Frozen Brown Bread Custard

For substituting the Curacao liqueur, try Grand Marnier, or Cointreau, or an equal amount of frozen orange juice concentrate in a pinch.

3 ounces brown bread crumbs, 2 ounces macaroons, 2 ounces sugar, 1/2 pint whipped cream, 2 yolks of eggs, 1/2 pint of milk, 1 wineglass curaçao liqueur.

Make custard of yolks of eggs, sugar and milk; mix together the breadcrumbs and crushed macaroons, and pour over them the curaçoa; allow them to stand half an hour, then mix all together, and freeze dry. Serve with macaroons.
