Chilled cafe au lait

This is my favorite version of iced coffee — it comes out cold and creamy, but the ice cubes stay behind!

In a small Melitta cone (one that takes a #2 filter), place a filter and 3 T medium-grind coffee. Boil some water.

Put 3/4 C of ice cubes into a 12-oz stainless-steel cocktail shaker.

Place the Melitta over the cocktail shaker and fill it with boiling water. When the water has passed through the grounds, remove the Melitta.

Add 1 C milk or soymilk and sweetener to taste to the cocktail shaker. Put the lid on and shake well. Strain into a large glass.
