French Vanilla Ice Cream

This recipe makes 2 quarts.

3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 cups milk
2 cups cream (or undiluted evaporated milk)
2 teaspoons vanilla

In a medium saucepan beat eggs and milk. Add sugar mixing well.

Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. It should coat a metal spoon. This will take 10-12 minutes.

Cool. I cool mine by pouring into a mixing bowl and setting in freezer.

Add cream or evaporated milk and vanilla.

Leave in refrigerator overnight.

Freeze in your ice cream machine or you can sit bowl in freezer and stir every 2-3 hours, very well. As it starts to freeze you will to shorten the intervals between stirrings.

Grannie's Oatmeal Drop Cookies

I love these cookies. Used to make them for my children all the time.

2 cups sugar
6 Tablespoons Cocoa
1½ teaspoons cinnamon powder
½ cup milk
½ cup butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla
3 ¾ - 4 cups Oatmeal

In a medium saucepan mix the dry ingredients well. Stir in the milk very well. Add butter. Heat over medium heat to a boil, stirring constantly. Once it boils, boil for 2 full minutes.

Remove pan from heat and add oatmeal.

Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper.

Let cool completely, about 4 hours.
