40 minutes.
