“Old fashioned cream” is a term that can refer to various types of creams or creamy dishes that have been made in traditional or classic ways. It could refer to a variety of things, such as:

1. Whipped Cream: Whipped cream made from heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract, whipped until it forms soft peaks.Β 

2. Creamy Sauces: Cream-based sauces used in cooking, such as Alfredo sauce or creamy mushroom sauce. These sauces are made from cream, butter, and seasonings, and are often used to coat pasta or meats.

3. Creamy Desserts: Desserts that have a creamy texture, such as custards, puddings, or ice creams. These desserts are typically made with milk, cream, sugar, and flavorings, and are often cooked or frozen to achieve their creamy texture.

4. Clotted Cream: A thick, rich cream made by heating unpasteurized milk and then allowing it to cool slowly. The cream that forms on the surface is then skimmed off and used as a spread or topping.
