Dear SOS: Could you please print the recipe for Kansas City Ice Cream? I was going to make some for the Fourth of July but found I had lost the recipe. Everyone was really disappointed. I have been making it for years. It’s the best.

Dear Marcia: Did they all scream for ice cream? Or did they just pout about it? This ran in the Food section July 23, 1987. It’s a crowd pleaser.

1

Mix the cornstarch with 1/4 cup milk until smooth. Add 3/4 cup of milk and cook in the top of a double boiler set over, but not touching, simmering water until thick and smooth, about 10 minutes, beating constantly to avoid lumps.

2

Blend the sugar, eggs, salt and evaporated milk in an electric mixer. Add the hot cornstarch mixture and beat well. Add the whipping cream, remaining milk and vanilla extract.

3

Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. You may have to do this in 2 batches.
