  1. I love your recipe. Please help me! What can I use intead the heavy cream?

    1. Here is a substitute for heavy cream:

      3/4 cup whole milk
      1/3 cup butter

      Melt butter. Pour it into the milk and stir well. It makes 1 cup of heavy cream. Use only the amount indicated above for recipe (2 tablespoons).
