This blending of seasons in this homemade Apple Pie Ice Cream brings you a sense of comfort, sweetness, and a delicious cool treat.
  • 1 cup whole milk, preferably raw
  • ½ cup honey (or preferred natural sweetener)
  • 2 cups heavy cream, divided, preferably raw
  • Pinch of unrefined sea salt
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
For the apples:
  • 1½ Tbsp butter
  • 3 large apples, peeled and diced into small pieces
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  1. In a medium sauce pan over medium-low heat, whisk together the milk, honey, 1 cup of cream, and sea salt. When the mixture begins to simmer, remove the sauce pan from heat.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks. Pour a ladle-full of the heated liquid from the sauce pan into the bowl of egg yolks. Whisk quickly and add a few more ladle fulls of the liquid to the eggs. Whisk continuously so that the egg yolks do not scramble.
  3. Pour the tempered egg mixture back into the saucepan and heat the sauce pan on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. When the sauce thickens, remove from heat. Add cinnamon and vanilla.
  4. Pour the milk mixture into the remaining 1 cup of cream. Let the mixture cool, then refrigerate this mixture until well chilled.
  5. Once chilled, prepare the apples before you add the milk mixture to your ice cream machine. To prepare the apples, melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add apples and cinnamon and stir. Sautee the apples until golden and soft (about 10-15 minutes). Let the apples cool.
  6. Now, add the sauteed apples to half of the milk mixture. Puree the mixture in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  7. Pour the pureed mixture and the remaining milk mixture into your ice cream maker. Freeze it according to manufacturer's instructions.
