Ideas for a pint and a half of heavy cream?

I have 1 1/2 bottles of beautiful heavy cream from a dairy nearby that I got thinking I needed it for guests / desserts at thanksgiving. Plans changed and now I have this beautiful cream and only 2 of us at home, neither one of whom needs mounds of whip cream. Cookies, breads cakes that could be frozen but it is a lot of cream so I am looking for CH thoughts.

    1. I always keep a lg container in the house (I don't usually put it in savory food) but I always make : Home made Ice cream, chocolate mousse, creme brûlée, rice pudding, or malabi with it


        This will use a cup of it.

        You can also freeze it.

          1. if you don't mind a small challenge, it's a nice season to make homemade caramels for little hostess gifts and your 1 and 1/2 pints of cream will make about 150 of them! go on line for recipes.
