Snow Ice Cream

It snowed last night. And this time of year, when you're so sick to death of the seeing it that you can't even see straight, what else are you supposed to do but eat the stuff? Mom got this recipe for me off a blanket that dad got from the VA when he was in the hospital once... It's very easy. All you need is some whipping cream, sugar, vanilla...

And of course some *non yellow* ;) SNOW! I dipped up a wee bit more than I needed. heh

Beat the whipping cream, sugar and vanilla.

Fold in as much snow as you need to make your ice cream.

Mix it all together very well so there's no random spots of plain snow. Then dip it up and serve it to your whiny kid who is teething eye teeth. :D

1  1/2 C. heavy whipping cream
1/4 C. sugar
1 T. vanilla
3 qts. snow

Whip the cream & vanilla. Gradually add the sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form, then fold in the snow. Cover tightly and stick it in a snow bank until it's nice and frozen. Drizzle with chocolate or maple syrup.
