Snowed In – Cinnamon Ice Cream

After 12 straight days of snow I think we have finally thawed out.  I have lived in Portland for 26 years and never remember having snow for this long!

Well, when you are stuck in the house because of snow and ice what is the first food that comes to mind?  Hot chocolate, homemade soup, cinnamon rolls???

Last week at our house it was ice cream!  Yes, ice cream.  When I announced I was making ice cream for dessert Cali’s reply was “It’s too cold!”  Logan’s reply was “It’s never too cold for ice cream!”

I have to agree with Logan.

Several months ago I had seen a recipe for Cinnamon Ice Cream over at Rachelle’s blog and copied off the recipe.  I thought it would be perfect to serve with my Blackberry Cobbler or Apple Pie.

I was right.

It was quick and easy to mix up in my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and was the perfect compliment to the Blackberry Cobbler.  I am a cinnamon fan and cinnamon and ice cream are a great combination.

So next time you get snowed in or even if you’re not – make ice cream!

    Oooooh, I MUST try it! One of the very redeeming features of living in the South is Blue Bell ice cream and they have this Snickerdoodle ice cream that makes me gain 5 pounds just thinking about it. It’s cinnamon ice cream with pieces of snickerdoodles in it and I think I may just need to try that…

    I totally agree with you; Ice cream is for any time and it is never too cold for it. When I was a kid in Japan, I sculpted a snow cone stand in my front yard (with snow of course)and even had a few customers!

    The cinnamon ice cream looks really yummy. I’ve never had that flavor. Gonna have to try it sometime. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
