 Old-Fashioned Frozen Vanilla Custard
Not too long ago, I found this recipe for a frozen treat we used to eat when we went to Grandma's house. Now, whenever I make it, it reminds me of her. She loved to bake, and so do I.
8 ServingsPrep: 20 min. + freezing


  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract

  • constantly, until thickened. Cool. Pour into chilled ice cube trays

  • mixture. Return to trays or pan and freeze. Yield: 1 quart.
