Cherry Pie Ice Cream

Cherry Pie Ice Cream

It seems no matter where you go in summer you’ll see frozen treat machines displayed in every store saying. “Hey! Buy me!“. But if your anything like me you resist, because the last thing you want is another thing to store in the kitchen, and from past experience you know they never work well enough to put forth the effort over simply just buying the frozen treats. I’ll let you in on a little secret, you don’t have to have an ice cream machine to enjoy homemade ice cream. It’s true! I’ve been whipping up lots of different ice cream flavors using a few popular easy ice cream methods and to show you just how easy and fun it can be I’m officially calling it Ice Cream Week here at Make Bake Celebrate! That’s right a whole week full of sweet and yummy cold treats perfect to kick off summer!

Here’s what you’re going to need:

2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Can 14oz Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 Can Cherry Pie Filling (You can use the rest to top!)
1 Pie Crust

Cherry Pie Ice Cream

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350. Cut pie crust into small pieces and bake on parchment lined cookie sheet for 12 minutes until golden. I chose to cut mine into stars to make a perfect patriotic treat, totally optional of course.

Step 2: Place metal mixing bowl and whisks in freezer for 5 minutes to chill. Whip 2 cups of heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks have formed.

Step 3: Pour in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla, whip just until combined. About 30 seconds.

Step 4: Pour half of your whipping cream mixture into a 1.5 liter (aprox) container. Swirl in a layer of cherry pie filling and pie crusts pieces. Pour and smooth more whipping cream over the first layer leaving just a little bit in the bowl. Add another layer of cherry pie filling and pie crust pieces then top with the little bit of whipping cream left.

Step 5: Freeze in container over night.

Ice cream will freeze solid but softens perfectly to serve after a few minutes left sitting out on the counter.
