The problem with pie is that it isn’t ice cream. And the problem with ice cream is, of course, that it isn’t pie. 

This apple pie ice cream recipe is an easy solution to these incredibly serious problems.

Step 1: Prep Creamy Base

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cup whole milk
  • 2 egg yolks, wisked
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine the milk and sugar in a medium saucepan and slowly heat on low until you have a light simmer.

In the separate bowl with your 2 wisked egg yolks, slowly add some of your warmed milk, whisking constantly. When the mixture is fully mixed, slowly add the egg mixture back into the saucepan. Continue to whisk.

Add the heavy cream. Cook on low and continue to stir until the custard base reaches reaches 160 degrees, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat and add in the cinnamon and vanilla. Let cool and then transfer to an air-tight container (or a strong Ziplock bag) and place in the refrigerator to chill. 
Incredibly serious problem, indeed! Looks yummy. Good luck on the contest!
5 Star deliciousness. ;-P~
I can attest to the fact that this is delicious.
You can do the same with pumpkin pie. It comes out more homogeneous but just as tasty. In fact, just about any strong tasting pie would have potential.
