When you are dreaming of Fall, but the weather is still warm, Apple Pie Ice Cream is the perfect solution.
The beginnings of Fall has arrived. The cooler mornings that I love, the leaves beginning to change and lots of apples at the Farmer’s Market! I think most of you would agree that Fall and apples can only mean one thing – apple pie. I love a good apple pie. And my Easy Apple Pie recipe usually hits the spot. But with the days still not being as cool as I like, I thought I would make some apple pie ice cream instead.
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.
How to Make Apple Pie Ice Cream
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 loved all the cinnamon goodness in the ice cream. The cinnamon sugar apples, cinnamon ice cream and cinnamon graham crackers are such a delicious combo!
I made the ice cream in my table top 2 qt. Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker that I love! If you are looking for a new ice cream maker, give this one a look!
