31 Oct 7 DAYS OF PUMPKIN SPICE: HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN PIE ICE CREAM
Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream.. I know what you’re probably thinking, that its too cold for ice cream. Not in this house! I eat ice cream all year round, it’s such a great dessert and you can easily customize the base to suit the season. Can’t wait for Christmas to make an eggnog version, cinnamon apple and maybe a candy cane ice cream?
Being that this is the last day of October, this is also the last day for my 7 Days of Pumpkin Spice. I love this time of year, the crisp fall air, the ever changing colour of leaves and my favourite, baking with pumpkin. Pumpkin is such an easy ingredient to work with. Most recipes that call for yogurt or apple sauce can be substituted with pumpkin. It adds moisture to cakes and muffins and seems strange to bake with but it’s actually so good. I’m a little sad pumpkin season is almost over.
This Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream recipe is a no-churn ice cream so you don’t need a fancy ice cream machine and the result is a light but creamy ice cream that will take you no less than the time it’ll take you to eat this ice cream. After making the base, I folded in store bought ginger snap cookies as the “crust” to the pumpkin pie and drizzled dulce de leche for a little something extra.

Crush up the ginger snap cookies and fold it into the mixture, save a handful for the top of the pan.
