Tons of Cream!

I have a TON of cream leftover (about 6 cartons) from making creme brulee a week ago. What can I do with it?!?!?!

Are there any great desserts I can make? Or dinner food? Or appetizers?

Help, before it goes bad!!

My first thought was MORE creme brulee. There's a great coffee flavored on one here somewhere. SO SO goooood!

How about Malt-0-meal made with cream instead of water? It's a good breakfast.

Or you could do a batch of clam chowder.

Fettucine Alfredo springs to mind. Also, chicken, broccoli, Ziti.

You can also make desert sauces like;
Ganache

Pastry Cream (Creme' de Patissere')

Bavarian Cream

Flavored mouse such as chocolate, raspberry, orange, lime, etc.

Key Lime pie

various custards

ice cream

home made butter

Stabilized Whipped Cream

Seafood Chowders or Bisques

Creamed veggies

Creamed Beef (put some chipped beef in there and serve it over toast points)

Add a bit of cream to fruit smoothies

Pour lightly sweetened cream over fresh stone fruits or berries

finishing sauces

ranch style salad dressing

Hope that gets your imagination going.
