1 cup half-and-half or whole milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
6-8 cups fresh fallen snow
Heat the half-and-half in a small saucepan and add the sugar. Stir until dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla. Refrigerate until ice cold. Then, to make the snow cream, put 6 cups of snow in a large mixing bowl. Pour the cold sugar mixture over the snow and stir with a spatula until blended. Add another cup or two of snow if needed.
