      Just a helpful tip for those that need to know as i did. 7/8 cup equals 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons........ 7/8 tablespoon equals 2 and 1/2 teaspoons.

      I use this recipe all the time! Why buy half and half when you can make it as you need it. I melt 1 Tsp of butter in a measuring cup, let cool for a minute, fill with milk to equal one cup. Viola Cream! Glad to see this on Zaar ;) ~V

      That was so simple. I noticed that the recipe used equal amounts of milk & butter, I used 1/2 C butter and 1/2 C milk. It turned out frothy on the top, but the goodness was beneath. I plan to experiment with the other comment suggestions/tips. Otherwise ~ Thanks so much for sharing such a FAB substitution!
