My family loves the holiday season and this time of year! If you asked my boys, they would tell you their favorite part is all the pies! Pies are a huge part of our traditional meals and at our last family get together, we had a TON to choose from. The only problem is the leftovers and we had a full pie or two to take home with us. Most of the time we do not want to eat them right away, but want to make them last SO, what do we do with them to make them last longer? How about some ice cream?!?!?! We gave it a try and just have to share with you the results…you will not be disappointed!
What You Need:
- Favorite leftover apple pie
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 cup whole milk
- 3/4 cups sugar
- Favorite toppings: Whipped cream and caramel sauce (optional)
- Ice cream maker
- Blender (optional)
Step 1: Pick up a Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pie and Reddi-wip® up at Walmart to make this a super easy and yummy ice cream mix. There are quite a few flavors to choose from, but we deiced to start off with the Lattice Apple Pie. This year, with being pregnant and the kiddos’ activities going in opposite directions, these pies have been huge time savers and have been a favorite at any of the get togethers we have shared them at. The pie is in the ice-cream/dessert section and the Reddi-wip is in the dairy section
Step 2: Prepare your ice cream maker (place the bowl in the freezer, if needed, a head of time). Our particular ice cream maker needs about 12 hours in the freezer.
Step 3: If you haven’t already, bake your pie and let it cool. Having a piece or two is totally okay because believe me, if you cook a pie with other’s in the house, you bet they will ask!
Step 4: Create the ice cream base combining the heavy cream, milk and sugar in a separate bowl. I like to premix the ice cream base at least a few hours ahead of time and let it get extra chilly in the fridge. This tends to help speed up the ice cream making/turning time.
Step 5: When you are ready, start your ice cream maker and add your ice cream mix to the bowl.
Step 6: While the ice cream is mixing remove all the filling and blend it together. I separated the apple filling form the top crust for this part, setting the crust aside. I used half of the pie base crust and blended that with the apples until it was well blended (the blue bowl on the right in the pic below). The rest of the crust we crumbled and set aside to use as a topping later.
Step 7: Once the ice cream mix looks like it is almost done, Add the blended apple pie filling. This usually happens for us about 5 minutes before the ice cream is completely finished. Our ice cream maker usually only takes 20 minutes to make ice cream.
Step 8: Pour ice cream into a separate freezer safe dish and place in the freezer until it reaches desired consistency (I usually use a loaf pan). If you like soft served, you are ready to go right from the mixer. If you like a little thicker, like we do, set it aside in the freezer to chill for 1-2 hours.
Step 9: When ready to eat, serve it with your favorite toppings like, extra crumbled pie sauce, caramel sauce…
…and add some Reddi-wip®! My kiddos think there is no such thing as enough whipped cream and it makes everything that much “cooler!”
Step 10: Enjoy!
My husband, who is my biggest food critic, gave this a full 2 thumbs up! I now want to try it with other pie types. Can you just imagine them? Yum!!!
