  1. This is basically the same as our snow ice cream recipe. Simply fantastic! Kids (and grown ups) LOVE it! What a treat!!!
  2. I have made this for as long as I remember, when I lived back in PA! I since have moved to AZ, with no snow. This is the ONE thing I miss about snow, but that is about it. My kids still live back east with the snowy winters, and I taught them how to make it, and they have for my grandkids now. I didn't use heavy cream, just milk. I also would add cocoa to make chocolate snow cream. You can also add some of your favorite jello to it to make flavored snow cream. Just don't use the whole pack. One more point---don't use the first snow, always wait until the second snow. Don't use yellow or brown or speckled snow either. This was my Grandma's rule when making snow cream!!!


Hi! My name is Terri. I have been happily married for 28 years to Jim. We have 3 children, 2 girls and 1 boy. I have a grandaughter, Delilah. She is 18 months old. We live in a rural area. We are animal lovers. We have 8 dogs, 6 cats, 2 rabbits and we have lots of ducks and geese. I love to cook and love to try new recipes. My favorite cookbook is an old Betty Crocker Cookbook that I have had before I was married. I like to sew, crochet and to do crafts. I am a 4-H Club Leader and I have a great group of kids this year. They keep me very busy and I wouldn't have it any other way. We do 3 fairs in the area. I also like to go to auctions, yard sales and I am always buying items from the kids that they are selling to raise money for school, church or a youth group. <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> img <img src=""> [img][/img]
