The beginnings of Fall have arrived.
The cooler mornings that I love, the leaves beginning to change and lots of apples at the Farmer’s Market. I even pulled out the flannel pajamas this week!
I think most of you would agree that Fall and apples can only mean one thing – apple pie. I love a good apple pie. I don’t like making pie crust. That is why I love my Easy Apple Pie recipe so much. There is no pie crust. If you haven’t made this apple pie before you must. Remember, no pie crust!
This week I decided since it wasn’t totally Fall yet and our afternoons were still pretty warm that I would make a different version of apple pie -
Apple Pie Ice Cream
Apple Pie Ice Cream has all the flavors and things I love about apple pie but in an ice cream form. Of course there are yummy, cinnamon and sugar coated apples along with the crunch of cinnamon graham crackers. What apple pie would be complete without a scoop of ice cream on top. Apple Pie Ice Cream has the ice cream built in! This particular ice cream has the addition of cinnamon making it even more delicious.
The first step is to caramelize your apples. I used Granny Smith’s because I like a nice tart apple in my apple pie.
Next you mix up your ice cream base and put it into the ice cream maker and process until the ice cream is thick. Then stir in the caramelized apples and broken up cinnamon graham crackers. Put into the freezer to harden up.
In order to make this Apple Pie Ice Cream even more amazing I topped it off with caramel sauce!
You can use store bought caramel sauce or my yummy caramel sauce recipe would be even more delicious!
I made the ice cream in my table top 2 qt. Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker.
I loved all the cinnamony goodness in the ice cream – cinnamon sugar apples, cinnamon ice cream and cinnamon graham crackers.
