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.
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + freezing
- 1 cup half-and-half cream
- 2/3 cup sugar
