Salted Caramel Sauce

  • 1 Batch Salted Caramel Sauce make before hand

Apple Pie Filling

  • 2 Large Granny Smith Apples peeled, cored, chopped into small chunks
  • 2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • ¼ Cup (55 grams) Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Ground Nutmeg

Ice Cream Base

  • 2 Cups (500 ml) Heavy Cream
  • 1 Cup (250 ml) Whole Milk
  • tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar divided
  • 5 Egg Yolks
  • ½ tsp Almond Extract
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice


Salted Caramel Sauce

  • Follow directions in Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe.

Apple Pie Ice Cream

  • Melt butter in large saucepan on medium heat, then add brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in apple chunks and continue to cook until soft.
  • Remove from heat and let apple pie filling cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, make ice cream base.
  • In a medium saucepan, on medium heat, stir together cream, milk, ½ cup of sugar, and salt. Heat until warm, barely a bubble, and not boiling.
  • In a large bowl, hand whisk together egg yolks and remaining ½ cup of sugar. Whisk until light in color, about two minutes.
  • Slowly pour half of the hot mixture into the egg mixture, continually whisking.
  • Pour the egg and cream mixture (tempered eggs) back into saucepan with remaining cream mixture. Stir gently with a wooden spoon for 2-4 minutes, until thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice and almond extract.
  • Pour mixture through a sieve into a large bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours, until thoroughly chilled.
  • Pour chilled ice cream base into the ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer's instructions. It should thicken and resemble soft serve ice cream. (about 25-30 minutes)
  • Once thickened fold in the apple pie filling chunks. Transfer to an airtight freezer safe container, by alternating with a layer of apple pie ice cream and drizzles of caramel sauce. You will not use all the caramel sauce, so save some for drizzling on ice cream when served.
  • Freeze for 5-6 hrs or overnight.
