Snow Cream Recipe-Snow Day Fun

I guess I will have to move to some artic place like Alaska to make that happen. Snow Cream Recipe thebearfootbaker.comIt snowed this week so I finally got a chance to make some. It actually snowed once before this year but, my grandma always told me not to make snow cream with the first snow of the season. I am sure it was an old wives tale but, I listened to my grandma and never disobeyed anything she said.
