Apple Pie Filling

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp water

pie crust


ice cream

  • in a large saucepan heat half and half and sugar over low heat
  • stir the vanilla into the mixture
  • once the liquid is completely heated, turn off the heat
  • in a large bowl whisk the egg yolks until they are thick and lighter in color, a slightly pale yellow
  • temper the egg yolks by scooping out about a 1/4 of a cup of the heated half and half mixture and VERY slowly drizzle into the egg yolks as you whisk
  • whisk the egg yolk mixture into the saucepan with the rest of the half and half mixture
  • cook over low heat stirring constantly until it becomes thick
  • pour through a strainer into a large bowl
  • stir in the heavy cream
  • allow the mixture to chill completely (I like to chill overnight)

Apple Pie filling

  • combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat
  • stir until the apples become soft and sauce is thick
  • add more water a bit at a time if it becomes to thick
  • remove from heat and allow to cool completely or or overnight

Pie Crust

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • lay pie crust dough out flat on a parchment lined baking sheet
  • brush with melted butter on both sides
  • in a small bowl combine sugar and cinnamon
  • sprinkle even over both sides of the crust
  • bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until crispy
  • allow it to cool completely and then break it up into bite sized pieces

Apple Pie Ice Cream

  • pour the ice cream mixture into an ice cream maker and prepare according to the maker's instructions
  • once the ice cream reaches the soft serve consistency slowly pour in the apple pie filling as the ice cream maker still turns
  • then slowly add in the pie crust
  • pour into a container and freeze for an additional 8 hours
  • Enjoy!!!
