Effie's Graham Cracker Ice Cream

When Aunt Effie passed away in September of 1979, all of her things were dispersed to all the family. Some went to Jerry's house, some to Ed's; Grandma and Grandpa kept a few things, and Grandma gave to me the two donkey planters that used to sit on a shelf in Effie's kitchen, two of her homemade aprons, and three of her cookbooks. Later on, in the 90's, Grandpa had a plastic garbage bag with quite a few glass items that had belonged to Effie, many cracked and broken because of the lack of care, and I got to go through these items choosing a few more things that had belonged to Effie. These sit up on my shelf above the books in my dining room. I cherish all of these things and their link to Aunt Effie from so long ago.
Hand-written in Effie's hand were several recipes in the three cook books, and I print them here for all of you to try and enjoy. Some recipes do not have directions, and some directions on the recipes are not clear at all; you will have to figure them out for yourself.

Graham Cracker Ice Cream

1/2 cup sugar
1 pint coffee cream
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine and freeze; when partly froaen, take out and whip until smooth and fluffy; continue freezing.
1 pint is 16 ounces or 2 cups.
Graham crackers are easily crumbed in a blender or food processor.
