Homemade Apple Pie Ice Cream

For each person in our family, we’ve always let the birthday boy/girl choose their birthday dinner and everyone else would make it. A tradition I’ve always loved and cherished. One year I chose 3 of my favorite recipes: dumplings, mashed potatoes, and mac and cheese… needless to say everyone could barely walk that night. Or function the next morning. Carb hangover is a thing right?

So this year, for Papa Bear’s Birthday, he decided to go fancy. We made him a delicious Lamb Ragu and for dessert, a restaurant worthy homemade Apple Pie Ice Cream. There was so much flavor in one night my mind and mouth couldn’t keep up with all the deliciousness! It was one of those meals where you loosen the jeans and keep forcing just one (or five) more bites just to taste the dishes again. With such a unique flavor packed dinner, the comforting apple pie ice cream was a perfect ending to the night.

While it definitely took a good amount of work and time, this dessert is so worth it. Every cinnamon-y apple loaded bite is like a feeling of every family and friends loving holiday dessert rolled into one. The french vanilla base is so creamy and soft, mix in the spiced baked apples and crunch of graham crackers and yes… yes it is drool worthy.

Nothing says summer like fresh homemade ice cream with fresh fruit. Apple pie may seem like a fall dessert but crank this baby out this summer and you’ll be making it all year. Don’t blame me when you can never go back to store bought ice cream again.
