When I was a little girl, I read (and re-read) the Little House Books. One of the things the girls did was make Sugar Snow. I always said I wanted to do that but, of course,never have. Then, recently I started hearing about Snow Cream. I decided that in the first BIG snow of the year, I would make some . . .and we finally had that storm at the beginning of February. I used this Paula Dean recipe that calls for Evaporated Milk and it was to die for - seriously. A friend of mine shared this recipe from Childbearing has Stolen Their Brains which just uses milk and sugar.
This is what inspired me to make Snow Cream! Look at all of that snow!!!
