Apple Pie Ice Cream

Apple Pie Ice Cream

Combining vanilla ice cream and apple pie is magical.

I think you’ll really enjoy this apple pie ice cream. The best news is, I’m going to make life easy for you. For this recipe you can buy an apple pie from the supermarket in the frozen section. They’re only a few dollars but they work exceptionally well in ice cream.

Once you buy the apple pie, chop it up and add it to the fridge so that it’s cool when you toss it into the ice cream.
