I thought a good Cinnamon Ice Cream and the crisp would go quite nice with each other. Apple Crisp is Soooooo Easy. Really, 10 minutes and your house will be smelling like Autumn Comfort!!! uh, even if it’s spring. Who can resist the smell? If your making the Ice Cream with it, Consider doing the Ice Cream the night before, and finishing it up in the morning.
1 1/2 Cups Half & Half
1 Cup Sugar
Mix together in a sauce pan on medium heat, until steaming.
In the meantime, in a 2 cup measuring cup, place 5 egg yolks, and beat for about 2 minutes until light and lemony colored. Scoop 1 Cup of the milk mixture and whisking constantly, add the milk to the egg yolks. Pour the yolk mixture back into the pan and cook the mixture until slightly thick and coats the back of a spoon. Add 1 1/2 cups of Heavy Cream, 2 tsp. Cinnamon, and 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract. Stir well. Cool completely and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight. Pour the mixture into your ice cream container, (stir in a cup of Hershey’s Cinnamon chips here too, they’re wonderful in this) and mix according to manufactures direction. Serve with Apple Crisp.
Here’s how I make my Apple Crisp. It’s easy, fast and yummy!!
Take 4 large apples, peel, core and cut into desired slices. Take 1 Tbsp. Lemon juice and coat the apples with the lemon juice, stirring till well mixed. Spray an 8X8 pan with cooking spray, pour in the apples. Sprinkle apples with a 1/2 cup of raisins, if desired. In a Medium bowl, combine 3/4 cup Brown sugar, 1/2 Cup All purpose Flour, 1/2 Cup Oats (or use Granola if you’de like, I did, it’s extra yummy) 1 tsp. Cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg and 1/3 cup of softened butter. Mix well, until mixture resembles small peas. (I use my hands, and just work the mixture with my finger tips.) Sprinkle over apples and Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until crisp is browned and apples are tender. Serve Apple Crisp warm with Cinnamon Ice Cream. Doesn’t get much better than this!!
