GRAZING ALONG THE CROOKED ROAD

“GRAZING ALONG THE CROOKED ROAD”

What a Yummy Ice Cream- And Sooo Easy!

Catchy title isn’t it? My friend Pamela, gave me a recipe from a most interesting book titled "Grazing Along the Crooked Road," by Betty Skeens. It is for homemade ice cream and the good news is that it doesn't require the use of an ice cream maker!

The book can almost be used as a guide for the 253 mile route of Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail and features festivals, music venues and to quote Laura Neary’s comment in the Roanoke Times, “recipes that existed only in the memories of mountain folks for generations.” I really like that idea so I decided to try the family recipe submitted by Angela Naff for “Home Made Ice Cream.”

Beautiful Dessert

It was simple enough to make and it is true that no ice cream freezer is needed. So, here it is. Hope you like it. As for me, I’m going to see if the book is on Kindle!

HOME MADE ICE CREAM

Ingredients:

2-3oz pkgs cream cheese 2/3 c cottage cheese 1 c. sugar 3 beaten egg yolks 1 tsp vanilla 1 pint whipping cream 3 stiffly beaten egg whites Graham cracker crumbs

Method:

Cream the cheese and cottage cheese well. Add sugar and egg yolks. Mix thoroughly. Add vanilla and whipping cream that has already been whipped. Fold in the egg whites. Line a 9x9” pan with Graham cracker crumbs. Freeze. Cut into squares and serve.

Serves 6

You can use toppings like chocolate syrup or fresh strawberries.

I have a confession to make. I hurried the recipe along and added 2-8oz packages of cream cheese instead of the required 3oz's. Guess what? It still was fabulous. I can only wonder what it will be like when I try it the right way!

  10. Looks yummy! In my country, an ice cream maker is quite expensive. I guess this one compensates for those who want homemade ice cream but cannot afford the equipment.
