Apple Pie Ice Cream

Apple Pie Ice Cream


Apple Compote

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 medium-sized Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces.

Ice Cream Base

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cream
  • 3/4 cup crushed plain cookies


Prepare Compote

  1. Place brown sugar and butter in a medium saucepan. Stir until the butter is melted and the brown sugar and butter are combined. Add apples and pie spice, stir to coat the apples. Simmer, partially covered, for 10-15 minutes, until the apples are tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until chilled. Once chilled, prepare ice cream base.

Ice Cream

  1. In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, pie spice, and vanilla extract.
  2. Puree half the apple compote (it won’t be completely smooth; that’s OK), and stir the pureed compote into the condensed milk mixture. Set aside.
  3. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip the heavy cream until stiff, billowy peaks form. Gently fold half the whipped cream into the condensed milk, then fold in the other half. Stir in most of the cookie crumbs, reserving a tablespoon or two for the top.
  4. Pour half the ice cream base into a 2-quart container (I used a loaf pan). Top with half the remaining apple compote. Pour in the last half of the ice cream base and top with the remaining apple compote and reserved cookie crumbs.
  5. Cover and freeze until firm, at least 6 hours.
