First you get some clean, fresh snow. If your husband gets it for you, you get a huge amount: Yes, we made cookies that morning while waiting for it to stop snowing. They are called Pride of Kansas Cookies. Yummy! And while we had a snowstorm outside, we had a tornado inside, so don't look at the mess.
Put however much snow you want to use in another bowl and add heavy whipping cream if you have it, if you don't, whole milk or even 2% will do. Keep adding cream(or milk) until you get a good consistency. Also add in sugar and vanilla to taste. That's it!
It seems like I remember something we had as a kid called Ice Milk that came in a container like ice cream. Anyone else remember that?
Here is Dominic, eating his cookie and snow ice cream, and drinking his hot chocolate. No matter how long you have been playing out in the snow, you can always eat a little snow ice cream!
