I am learning to love "fall" in the desert. Sure, I miss cooler temperatures and changing leaves and an actual new season. But, one thing El Paso fall has that Germany didn't is 90 degree weather. :) That means I can still break out the ice cream machine and make a fall inspired treat for my family.
This ice cream is AMAZING! My husband said it is one of the best, if not THE BEST, ice cream I have ever made. I combined my favorite vanilla ice cream with cooked apples and a delicious crisp. Wow... just delicious!
So, if you are still having warm temps, make some ice cream. And if you are cold already, well, still make some ice cream. You won't be disappointed!
Apple Crisp Ice Cream
Use your favorite vanilla recipe! Need about 2 pints.
2 granny smith apples, peeled and chopped
2 TBSP butter
1/4 tsp apple pie spice
2 TBSP brown sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
6 TBSP butter
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
For Apples: Melt butter in skillet. Add apples through brown sugar and saute until apples are soft. Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice. Let cool.
For Crisp: Mix all ingredients until crumbly. Pour onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until crisp. Let cool and break into pieces.
Mix apples and crisp into ice cream. Freeze.
