Autumn Apples Week {Day 4 ~ Apple Pie Ice Cream}

Welcome to Day 4 of Autumn Apples Week! Don't forget to enter the giveaway {Day 1} for tea & muffins and link up your apple recipes or posts {Day 3} if you have some! Hope you're having fun celebrating Autumn this week!

 
Apple Pie. Still one of the top pies in America. Most people would agree that the best way to eat apple pie is "a la mode." And it is delicious. So I thought to myself...why not just combine the apple pie and the "a la mode" into one dessert? Mmmmm...and so I bring you Apple Pie Ice Cream.


Apple Pie Ice Cream

1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup Apple Salsa
1/3 - 1/2 cup crumbled Pie Crust Chips
1/3 cup Buttery Cinnamon Sauce

In bowl, whisk together milk and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add heavy cream, vanilla, and cinnamon. Whisk until combined. Turn on ice cream maker and pour mixture into freezer bowl through spout. After 18-20 minutes {mixture should be fairly thick}, add Apple Salsa and crumbled Pie Crust Chips through spout. After additional 3-5 minutes, turn off ice cream maker. Transfer ice cream to another bowl and gently swirl the Buttery Cinnamon Sauce into the mixture. Can be served immediately or frozen to harden more for a couple of hours. This recipe is for a 1 1/2 quart ice cream maker.

I highly recommend serving this with pie crust chips on the side - such a delicious combo. My family agreed that this ice cream is best right after it's made. We prefer it with the soft and creamy consistency. But it's still yummy after it freezes solid!


Bonus - awesome use for the mini pie tins that have been in my cupboard forever!

If you didn't have time to whip up all the ingredients, but you just happen to have some apple pie - I say chop up a slice and throw it in the ice cream! That would be an awesome shortcut!

Come on back tomorrow for Day 5 of Autumn Apples Week and another giveaway!!

What's your favorite kind of pie? Favorite kind of ice cream?

  1. YUMMY! That does sound divine. My favorite kind of pie goes back and forth between chocolate cream and key lime. My favorite ice cream is homemade peanut butter. Okay it's only 6:20am and I want ice cream now, thanks! LOL!
